Replace URL's With Page Title

Developer Last Online: Nov 2018 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 3.6.8 Rating: (30 votes - 4.60 average) Installs: 464
Released: 22 Aug 2007 Last Update: 22 Aug 2007 Downloads: 2091
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)

If you enjoy this mod, please nominate it for mod of the month (MOTM).

Yes I have the vBSEO. But I didn't know he does the same thing.

karabaja3, you may want to go to vBSEO.com and see if there's an option to turn that off. Good luck!

Why would you want to turn it off to install an extra add-on which does the same thing? That makes little sense.

djbaxter, in his previous posts, he mentioned that he uninstalled this hack, but still showing the URL changes.

So, he's not installing the hack, but uninstalling it.

Was there ever an updated version of this mod. I have an issue with members posting links with the editor in WYSIWYG mode and the editor automatically ads [URL] tags around the link such that this mod doesn't get a chance to work.

I have just tried it on 4.2.0 but looks like is not working here. As a matter of fact if I import the XML I cannot post at all on the forum! The message I want to post stays there on hold forever.
