I've been thinking since KDE 1.x that it would be really nice if Konqueror (and before that KFM) would be able to create and edit symlinks. It seems to me that it would be great if the "Create New" menu had a "symbolic link" option and viewing the properties of an already created symlink would allow you to change where it points to.
Just a thought. Thanks for all of your hard work Konqueror is great!

and also creating/editing symlinks for ftp directories (i want one file had few names)
(sorry for ugly engl)
In KDE 3.2, symlinks can be created but not edited. Please add a facility to edit existing symbolic links. A clean way would be to make it part of the Properties dialogue box.

Just for the record, it would be nice to put http://www.keelhaul.demon.co.uk/linux/#symlink into CVS...
This bug appears to be duplicate of bug 8580.

RMB->properties on a symlink show then destination
why can't I modify it ?
In 3.4, the properties dialog of a symlink doesn't make much sense...
Say I have a symlink to a dir, when I see it's properties I see the name of the symlink, it's location and where it points to (that's good), but also "Type: Folder" - BAD! It should read something like "Type: Symbolic link" and then "Points to: /path/of/destination (Folder)" or something like that...
This is indeed a dup of #8850... but the point given there is quite interesting. Please take a look at the possibility of integrating the functionality present in http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=11626 into the properties dialog.
Thanks for a wonderful desktop!
Managing symlinks will be available in KDE 4.4.
I don't understand how we can create or edit symlinks...
It seems like it is not implemented.
