vB Version: 3.6.4 Rating: (8 votes - 4.25 average) Installs: 103

Not Supported Uses Plugins Template Edits Additional Files  

URL Redirect for vBulletin is a simple way to keep your users grounded to your site. All external URLs will be displayed in a frame with your logo above.

Installation is simple and fast. Simply import the product (product-igusto_urlredirect.xml) and upload the ext.php file to your main forum directory.

How is this product different from other similar products released in the past?

It is true that other people have released similar products in the past. The main differences are as follows:
  • no code changes - other vBulletin hacks required you to change core files in order to make this work properly.
  • released as a product - other vBulletin hacks were not released as a simple importable product
  • No footprint - when you uninstall this product, there are no residual footprints. This has not been the case with other versions of this utility released to vBulletin previously.
  • Will distinguisth internal and external urls - Instead of displaying internal urls with the header, this plugin will evaluate the url and determine if it is the same as the host site. If it is, no banner will be displayed.


The product consists of one template (urlredirect_page) and one plugin. The plugin will change all external urls posted in forum posts to the new ext.php file. The template (urlredirect_page) is the header that will be displayed at the top of your redirect page.

Inside of the header you will find text that looks like this:

<!--Google Ads here-->

Replace that text with your google adsense javascript, or another ad generator.

I've tested this on 3.5.7 and 3.6.4. It works fine on both systems.

if you find it not working, check the following first:
  • Ensure that the plugin named "url_redirect parser" is enabled.
  • Ensure that you uploaded the file ext.php into your forum directory

If you look 2 posts back I'm having similar issues.

Just seeing if SiMateoAko can do this, if not might have a play with the code but I'm not really in to changing mods myself.

It's ticked at the top, but I don't think it is either. Anyone care to have a go at this?

I don't think this is supported any longer, see last few posts.

Hi there, great mod, but I have a problem using external stylesheets in some of my articles. All links to these are boken, when your mod is active.

Is there a way I can avoid this? Some sort of blacklist for external URLS?

Thanks!

Curious about this as well as functionality with vbseo. Thanks for the nice modification. Will have to try it on 3.7 with vbseo and see how it goes.

Update: Did not work with vBulletin 3.7 Gold and vbseo. I'm actually thinking it's probably conflicting with vbseo more than the fact that I'm on vBulletin 3.7. Was worth the try however.

I try it on VB 3.7 and working fine , but I didn't install vbseo
So I think like you said it's probably conflicting with vbseo.
