Direct External Links - 1.0.0a

Modification: Direct External Links
Version: 1.0.0a
Author: MarcoH64 / Marco van Herwaarden
vB Version: 3.6.8 (might work on older 3.6.x versions)

Based on request: Direct Forum Link

Please don't forget to click Install at vbulletin.org if you want to keep updated.

Description:
Standard vBulletin offers the option to create forum that is a link to an URL ("Forum URL"). This will however not be a direct link, but a redirect over forumdisplay.php.

With this modification you will have the option to replace the redirect link over forumdisplay.php with the real direct external link. This option can be set for each forum (that has the Forum URL set) individually. This will work both on ForumHome and on ForumDisplay.

1 product file
2 manual template edit.

Doesn't quite fork for me. From forumhome http://www.socaloffroading.com/ you see it's not working, but from the sub forum it is http://www.socaloffroading.com/forumdisplay.php?f=21 (the first 3 have been changed, the rest haven't)

Thank you! :D

I don't see any external links at all on your forumhome.
