How can I look like Yahoo!?

Many users want to present a "directory format" like Yahoo!, where there are nested categories that users can browse. The categories contain either more subcategories or individual sites.

These are two separate things: 1. a directory that users can browse with "portal software"; 2. a set of files that users can search with "search engine software". Both types of things appear side-by-side on many sites and they are related, but the backend functionality is somewhat different and FDSE only does the latter.

At some point in the future FDSE may provide this functionality, or integrate with a companion script.
