Introduction

Dear Friends,

After much thought I have decided to release part of my upcoming DCSEO modification to the community for free.

What does this modification do?

This modification offers you the facility to track URLs that link to threads on your forum. Instead of me trying to explain to you what a linkback actually is I'll link you to wikipedia's explanation of it: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Linkback

This modification implements refbacks, but not trackbacks or pingbacks (these will be included in the DCSEO modification). Any sites that the system *thinks* link to you, are put into an approval queue in the admincp which you will see in the left-hand nav after you install the mod. This moderation queue can be turned off, but I would strongly reccomend never turning it off!

The reason this will offer you a major benefit to your search engine rankings and PR (for google), is that it will create relevant inbound and outbound traffic to your forum which the search engines love.

Installation

Download the attached zip and open the readme.txt file, and follow the instructions within it.

Support

I will be around to offer support wherever possible, but please do not PM me asking for support, as I will not respond. If you have any bugs, report them in this thread and I'll fix them as soon as possible. I am rather busy at the moment with work during the day, and full-time development of the DCSEO product in the evenings, so please be patient with me if I take a little while responding to your posts.

Have you installed vBSEO before by any chance? Also, can you show me the structure of your linkback table, and tell me what fields it has, and some sample data?

Here you go ..

After having a look in the db I can see why there is more than one entry coming into the mod queue .. however that isn't explaining the extra empty rows in the linkback table at the bottom of the page ..

Perhaps it's getting confused due to the similarity of the URL?

Hmmm, this may present a problem with dynamic URLs. There's nothing I can really do about it other than fix the empty lines appearing.

Well I have no idea what that table is and why it's there. What other mods have you installed in the past, or do you have running at the moment?

Beware of just dropping tables. That may be in use by something else you are using!

Oh .. an idea btw ..

Instead of having the mod queue in the AdminCP .. how about having the option of having the, yet to be moderated links, to show up in the linkback table on the page itself. Of course only usergroups that have the permission to see them would be able to ok/decline the link. This would enable you to 1/ See if the link is already in the list .. and 2/ Enable forum moderators to ok links and not just the admin.

Of course, on very large boards, admin might prefer to do the job themselves, so you would still have the option of doing it from the AdminCP .. but perhaps you need to show them if there is a similar link already listed, perhaps from the same domain?

That isn't really feasible as the links would only ever be moderated when you view a thread. So say for example you had a thread no-one has posted to for a year, but someone linked to it, you'd never realise there was a refback waiting to be moderated.

Which is why I suggested having both ways of doing it .. from the thread and the admincp ..

Just a thought anyway
