[DRC] - Link Framer

Home Page:

Normally when a user clicks a link posted on your forum it opens a new window and takes the user to said site where the user my get side tracked and forget all about your site. Not no more, with [DRC] - Link Framer your visitors can now browse outbound links while staying on your site. Don't feel like you're trapping your users though, because they do have an option to leave the iFrame also.

- Frames external links
- Excludes links to your own site
- Frames links in signatures
- counts link clicks

To Come:
- Whitelist, sites to not frame
- Open links in current window. Framed or not.

If you have any other ideas don't be shy, and share your thoughts!

- initial release

updated to 1.2, this version is to start storing how many times an external link is clicked. You wont see any changes YET, this update is just preparing for the next big update so you can start storing your clicks now, and when the next update is released, you will have stats to view =)

Remember to include the code to remove the table if a user uninstalls your product. :D

sorry klaush i pulled the update, for now. I kind of rushed it, it doesn't do anything as of now anyway just starts collecting count so when the next big update is ready you will already have stats.

the release you grabbed relies on the table (which you can run this in a query to create)

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

but i forgot to add that to the install code. looking it over I'm going to rename a few things and probably append the table into another table for the final revision of 2.0

I'll try to have 1.5 done today which will include this feature, I'm just a little stuck at the moment.

Take your time! No problem!

Still news on this?

Dr.CustUmz 11 Apr 2016 15:37

1.0 should work as intended just fine for everyone, the (how many times was this linked click) feature has been put on hold for now, as I develop more products. (which will all be released at once)

nice but not support https links

Ok - this is slick!!!

I would love to see this for 4.2.2. However, my question is will this cause an issue with affiliate program links (like eBay Partner Network)

and I'd love to be able to sneak a small banner add (320x50) in there
