drag n drop links
I have a large html page with about 800 links. The links are not in any sort of orer or categories.
I would like to group the links by category.
Is there some kind of visual editor that I could use for drag n drop manipulation?
sorry, but I'm an old notepad kinda coder.

I don't exactly follow? Wouldn't it be easier to create a database to put the links in? Maybe three rows like
Then query out the links by category? Something like
select link from table where cat = category
Do you literally have an html list full of 800 hard coded links? If so, why?Thanks!

Is there any text within the links that will help you categorize them ? If so there is an editor named SED that will extract them to a listing. However it normally only runs or Linux, Mac or Unix, but it can be ported to Windows. It usually runs in the BASH shell. It would take me about five minutes to write a shell script to do it.
Or are you obliged to do it 'by hand' ?
PS: I've found that you can drag and drop links into a textarea window,at least with modern browsers. Then you could upload them in a form and edit them with a text editor. But only includes the URL, they would have to be parsed.
