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 don't want to use cUrl for one or another reason, what about fsockopen()?
Also, I'd prefer not to waste resources for local URLS (eg. showthread, etc.)
Would be nice if those were detected automaticvally and the titles retrived directly rather than forking a new vBulletin instance just to get the title
That might not be a bad idea. I could definitely craft it with fsockopen. So far, nobody has reported any issue with fopen as of yet. If it becomes one, I will take your advice.

As for the local links. I see your point. If I get some time next week, I might poke around with that.

It should also be noted, that changing safe mode should not be required as with a similar hack. Many hosts require safe mode.

nice hack!
My forum ist devided in two parts: One can be seen by registered and unregistered and the other one can only be seen by registered users.
A link to a thread in the area that can only be seen by registered is not replaced correctly. It seems, that the server calls the thread as "unregistered" to find the title tag. How can I tell him, that he should look for the title as a registered user?

Hope you understand my problem!
Greetings from Germany!

The problem is that the page is not open to the public. It will only show the page title of that page. If it was to grab the page title of pages that you must be registered to view, then it would take away from security of making the thread hidden to unregistered users.

yes I understand the problem. But the unregistered users see the threadtitle anyway. They can see the forum, the threads, but they cannot read the threads.

Perhaps I do not understand the nature of the issue. Could you PM me links illustrating what you are talking about?

The mod needs to be able to see the page title tag, if it cannot, then it will not display the page title.
