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.

I have a question as to why when I submit a link it opens up the link? Is there a way to disable that feature? I'd like it to go back to links.php if possible. Also is there a clean way to make the links page show up in the index.php so it look like a forum until you go into it or do you just have to link to the page?

This hack would be nicely incorporated into this links hack.

papa - I will add it as an option soon. Search the template forums for information on creating a forum that is actually a link.
BlackJack - Thanks for the heads-up. I wasn't sure how I was going to accomplish the link checking.

Thanks for the update, but how in earth do i delete links?
I tried visible to invisible, but no luck sofar. Do i really need to use phpmyadmin to delete some links?

Nevertheless a very cool hack!

No, you have a new checkbox (delete) in "edit links"!

Addon: Link Checking

This nifty little addon will display "down" next to a link title if it is not working.

Credit goes to Slynderdale, he did all the hard work.

So, open links.php and find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Still in links.php, find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

After this, add:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Now save and upload links.php. For the next step go into your admin cp and edit template "links_listbit". Find:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Replace it with:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

Voila! If you want to test it, just enter a fictitious link with an obviously defunct URL. The word "down" should appear next to the link.

This may not work with some server configurations. If it doesn't, contact your web hosting company.

I just have one small problem, the time on the main links folder page doesn't seem to update when a link is submitted?

Btw: I have modified the links page alot, i also removed the rating stuff column, because that causes to many pop-ups and it disturbes viewing the submitted site.

Take a look if you want, on how it looks and works on my site:

Make sure you're upped to 0.1.4. If you followed the instructions, there should be a link "Update Folders" in your left frame. Click that when you delete or move a link (unless it's old anyway) and the main links page will have the correct information.

Thanks for the compliments guys!
Although my knowledge on PHP is very slim :-)

But back to my problem, i still can't figure out what i did wrong, i checked every template and php file, and also made sure that i updated the folders in admin links.php, but nevertheless the problem still remains. What could i have overlooked?

The example URL at:
http://www.in-here.co.uk/forum/links.php?s=
(i took the liberty to add a test link there, sorry for that)
Seems to have the same problem. The latesttime on the main link folder page doesn't seem to update, however the date works fine i guess.

Besides from this this small problem, i think this hack is great!
Wouldn't it be even nicer if members from the board could comment it, just as if the link was a discussion topic? Well, i am just thinking out load
