vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (30 votes - 4.60 average) Installs: 464
Released: 22 Aug 2007 Last Update: 22 Aug 2007 Downloads: 2099
Not Supported Uses Plugins  


This product will automatically take any incoming parsed link and display the title of that page instead of showing the URL.

Example:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/index.php

Is how URL's are displayed by default, after adding this plugin, automatically the page title of that URL will be displayed and linked:

VBulletin.org Forum

The only thing required to install is to upload the product file (see readme in attached file).

For those asking what the difference is between this mod, and a similar one, see my post here:

http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showp...7&postcount=23

Limitations:
  • If the page has no title tag, only the URL will be displayed.
  • If the title tag does not appear within the first 1000 lines of the page, only the URL will be displayed. To keep the script from locking on URL's that go to large files or other large documents that could put a strain on the server and timeout a post, only the first 1000 lines are accepting when retrieving the page information.
  • Links on pages posted prior to adding this mod will not be updated.
Changelog:
  • Aug 22-2007: Fixed issue where functions might redeclare themselves, especially with shoutbox.
(note 49 downloads v1.0)

it does not work with a lot of urls and gives instead this error:

Network Error (tcp_error)

A communication error occurred: "Operation timed out"
The Web Server may be down, too busy, or experiencing other problems preventing it from responding to requests. You may wish to try again at a later time.

how to disable this as needed in some threads.. and make only URLs displayed?

How can I prevent it from doing this?

This is what is showing:
Guaging Intrest on Powerball Gyroscope Group Buy - Laser Enthusiast Community

This is what I want to show:
Guaging Intrest on Powerball Gyroscope Group Buy

The plugin seems to be adding the Forums Name from the VB OPTIONS in the adminCP:
"Name of your forum. This appears in the title of every page."
