    Expensive, but I agree...

    The flat file version is less expenisve but lacks a lot of functions that the MySql version has. If you can afford it, go for the MySql version right from the start...

    When I ran a directory, I used Powerseek by Focalmedia:

    Powerseek

    Cheaper than Gossamer, and you can configure every aspect of it through a ton of templates. Runs with MySQL, and the support is awesome.

    Disclaimer: I know nothing about Gossamer, so I'm not sure how it compares, but at least check it out!

    I have been looking around for a free php/mysql program. I haven't found anything that really thrills me and I will probably use Gossamer Threads again.

    I have used Gossamer Threads (the flat file version) on a number of sites for the past 5 years.

    I like it because:
    1) It creates static html pages which are very search engine friendly
    2) Tons of useful mods are written for it
    3) Active user community
    4) fairly easy to modify

    I had close to 5000 links on one site and it performed well.

    Why not just install drupal (drupal.org) and add the links module? It's all GPL. It's search engine friendly, and you ca nmod it if you are so inclined.

    I stumbled onto these guys the other day and been messing around with the program. It seems like a good program to me.

    Chet-
    It doesn't use mysql yet there are query string parameters. Does it read a text or xml file every page load ?

    I've been looking at some CMS/blog software lately. I need to figure out what I really want to do but I want to create a site that's part link directory, part picture post that allows comments, part forum and part blog. At the moment I'm leaning towards Moveable Type.

    phpNuke combined with Gallery from menalto is a good combination. There is a phpNuke Links directory mod that adds photos to the directory, or you can just add photos to the description area.

    It works best with datafeeds that have categories separate and identified by numbers, otherwise you have to do some pre-prep on the datafeed.

    I have dropped working on this to work with LinksSql for a while, but the pieces for phpNuke are out there if you look for them.

    You might try Arelis if your goal is links instead of a data feed.
