data written to same link id #????
I have a couple of Links 2 installations and both as of late are misbehaving in the same way i.e the link data on validation command (infrequently) writes both inputs to the same link id # see example below:

To expand a little the links to be validated appear normally however upon validation I first receive an error message that a confirmation email could not be sent and it then displays both email addresses in a single string.When I do a category check an error appears there and as I said both link inputs write to the same ID # and display jointly. My second Links 2 install has been doing this almost from day 1 so I assumed there was an install glitch but now my first site which has been doing just fine has also misfired in this same fashion. Somebody...anybody got an idea as to why this is happening??

Yes this has happend to me, It seems that the problem lies with either adding in admin and using the back button instead of clicking ADD, or the linkid file is being accessed at the same time or not being updated properly.

This is happened when a user submit a site and in the sucess page they click refresh instead of another link in you home page.

And I posted codes in the Perl/CGI Forum that checks the links.db and validate.db before allowing the form to be re-submitted. Basically, if the person clicks on reload or refresh buttons, they will get an error message stating that the link has already been received and will be validated soon or already exists in the links.db file.

Further to this "glitch" please note these 2 sites which are giving me this problem (on occassion) have the confirmation mod installed. Based on some of your responses as stated above I sense this mod's operation might contribute to this scenario.Yes? No?
