VBBot Installation How-To
=========================

1. Upload vbbot.php to your root folder where your VB installation is
Note : If you had older version of the bot, delete vbbot.php (or the folder) and replace it by new one.

2. Goto your ACP and go to 'Plugins & Products' and then click on 'Manage Products'

3. In the top box eneter the location of the product-link_bot.xml file on your computer
and then click the 'Import' button.

4. You have just installed the VB Link Checker bot.

5. If you had older version of the bot, delete vbbot.php (or the folder) and replace it by new one.


Setting up and configuring your VB Link Checker
===============================================

1. Create a new user that will be used for your Link Checker Bot. Make sure the bot has
the appropriate permissions for where it will be posting. (ie, VIP/Private forums)

2. Create the forums you will be using for good and bad links if you have not done so already.

3. Goto vBulletin Opions and select the MaxWCoders LinkChecker Bot.

4. All the options/setting are pretty self explanatory and each option has the description
of what the setting are for and do. Refer the the bottow of this Read Me of finding the
correct IDs you will need if you are not sure where to look.

5. Once you have everything set up hit the save button at the bottom.


Security
========
1. For security reasons, it is highly recommended you rename your bot to something else for instance 63454.php

Running your Link Checker Bot
=============================

1. You can run the bot by setting up a Cron job to run at a set time so you will not have to
run it manually. This can be found in your cPannel of your server.

2. You can call it manually by running vbbot.php (ie. http://www.siteurl.com/vbbot.php)

How to find all of your needed IDs.
===================================

How to find your forum ID:
Just goto the forum in question and the URL will look like the one below.

http://www.yourwebsite.com/forumdisplay.php?f=18 <--- The number at the end of the URL
will be the forum ID. In this example
it is 18.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

How to find your user ID
Find the user that is going to be your bot and click on the user name.
Now look at the URL in the address bar. It should look something like the one below

http://www.yourwebsite.com/member.php?u=2 <--- The number at the end of the URL will be
the user ID. In this example the user ID
is 2.

Changelog:
1.0 - 1.1 -> Bug fixes and Product installer

Bugs:

Unfortunately due to time constraints due to exams, I am not able to find the bug fix for the PM bug. Whenever bot tries to PM a certain member with PM disabled, or something similar, it returns a big error. So far only fix for it is, disable PM for that topic and run it again. Maybe after my exams, I can have a better look. Other than that, the new version is just fine

Well vietdjclub you cannot say you reduced the queries all you are doing is using vb api (which will also use queries maybe more or maybe less... ) Nevertheless you did a good job adding an acp which many people wanted. Well the method to check i never understood what were you changing.
@iPodHacking : We have never forced you to use this bot and we recommend you dont use this bot otherwise it will cause problems on your board. Problems? Just because you dont know how to edit simple php/read the readme this bot has problems? wow. Again, we recommend you dont use the next versions too. Thank You.

Not to be rude, but Dman is correct. We had posted the bot here, and it was u who came here and installed the bot. We never told you that you have to do it. So if u don't like it uninstall it and move out of here. Thats all I can say.

Yeah it may be having problems, since its our first go at a vBulletin modification and it can be solved only from user feedback.

It was my friend who posted the first time. I'm the owner of WarezVB. Our bot supports Rapidshare, Mediafire, Megaupload, Netload, File Factory and Easy-Share. It scans the first post of every thread. If it finds a dead links sends the thread to the Graveyard and sends a PM to the user telling him to update his links (it actually tells him what link was dead). You can also set the number of threads to check per run (it runs via cron job). I don't plan on releasing mine.



Well I hope you'll get all the bugs worked out... I would definitively use it, if I didn't have my Dead Link Checker bot.

Our does the same except for the threads to run and no ACP atm... (getting worked soon) and the the links which are dead (Which i think is unnecessary use of resources and users can check it themselves. It may not matter in small boards but in big boards it really does.) and it works great with a cronjob and yeah there are no bugs as far as i know. Your friend doesnt know how to edit php files that is why he thinks the mod is buggy

OK i decided to have another go at this file. I have been able to work out most of the errors i was getting based on feedback.

but i am still getting this last error and i have no clue why.I have done all the SQL queries and stuff.

I was curious as to this error:
Fatal error: Call to undefined function curl_init() in /home/forum/public_html/vbbot.php on line 64
i take it this means curl is not installed?

Thanks

just add ?deletefile to the end of the bot.php file

(ie. http://www.yoursite.com/vbbot.php?deletefile)

The .txt file will be deleted. Now just run the bot file again and it will restart.

See the authors website which is in the installation file included with the mod.


Hscorp , did you add the mysql tables like the author said to do?
