    I dunno if this is a hack or not. But I need help anyway..
    I want my links to be in columns so I wrote up a very crude something to columnize. You can see the result here and the source here.
    The problem is I'm having trouble limiting it to certain categories. I'm sure it's easy but I'm tired and I've been working on the same thing all day, as my php skills are limited (greatly).
    Would anyone car to help?

    Errh. You may be getting a bit of feedback anytime soon. Beautifully executed set of tables. Really neat.

    I suggest you remove the dbname and dbpassword from the source that you have posted. You don't want everyone to know the password :)
    Using tables is okay, but to ensure semantical correctness, you could do the same with lists. Using the display: inline feature in the css definition, you can have the categories display in columns.
    for each category you could have a <li id="something"> and you could have the li's with the something ids to display inline, that is, without a line break between two consecutive li's , or even ul's.

    The tables were simply the easiest thing to work with right now. Getting the php to do what I want is my main concern. I don't want to be mucking around with the css all day. I can make it look pretty later. "Semantical correctness" is important to me but only in the end product.
    I know I can already put like one category in a column and another category next to it but it's a little confusing/boring. The same thing goes with monthly/weekly archives. I like them in one block of 2 or 3 columns. I think it even looks nice in a sidebar like that.
    I've even played with css and came up with something that does make columns but it only works in firefox. Why can't everyone just use the worlds most perfect browser!
