    Not accepting two links with the same name is as designed.

    I am unable to reproduce the issue you mentioned about links for sub-pages on same domain not being accepted. I also checked the code and do not see any such restrictions. It should only reject links where the entire URL is already present in database.

    Thank you for taking your time to verify that.
    It seems, that this issue occurs in case of sub-page on a domain existing in the Link Directory AND simultaneously having link name the same as one of link names in the directory. If link name is different, submission is accepted.

    Maybe this is intended, correct. Why submit two pages from the same domain having same title ?

    Yes, this is intended. I implemented some basic rules. If the name matches an existing link, there is a good change that someone is trying to submit the same link. If the URL is the same, they are definitely trying to re-submit an existing link.

    Of course, admin moderation is probably always good to do as well to double-check what gets through, but I feel these rules make sense.
