First off, I would actually take a look at the source of your new
webpage. I know that some browsers will not display broken images and
so you won't see the links at all. :-( (I have experienced this with
Netscape in a few versions.)

If you see the links in the webpage source, then it's not a problem
with the code or the databases, it's either a problem in the
templates or the browser.
