The Basic List O' Links is about 1 hour from completion. Stay tuned.


Aug 4th, 2008, 08:54 PM
It looks great Ryan, the links are matched with separate topics and sub topics making it faster to find threads. I also like the new window when opening threads as I tend to jump back and forth when I refer to them if leaving information for people.

Takes a lot of work to insert links in a normal thread, much less one with so many threads inserted.

Great job as usual.:bigups

I didn't try ALL of the threads but the ones I used work fine BTW :D
