I got the Link module because I thought it would help me manage links in my pages. But I have the following two problems:
- When I enter links in the "Links" form on the page-editing page (the functionality that appeared after installing the Link module), all this seems to do is put a list of those links at the bottom of the page. It doesn't seem to give me any way to place those links where I need them in the text of the page. Am I missing something?
- I thought that one advantage of using this module was going to be that I could use defined links on different pages, so that when a URL goes bad and I need to update it, all the links to that URL would change automatically. But all I see is the ability to define links separately and independently on any page they need to appear on. Again, am I missing something?
I thought that managing links data (and other repeated content) from a database would be one of the major advantages of using a system like Drupal. Am I trying to do it the wrong way, or was I mistaken that this can be done?
(Note, I'm not talking about user-entered content here. Although there might be a forum on one of the sites, the vast majority of content will be entered and updated by one or two administrators.)
(And I suppose Views could do what I'm talking about for structured output, like a table, but I'm talking about links that need to appear on arbitrary strings of text anywhere in a page.)
