What is vBulletin Link Directory:

vBulletin Link Directory with vBulletin integration has a couple of functions and options that a comfortable link directory needs to have:
  • Links can be moderated
  • Categories with subcategories (with images/icons/descriptions/etc)
  • Subcategories in subcategories
  • Comment-function (also moderated)
  • Uses the forum search for finding links
  • Detailed usergroup and administrator permissions
  • Uses vBseo and vBCMS
  • Facebook integration
  • Thumbnail and banner function
  • Additional pictures/icons in categories
  • Fully vB-standard kept within code
  • Additional Functions for Links/Images
  • Meta-Informations
  • Check if link exists, read linked site informations, etc
  • Google PageRank
  • Alexa Page Traffic
  • 'Link-us'-function
  • Additional style settings (fixed sizes for banners/images by stylevars)
  • Show direktlink and thumbnails while categorie view

Installation/Update:

Upload all files you find in /upload to your forum root and change
the read/write permissions of:

/vblinklist/backup
/vblinklist/image

to 0777 in order to be able to make backups if needed.

Afterwards import 'product-vblinklist.xml' in admincp. Then configure the group permissions aswell as the administrator permissions.

Now you can change the settings of the addons in admincp and create categories like you want to.

The Link Directory is ready to use now, every function is used to vB-standard.

Adding the widget:

Admincp -> 'vBulletin CMS' -> 'Widgets' -> 'Create new widget'

Widget type: PHP Direct Execution
Title: Link Directory
Description: Shows a random entry and statistic from vBulletin Link Directory in CMS

Then 'Save' the widget and you'll see the list with the widgets alreday available in your forum. At the right side from 'Yellow Pages' you klick 'Configure' and enter the follwing information:

'Enter Php Code, in the form "$results = "':

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

Template Name: vblinklist_widget_stats
Cache refresh time (minutes): 5

Then 'Save' the configuration. The file to include (DIR . "/vblinklist/widgets/widget_linklist_stats.php") can be found in the vBulletin-CMS folder in the ZIP-file to this product.

Now you can place the widget with the Layout Manager.

Tools:

You'll find import-scripts in the 'tools'-directory to import links from other addons if needed.

General:

Updates can easily be done by just following the explanation for installation.

This addon will be supported by me, please take care of the license.txt-file.

Yes, I was looking at vba link directory and I'm thinking about making the switch unless, one, the attachment issue can be resolved... I also like the other features mentioned by MelH. If these features are going to be implemented any time soon, I will hold off.

Installed, found a few issues:

1), Thumbnails showing up within an article when there's nothing set in the thumbnail.
2), Setting display order in the admincp only sets the display order within the admincp. It won't effect on the link page on the forums. Any fix for me to use right away or should I wait for the next update?

How do I remove the "thumbnail" from the page? Here's an example:


As you can see, I can barely read the thumbnail with the current theme.. Why is the thumbnail even there while there is nothing to show? There's no image what so ever.

This will be fixed in the next release, meanwhile you can simply turn this function off in the thumbnail-settings in admincp.

Thanks. I'd like to report another issue though. The "HTML" option has been set on through the admincp for the category I selected. But all HTML I am using won't work. It's just showing the html tags, but the actual html doesn't work.

PS. The "Use of thumbnail service" was already disabled. It still shows the thumbnail bar.

When a link is submitted I get the following error message:

"Could not find phrase 'nomoderatedentry"

Then I receive another error via PM "Could not find phrase 'vblinklist_newentrycreated'.

Where are the phrases or how do I add them?
