If you are running the previous version, there are upgrade instructions in the zip.
I have included also a new 'Installer', 'Un-Installer' and 'Upgrade' Feature to reduce hassle, and help you upgrade your version, install a new copy, or uninstall at ease. If any problems occure, please PM me immediatly.
11/8/2002
Minor mistake in Top 10 Visited Sites, if you have validation enabled, pleae download the new zip, and overwrite the links.php with the new one, if you don't...I would suggest you still download the new links.php and overwrite it.
11/8/2002
There was a little error in Top 10 Visited sites, if you downloaded the zip after the new zip file, please download this new zip file, and replace the links.php file with the one in this zip.
11/11/2002
There was an error with the code in the upgrade file, if you upgraded, and the hack didn't work, please run this query in PhpMyAdmin
SQL Query: (how to run queries)
ALTER TABLE gportal_weblinkslink ADD hits VARCHAR (255) NOT NULL, ADD valid int(11) DEFAULT '1' NOT NULL

7/10/2002
Database field error. Some fields in the links table, including hits, link url etc, are of wrong value, and on the Top 10 Links when a site gets 99 hits, it will go back to 0 hits and start again. If you have installed vB Links Directory before July 10th 2003 then please CLICK HERE to download the file db_fix.php. Follow the instructions in the post.


AFTER INSTALLATION YOU MUST GO TO VBULLETIN OPTIONS, AND SUBMIT THE OPTIONS, AFTER YOU CHANGE THE VALIDATION OPTION. THIS IS MANDATORY, DO THIS EVEN IF YOU WISH TO HAVE VALIDATION.

Also out of respect I ask that you please do not release revamped versions of this hack as a new one, I have put countless hours into working on the basic functions, and coding it, and I would really be dissappointed. Thanks

Enjoy!

Are you saying...

You'd like to have a Category IN your forum, which is similar to your other categories... Example Vbulletin.org...

They have categories on their main page (In Grey) which say:

>>>Vbulletin.org<<<
>>>Code Hacks<<<
>>>Graphics and ..<<<
Then you want one that says......
>>>Links<<<

*Of course, using Vbulletin.org as an example?

I will look into it, I forgot to do this :-/ I will go for it.

JakeC, I did something like this for my friends forum, the links directory appears as a catagory at the end of the forumbits

See screenshot

If its something like that, yes it can be done

Links that are added by my users are added without me Validating them, even though I have it marked for me to validate them before adding them!

What is wrong?

Go to your admin cp, then:
vBulletin Options->vB Links Directory (check if it to yes, if it is already then...)-> Save Changes, do it 2 times to make sure you did it right.

Then add a link via the site to make sure.

Has anyone had any reports of someone adding a link and it not "taking" it? Seems that I've entered some 2 and 3 times before it would validate in the admin cp... I've turned off validation for the moment... would a few of you today go and add your link to see if it accepts it?

With further troubleshooting...

Are there requirements for the "URL" is there parameters set that it must look specific??

I've tried to enter this URL http://www.viaarena.com/?PageID=91
and it wouldn't accept it...??? But I can add http://www.viaarena.com with no problems ?

Thanks for giving the head up David, I will look into it, I think its the sign problem, or unless you have validation on.
