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.

IT IS NOT ALLOWED TO REMOVE OR CHANGE THE COPYRIGHT IN ANY WAYS.

Hi, brilliant mod!! Looks I am a little blind, how can I set new link entries to be moderated first before displaying? Comments work, but links go "live" without moderation and I don't find an according setting. Thanks!

Will use this link directory to replace our F.A.Q and other stuff. But I shall wait for the new version though!

Also, any way these link directories can have a SEO URL? Using the URL of the entries?

Great work, thank you. Right now I'm testing the new version 1.o.1 which will be a bugfix version and it come just in good time. I'm about to release 1.o.1 quite shortly.

Thanks for the heads up ...

I was just going to install the older version on our v4.04pl1, but I'll wait for v1.0.1 ...

Do you you take donations for brand free versions? Is that how it works?

Regards,
Doug

This is a great mod.. Thanks for your work..

I am trying to use the artviper thumbnail service but I see no security token anywhere..All I have gotten through email has been a userid..

Does anyone have this working using artviper??

Nevermind--I believe the security token is only needed if you have paid for the premium service through artviper..It is working now though the thumbnail is very small and blurry..I think I have to try some other services..

Thanks,
Richie

There has been an update of vBulletin Link-Directory. Bugs have been fixed as far as known by now, also there are a couple of new functions which can be found in each settings in admincp or the category configuration.

*damn*

I forgot to correct the phrase...

Either you add them by you own or you just wait untill 1.0.3 gets released with a 'medical clean-up'
