How if you open links.html in Notepad/VI or any other text editor?
Does it contain anything?

How if you view the source in your browser?
Does it contain anything?

Could you point us to an URL?

Yes ..i checked ..  and it contained all the html tags. I even viewd it in cute ftp.
( I do not use Telnet.)
I  tryed a brand new links.html file from matt's .. my old one was slightly modifyed by me ..but it still didn't work.

Sorry i can not piont you to the url right now. I deleted the files but i will have them up and running again tonight.

>> nothing is displayed
Is _nothing_ displayed or is nothing from your new post displayed?

Anyway, I am suspecting that you are missing an ending </TABLE>
Go through links.html and count all the <TABLE> tags.
Then count all the </TABLE> tags.
If you have got less </TABLE> than <TABLE> that is why nothing shows up.

I tried adding my site and it was added to database.txt alright.

I have checked some "Free for all links" pages around the net and they all looks just like your.

Have you edited the script anything?

About your UNIX/NT theory...The script can open database.txt so there should not be anything wrong with the system.

Do you use version 2.2 of the script?
All versions prior to 2.2 aren't NT-compatible.
(Look in your links.pl at the top row for the version number)

U need to add this to the beginning of ur links page
This is because script is looking for a start point which is done by the below code. Do use  it and reply back of the same.
SELECT THE BELOW AND PASTE IT TO UR PAGE
