Currently anyone can submit links and categories - just click on "suggest
a link" or "suggest a category" at the bottom of the relevant
category. The links aren't added straight away though. I have an admin
section where I can approve, edit and delete links and categories. You
just can't beat the human touch!

I agree that would be great, but I have a feeling it would be a headache
to implement (I'm still pretty new to PHP). Also that's kind of what the
breadcrumbs trail is for. I'll think about it and see if I can come up
with a better approach.

This is definitely possible, and a good idea. I'll see what I can do.

The way I see this, if you want a new window you can always shift-click,
but if you don't, you don't have to put up with them. I'm hoping to offer
more customisation at some point in the future, so I guess this could be
one of the options.
