Introduction

Dear Friends,

After much thought I have decided to release part of my upcoming DCSEO modification to the community for free.

What does this modification do?

This modification offers you the facility to track URLs that link to threads on your forum. Instead of me trying to explain to you what a linkback actually is I'll link you to wikipedia's explanation of it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linkback

This modification implements refbacks, but not trackbacks or pingbacks (these will be included in the DCSEO modification). Any sites that the system *thinks* link to you, are put into an approval queue in the admincp which you will see in the left-hand nav after you install the mod. This moderation queue can be turned off, but I would strongly reccomend never turning it off!

The reason this will offer you a major benefit to your search engine rankings and PR (for google), is that it will create relevant inbound and outbound traffic to your forum which the search engines love.

Installation

Download the attached zip and open the readme.txt file, and follow the instructions within it.

Support

I will be around to offer support wherever possible, but please do not PM me asking for support, as I will not respond. If you have any bugs, report them in this thread and I'll fix them as soon as possible. I am rather busy at the moment with work during the day, and full-time development of the DCSEO product in the evenings, so please be patient with me if I take a little while responding to your posts.

I think i have a problem with this.

I can only disapprove one link at a time. When i check all linkbacks and tell to delete them all, just one is deleted. Just the first one.

When approving more links it works fine. Just disapproving does not work.

Any ideas? I will leave it install at the moment as it doesnt seem to make any difference to the job its supposed to do.

I'm using 3.6.4

Thanks, great idea mate
Has this been fixed yet?

Are you running the latest version? This issue was fixed a long time ago.

I can only seem to moderate 1 link at a time, if I choose more than 1 they don't get removed, also would it possible to add a "select all" option?

cool hack btw

Updated to 1.4

This is a bug fix release which fixed the bug in the admincp where you can only moderate one linkback at a time.

Regards,
- Dean (DCSEO Developer)

I have zoints SEO if that helps
It's to do with the "collate latin1_general_ci " part in the
`pageurl` varchar(250) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL,
and
`pagetitle` varchar(250) collate latin1_general_ci NOT NULL,
lines.

I had the same error on one site which is hosted on a box with an old version of MySQL. Removing the collate latin1_general_ci in teh product XML and then install allows the process to go through, but I am unsure of any side effects.

I've created a small add-on to this which will display if and how many linkbacks need to be moderated in your AdminCP main page HERE
