What is vBulletin Link Directory:

vBulletin Link Directory with vBulletin integration has a couple of functions and options that a comfortable link directory needs to have:
  • Links can be moderated
  • Categories with subcategories (with images/icons/descriptions/etc)
  • Subcategories in subcategories
  • Comment-function (also moderated)
  • Uses the forum search for finding links
  • Detailed usergroup and administrator permissions
  • Uses vBseo and vBCMS
  • Facebook integration
  • Thumbnail and banner function
  • Additional pictures/icons in categories
  • Fully vB-standard kept within code
  • Additional Functions for Links/Images
  • Meta-Informations
  • Check if link exists, read linked site informations, etc
  • Google PageRank
  • Alexa Page Traffic
  • 'Link-us'-function
  • Additional style settings (fixed sizes for banners/images by stylevars)
  • Show direktlink and thumbnails while categorie view

Installation/Update:

Upload all files you find in /upload to your forum root and change
the read/write permissions of:

/vblinklist/backup
/vblinklist/image

to 0777 in order to be able to make backups if needed.

Afterwards import 'product-vblinklist.xml' in admincp. Then configure the group permissions aswell as the administrator permissions.

Now you can change the settings of the addons in admincp and create categories like you want to.

The Link Directory is ready to use now, every function is used to vB-standard.

Adding the widget:

Admincp -> 'vBulletin CMS' -> 'Widgets' -> 'Create new widget'

Widget type: PHP Direct Execution
Title: Link Directory
Description: Shows a random entry and statistic from vBulletin Link Directory in CMS

Then 'Save' the widget and you'll see the list with the widgets alreday available in your forum. At the right side from 'Yellow Pages' you klick 'Configure' and enter the follwing information:

'Enter Php Code, in the form "$results = "':

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

Template Name: vblinklist_widget_stats
Cache refresh time (minutes): 5

Then 'Save' the configuration. The file to include (DIR . "/vblinklist/widgets/widget_linklist_stats.php") can be found in the vBulletin-CMS folder in the ZIP-file to this product.

Now you can place the widget with the Layout Manager.

Tools:

You'll find import-scripts in the 'tools'-directory to import links from other addons if needed.

General:

Updates can easily be done by just following the explanation for installation.

This addon will be supported by me, please take care of the license.txt-file.

I've read through some of the pages, but not all 23 yet and I have to get to work. Any 3.8x versions of this great mod floating around? If not, is there another solution?

Has anyone managed to mod this so that it pulls thumbnails from a directory on the server rather than a third-party thumbnail service?

okay this is going to sound like a really dumb question but when adding a link what URL format do you use.

I tried http://www.example.com and www.example.com with both formats the red cross comes up on the right to show error.

Sorry didnt read all 23 pages id someone has asked

Well, it depends on the server function aswell on the availability of the linked site and it it allows to fetch the informations. This function is a thing to play with but has no important binding.

Quick question ....

I notice that there's no way for someone to right click to cut-n-paste the code that appears in the Link our site Sourcecode to include in your page to link our site box area.

It doesn't seem to be recognized by the mouse, which means if someone actually wanted to use the code, they'd have to write it down, then type it manually into their web site?

Can this be made to be able to be cut-n-pasted?

Thanks ..

Regards,
Doug

Yes, it can. Open the template "vblinklist_home" and search for

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

In that line you simply delete

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

and everything should be fine then. This bug is fixed in the next version also.

Thanks Vossi, once again sorry to sound so dumb but do I just ignore the red cross when typing in the URL or am I doing something wrong when trying to list a link??
