What does this addon do?

It shows thumbnails and informations to links, which got entered in the posts, just like attachments at the end of a post, similar to facebook.

This addon is early beta, so please give me some feedback

Installation:

Copy all files and directories of '/upload' into your forumroot, afterwards import the product file 'product-vblinkfetch.xml' in AdminCP.

If you don't use TMS, you need to change a template manually:

Name of tempate: postbit_legacy

Search for:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Above this insert:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Of coz you can put this below the attachment fields or any other place you like in that template.

Now you can configure the addon under:

'Settings' -> 'Otions' -> 'vBulletin-Linkfetch'

That's it

Vossi I get this error if "Additional informations" is set to yes. If I turn it off it seems to work fine.

Warning: file_get_contents() [function.file-get-contents]: URL file-access is disabled in the server configuration in [path]/includes/functions_vblinkfetch.php on line 141

Warning: file_get_contents(http://tehnoart.eu/russobalt-model.html) [function.file-get-contents]: failed to open stream: no suitable wrapper could be found in [path]/includes/functions_vblinkfetch.php on line 141
Please add the ability to exclude forums. Thank you...

Found another issue Vossi.

When using artviper.net it fails to create a thumbnail if the link is internal. Say to another post on the same forum. Also with artviper.net a PDF link is ignored and a missing attachment is displayed.

On an up-note I noticed dead links to pages no longer available now displayed the websites homepage if one was available.

Feature request. Many members have websites that they link to on their profiles. It would be nice to include this.

Sometimes it takes a while until the thumbnail is build by the thumbnail services. That's why a kind of 'waiting' screen ist getting shown sometimes.

I was concentrating on the german thumbnail services, but there should also be others available which can be added as user defined.

I'm working on this right now like select for single posts, forums etc. Maybe Im done with it by tomorrow.

Its not the delay while the thumb builds but an actual problem loading an internal link and the pdf. Other external links on the same page work just fine.

Vossi, thumbshots.org killed the images today. Worked fine yesterday but not today.

I once used Shrinktheweb.com for thumbs in the profile. Can you look into their free service and try and integrate it into the mod.

Heres a link. http://www.shrinktheweb.com/content/...nail-code.html

Also can you include the option for more user defined inputs. Right now it seems to only support IMG SRC but allot of thumbnail providers use JS or PHP.

A list of popular Thumbnail Services.

Thanks again....

So Scalemotorcars do you have this mod working on your site? I think this would be of great use but from what I am reading it sounds like it is not working very well.

Sorry to say I uninstalled. All the thumbers would stop working within a day. I think it has more to do with the thumbers maxing out requests.
