Thanks for your reply!

Today I've made some progress on the Link Page MOD.

I've started building the ACP-module. It takes some time because I'm new to making such modules (adding, editing and deleting link categories). But I'll manage ;)

Today I've worked on finishing the url-remover and url-editor. And I have finished it :D
This means:
When you are in the category manager screen (view screenshot) and you are looking at the bunch of links belonging to that category, you can simply delete them by clicking the red button or edit them by clicking the green button.

When you click delete and confirm, the link will be removed from your database. So it is really gone. No way back.
When you click edit, you arrive in the url-editor screen. That looks like this:

Image

At the url-editor you can simply change the link name and link url. If you would like to transport the link to another category, you can change the category ID to the one you would like the link to be transported to.

This is looking great and would be handy. I'd use this if there was a download link. Excellent!

Today I've started working on the result that will be visible at your board: the linkpage.
During that progress I've started questioning myself which layout structure is desirable. I really want a nice, understandable and clean look.

What I came up with is shown in the screenshot below.

Image

This means when you visit the Link Page you first will see an overview of the link categories and their description. What I have done now, is creating a link from the category name to an overview page of the links belonging to that category.
To make sure you know which category you are pointing with your mouse, the background color of it will change (in the screenshot category two 'Test category' is pointed).

This layout structure is slightly different than I had in mind. Now it is a two step page. But I like it :D

The question is, do you like it? So if you would like to have some influence on my creative proces, this is the time to share your opinion on this matter.

You mean how many times a link category has been viewed just like the post count view?
