Hi, I've been using the Links Module for years. I am still using version 4.0.1 on our live website, since when I tried to upgrade to 6.02.02 awhile ago, It caused all my dropdown lists to break.
When I recently upgraded the site to DNN 9.0.0, I started having a problem, in that the Links dropdown lists cannot be edited properly. When I attempt to edit an item in the list, nothing happens after clicking the Edit button (It only works for the very first item, not for any other items in the list). So I tried again to upgrade the module (on out test website of course!) , this time to the latest version (Links 6.02.03).
But, now all the dropdowns cause critical errors and dont show at all. Below I've pasted an example of the error.
So I've got the problem of being unable to edit a dropdown when using Links 4.0.1, and having massive critical errors in dropdowns if I update to 6.02.02 or 6.02.03. (Again, this is when running DNN 9.0.0)
Anyone know anything about this? What should I do? Thanks
-Tom

Does anyone know about the Links Module? I've asked questions on Git Hub about this module but have never gotten a response. Is this module going away?

I mainly use it as an easy way to create dropdown menus. They could be done in HTML or some other way, but I already have many of them which will break if the Links module stops working.

Does anyone know where to find support for the Links module?

Thanks
Tom

I guess I will probably just redo my dropdowns some other way. Nobody knows anything about the Links module?

Links Module is something from that past and better be forgotten. The way links are made with that module is bad for your SEO. I would find another way and no longer use that module.

Thanks for letting me know. Do you know a replacement module that similarly allows a user to make links in a (select -  option) dropdown list?  That's what I was using Links module for.
I would like to be able to keep providing website page editors the ability to create dropdown link lists, and add links to them. let me know if you know of any other modules that have that functionality.

Thanks!
Tom
