I use my links manager to post a bunch of links daily to interesting stuff. I'd like to use the built-in link rating system to rate these, but I can't seem to find a way to set up a voting form to update the link (I'd like to add a star-based system to the frame I attach to the top of the screen when clicking one of these links. See http://www.kaihen.com "Entertaining Links" area for what I mean). I'd also like to be able to call the rating for a specific link entry easily and include it with the link itself.
These seem like the kind of thing that would be built into the functionality of the links manager, but I've having a tough time finding them.
