View Full Version : Link Exchange Script Needs Updating

Looks like the link exchange script (http://www.gotmead.com/cgi-bin/mrlsf.cgi) needs to be modified to accept pages using CSS and XHTML. Tried to post a link exchange with you. The requesting site (Jabley.com) uses CSS and XHTML technologies to achieve a consistent look (as do most modern sites), and it doesn't look like the script will tolerate these tags. For example, the script requests this HTML be placed on the initiating site:

<a href="http://www.gotmead.com">
GotMead.com - The Mead Portal (Over 1200 pages of Mead info)

but can't recognize the following XHTML/CSS as valid:

<a href='http://www.gotmead.com' title='GotMead.com - The Mead Portal (Over 1200 pages of Mead info)'>GotMead?</a><br />

A very high percentage of newer sites are going to be using some CSS to achieve a consistent look, so it might be worthwhile to get the CGI (Perl, I guess?) to look for a more general link structure. Would be happy to take a look at the script if need-be.
