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.

IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO REMOVE OR CHANGE THE COPYRIGHT IN ANY WAYS.

Brandfree versions are available, please get in touch with me using PM for that.

Your feedback is welcome, please post bugs in this thread.

After adding my first link, I received a PM titled "Could not find phrase 'vblinklist_newentrycreated'.'"
This vblinklist_newentrycreated phrase data is missing in the product xml file. You should add it in the next upgrade.
I manually added that phrase.

I can't find out how to manually add a thumbnail without using a distant service.

Costum thumbnail service link
I am trying to use a custom thumbnail service. How can I add the parameter in this kind of link:

Something like {param} for url?

Hi,
Is this considered a new "Content Type" that is compatible with vb 4.x ?
It will be perfect if it's fully compatible and supported (not a one time development).

Thanks,,

I'm working on 1.o.1 right now and try to include your feedback into it; also take care of known bugs.

I actually didnt believe that a link directory is of any interest at all, so i kept the addon with few functions only. It has potential for new functions, so it can get developed even more.

Somebody asked if support for this will be stable: yes it will.

Could you add a new vblink permission:
"can add attachment" in usergroup permissions.
I see that even admin can't attach images.
