vB Link System - integrated, categorized link directory with extras...
Mod Version: 1.00, by N!ck (Member) N!ck is offline
Developer Last Online: Oct 2008 I like it Show Printable Version Email this Page

This modification is in the archives.
vB Version: 2.2.x Rating: (0 vote - 0 average) Installs: 32
Released: 21 Feb 2003 Last Update: Never Downloads: 2
Not Supported Is in Beta Stage  

Just a note, this will work with 2.2.x-2.3.0, that option is just unavailable.

vB Link System
Current version: 0.1.5

This will add a links directory to your vBulletin. Features include:
  1. Seamless integration with vBulletin
  2. Unlimited folders/categories (only one level right now, sorry)
  3. New link indicator for each folder on main page
  4. Link ratings (and who rated a given link)
  5. Admin-defined SponsorLinks appear at the top
  6. Option to set # of links per page
  7. Option to moderate new links
  8. Powerful administration script

This is fairly stable, but I put it in the beta hacks forum because it's really not finished yet. It has all the main functions, but I have plans for additions and changes in the future. Of course, I will provide upgrade scripts if necessary, so it's perfectly fine if you install it now.

See following posts for screenshots. I think you'll like what you see.

  • Sort by (admin feature ?) popularity , alphabeticly
  • hidden referer codes (for sponsered links)
  • Link validation (auto?)

I agree on a lot of that stuff. What I think you can definitely expect:
-Sort By... (I was thinking like at the bottom of forumdisplay though)
-Hot links
-Option to disable ratings altogether

What you *might* be able to expect (if I get help from people who actually know what they're doing ):
-Subfolders (beyond me...)
-Comments

As for referral codes, those can be put in by editing the link URL, so I'm not sure I really see the point...

Anyway, I'm working on it. If anyone wants to help out with the subfolders I'd appreciate it. Keep in mind though, I want to keep the queries down, so we can't do it the easy way.

Nice sponser icon lol :-)

I have noticed a slight bug however,
when moving a link to another directory , the directory doesnt show the true amount of links & the directory it was moved from doesnt show the true amount either.

No other bugs found though :-)

Installed and works great!!
But like Vampire Man said, the linkscounter are not updating after moving. And what about deleting a link?? Is this only possible in PhpMyAdmin?

Thanks Nick!!

i'll get right on that. to delete a link...oh, i guess i forgot that... all i've included so far is deleting links before they are made visible... i'll be sure and add that to the next release. thanks for trying it out.

Is there any notification when a link has been submitted?

How about an option for people to request catagories?

Thanks, great hack.

Hi after installing your latest version, i have created folders in the admin cp. but whenever i try to access that folder in the forum, i got a mysql error:
---------------------
Database error in vBulletin 2.2.7:

Invalid SQL: SELECT COUNT(*) AS count FROM link WHERE folderid='1' ORDER BY sponsor DESC, points/voters DESC, title LIMIT 0,
mysql error: You have an error in your SQL syntax near '' at line 1

mysql error number: 1064

Date: Tuesday 25th of February 2003 10:29:36 AM
Script: http://www.housequake.com/forum/foru...der&folderid=1
Referer: http://www.housequake.com/forum/links.php
---------------------

I guess the /forum/forum/ path seems wrong, but i don't know where to change that. Any clues?

Thanks!

Somehow it works now, i choose save changes in the admin cp, where it says links per page. I guess the changes weren't set in the first place?
Nevertheless it seems to work now, clicks install!

i'll be sure and add the notification and category request options into one of the next couple of releases. expect 0.1.4 by the weekend; it will fix the link counts thing and perhaps at least have the notification feature

thanks for the suggestions.
