How "View Links in a Category" Works:

Ok, we're going to try to simplify this for you. Ready? Ok, here we go. This will allow you to view links posted with a particular category applied to it. If you choose to view the links "Cats" any links attached to that category will be shown to you while links that don't have that category attached will be hidden. Mind blowing, no?
