    eva2000,

    Each time you upgrade your forum software, you need to re-install the links installation script and run the script all over again. I've had to do this each time I upgraded my forums and just did it last night. Good luck.

        I changed the templates and made them "Custom Templates".
        Now when I upgrade VB there is no need to redo everything, apart from the admin part.

        I've also made a few other changes that make it more in keeping with the feel of VB itself.

        The category select auto jumps, and remembers where you have jumped to. (code taked from VB itself)

        Also made the buttons the default "Go" ones from VB.

        Added a "New Link" button

        Changed the tables to look more VB like.

        You can have a look at http://www.ckcsforums.com/links.php

        If any of you want the changes needed for the Auto Jump/Remember here it is:

        about line 81 find:

        PHP Code:
        //################### Kategorien < ################### 
        $links_categorys $DB_site->query("SELECT vb_links_category.* FROM vb_links_category ORDER by sortorder");
            
        while (
        $link_category $DB_site->fetch_array($links_categorys))
            {

                
            eval(
        "\$links_category .= \"".gettemplate("links_category")."\";");
            } 
        replace with:

        PHP Code:
        //################### Kategorien < ################### 
        $links_categorys $DB_site->query("SELECT vb_links_category.* FROM vb_links_category ORDER by sortorder");
            
        while (
        $link_category $DB_site->fetch_array($links_categorys))
            {
             if (
        $link_category[id]==$category) {
                
        $optionselected='selected';
            } else {
                
        $optionselected='';
            }    
            eval(
        "\$links_category .= \"".gettemplate("links_category")."\";");
            } 
        change the "links_category" template to:

        Code:
        <option value="$link_category[id]" $optionselected>$link_category[name]</option>
        change the following in the "links template"

        Code:
        <select name="category">
        to:

        Code:
        <select name="category" onchange="window.location=('links.php?funktion=bereich&category='+this.options[this.selectedIndex].value)">
        enjoy!

          Nice changes Delhaze.

          Has anyone thought about adding the ability to run the categories through the forum permissions settings so certain categories could be private?

            I still would love to see:
            • auto email to webmaster of new site
            • newest link to be featured at the top
            • maybe a CP add on where admin can add suitable images for link back and it creates auto URL and alt text


            need to get good at PHP !
            Talking loud but aint saying nothing.

              Isn't there someone who'd like to take over the project from Sisko. Because it's clear that he hasn't had the time to work on a new version. It's clear that it still needs a lot of work. For example the admin function. It's very hard to find links because there is no sort order and I'd like a function to see if there are duplicate links.

              This is one of the best hacks for vBulletin..!

                I must a apology myself, but I realy don't have the time.
                If there is someone who likes to go on with the hack, can do so.
                And I will do my best to get in contact with this person, if there is any question about my code.

                      Bugs + Suggestions

                      Running 2.0.3 and here are a few bugs (ADMIN FUNCTIONS):

                      When editing a link, the: "To upload a banner click here" or "Banner 1" link does not provide the pop-up to upload.
                      Suggestions:

                      The URL of the site awaiting approval needs to be hot linked to the corresponding site.

                      Banner needs displayed if it was uploaded.

                      A file size restriction needs added.

                      Still unsure why that "Forums Link" field is in there...

                              First install.

                              A few suggestions as well:

                              The links on the main page, could this be set to look sorta like yahoo? ie.

                              Toys
                              * Star Wars (25)
                              * GI Joe (4)

                              Trading Cards
                              * Poke Mon (2)
                              * Star Wars (5)

                              get it? The current way has ALL the links on the main page with banners. Not sure if it cuts off and goes to another page and even so, it would look even better going with my suggestion.

                                My prob. is different; I can't continue with install hack 'couse install_vblinks.php loops around my username and pwd. In other words, in can read only this page:
                                vB Links (version 1.0)

                                This script will help you to install the vB Links hack.
                                It will tell you what changes you need to make to your vBulletin and insert the necessary templates
                                and create the necessary new tables for the vB Links hack to work.



                                Do you want to continue?
                                and the Install button. When I click Install , my username & pwd are required. When I re-input what asked, I've again first one page as quoted above.

                                One more thing; just finished installing stars hack with the same method (install_****.php), so cannot be cookies.
                                Help pleeease.
                                Sorry for bothering u but this is a very important hack for me.

                                Thx again.
