Introducing Simplelinks, a collection of interesting spaces on the Web. A blogmark of sorts, Simplelinks is where I’ll put links to things I find interesting, things I might want to revisit in the future. This is primarily a resource for me, but I’m making it public in case anyone else wants to use it. The RSS feed is located at

Adam, how come the list of Simplelinks-topics shortens when I click one? Lawrence

The topics list is generated using MT's category tags and the category archive type. If a category doesn't have an entry in it, the archive list won't display it. I actually about a dozen categories pre-loaded, but they won't appear until there are entries in them. The reason some topic pages have shorter topic lists is that they haven't been rebuilt. For instance, the first entry was in the PHP Development section. The last entry was in the Site Management section. So any topics that had their last entry created before the first Site Management entry wouldn't display the site management topic in the topic list. Until all the topics have entires in them, the topic lists will be a little out of sync. I should probably rebuild the site every so often until that happens. I hope that some of that made sense, but I doubt it.

That makes perfect sense, I should have figured it out myself. Brad Choate has something similar as a Sideblog but I like the fact that yours has a RSS Feed. Lawrence
