    Default Facebook Links

    Is it just me, or has anybody else encountered database error messages when try to add Facebook links in recent days?

    This seems to be dragging on a bit, still can't add any links. Any news on this, Dave?

    Things appear to be back to normal.

    As an aside, can us mere mortals add Facebook, Twitter and web site links to an existing pub? I have only ever seen the option to add a link at the time of adding a new pub (and that is only for the official web site, not Facebook etc).

    I can't see anything relevant under the "Correct details" option and under the "External Links" section there is a big "DELETE!" button next to each for removing a rogue link, but no obvious way of making a correction or adding a new one.

    I'd imagine if I can delete a link, I should be able to add one, or am I overthinking things here? Have I missed something blindingly obvious?

    You should be able to see a 'Submit a Web Link' box below the existing external web links for the pub?
