Several questions:

Is it possible to divide the links by state? If WSN Links was set up to hold businesses…for example:
Category (eg. Fishing)
Sub Category (eg. Rods)
Link (eg. Barry’s Rod Store)

With the Link having a custom field called “state”, could WSN Links be made to only show links that are in that user’s location (state) which they would have selected via a drop-down menu on the main page (possibly by use of a GET variable in the URL).

We have also been having problems when a link is added it would show up twice in the admin panel needing validation which gets quite messy.

Here's a possibility for an equals option filter, but I'm probably not going to fix it anytime soon if it doesn't work:

In start.php, change
	 if ($filtertype == 'less') $settings->condition .= ' '. $field .' <= '. $value .' AND';  
to
	 if ($filtertype == 'less') $settings->condition .= ' '. $field .' <= '. $value .' AND';  
else if ($filtertype == 'equals') $settings->condition .= " $field == '$value' AND";


Then use the filter condition 'equals' in the same way the manual instructs for 'less' and 'between'.

We have also been having problems when a link is added it would show up twice in the admin panel needing validation which gets quite messy.

You'll need to be more specific there.
