It seems you can administer it from the edit permissions link under Member Controls in the smf admin.

Mine installed ok but when I went to add a catagory I got this message and can no longer access the links page 

Here is the error message

Quote
Fatal error: Call to undefined function: parse_bbc() in /home/mckinl3/public_html/burgerfamily/forum/Sources/Load.php(1046) : eval()'d code on line 42

Any ideas?  I'm running smf 1.0.7

Only thing in the admin panel is the permissions which are located on the permissions page.

Everything else is added via the main links page which you can access via yourforumaddress.com/index.php?act=links   or click on the links button or text if you use default theme.

A really nice mod - just what I was looking for  :D  A "nice if" for the future would be subcategories.

BBC code only works for categories. I didn't add it to links since it could be abused.

tried using above and does not work either.  seems to take the the trailing bracket and change it to an &.  ie my post looks like this when I'm done.
<img src="image url"&

I made sure basic html was enabled and still same thing.

Any other suggestions?

ah ok I see.  Still great mod.

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on July 12, 2006, 04:35:15 PM
I will add option though in next release to include an image next to a link or a picture of your site.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: cb49747 on July 12, 2006, 04:44:51 PM
THis is a very cool mod.

Some suggestions for the future

allow bbc code for links as well

allow the creation of sub cat.

Great job though.

cool mod but think you took the repeating copyright code a bit too far, I counted 8 of them.

I found them all and happily deleted them  :P  I think its ok to add copyrights and all but it should be up to the site owners where they want to list them.  As long as they get listed that's all that matters

I think this is against his ToS, if you dont like dont use.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Bigguy on July 12, 2006, 07:00:51 PM
Yeah, I really think that those copyrights should go back were they were. There not there for you to remove there there for a reason. I don`t think it matters how many times there there. Like ArkServer said "If you don`t like don`t use"

Well i don't think its that bad one link on a page. One three pages most people would see.

I am trying out free mods for now and see how it works later on I may make the bigger mods paid and see how that goes.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: bugsmi0 on July 13, 2006, 02:46:42 AM
one is ok but when they are repeated throughout the code it just gets annoying to see it that's all i'm saying,
perhaps another way to look at it is if they are so paranoid about copyright then they shouldn't make it GNL go make it commercial and see if somone will buy it.  It's not like someone else couldn't have created the mod i'm going to copyright my arse that way nobody can steal it  :P
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Gobo on July 13, 2006, 06:26:24 PM
great mod just what i was waiting for :D

some suggestions for future relaeses:

- Sub categories creation option

- Option to specify banner for each site (can be enabled - disabled via admin panel)

- Option to have a category image (like icons for categories)

thats all i can think of for now

---

im gona try and play around with the template to see how personalized I can make it...havent even touched it yet so some pointers would be helpful for:

- adding category icons manually to template

thanks :)
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: cb49747 on July 13, 2006, 08:19:11 PM
I agree with the banners, that is what I was attempting with the whole image thing.

Post by: bugsmi0 on July 14, 2006, 01:47:24 PM
curious about something, it seems more and that a forum can include most items that would normally exist on a webiste, how far does one go on a forum, take the links mod for example, usually links are on the site itself but now if you use it on the forums instead that changes things a bit, soon there will not be much left to put at site and forums would replace the site, is that the end goal  to have the forums replace the site content ?

The end goal for mods really is to either to do away with multiple pieces of software. Such as a link directory script, an  arcade script etc.
With the SMF Mods they are tied all together and allow the users to interact better.

Can the admin not add a link themselves?

**Edit** Thanks for the PM vbgamer.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on July 15, 2006, 12:41:04 PM
An admin by default has rights. First you need to create a category. Then click on category title then under that categroy click add link.

how i make to work whit the elios theme?

Post by: Mario472 on July 19, 2006, 02:33:14 PM
Well, must be great... I tried to install it, and use it with the Standard or the Babylon Theme (both certainly with using the english Version of SMF) but by clicking on 'Links' in the above Menu the following Message appeared: 'Unable to load the main template'.

Now I uninstalled it and I will wait, if here will come a Solution for this Problem. I'm using SMF 1.1 RC2.

I'm very sorry, but I wrote this also in the Reviews... Maybe someone can delete this from there.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on July 19, 2006, 02:35:03 PM
You need to make sure that links.template.php is the theme's folder and that links.php is in the sources folder.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Mario472 on July 19, 2006, 02:48:34 PM
Thank you for this really fast help. Now I made sure that links.temlate.php is in the Themes Folder and that Links.php is in the Sources Folder - but the Message by Clicking on Links or the Button stys the Same... :( Unable to load the Main Template
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Mario472 on July 19, 2006, 02:58:43 PM
Ok, I figured it out - The default Theme Folder didin't have the right permissions, now it works! THX
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: tthmaz on July 19, 2006, 03:25:12 PM
Nice work!

I'm sure some of you maybe thinking of an extra feature:

Reciprocal links.

That is, make sure that the link submitter add a link back to the directory. This way, it's more of a fair trade, they gain link exposure and so do we. I'm sure vbgamer45 thought of this b4...  :)
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on July 19, 2006, 08:43:14 PM
Minor next version released

Doesn't look like it installed. Make sure all your files are writable.
It should add a links button to the default theme and you can access it via index.php?action=links

Ok.. So tell me if I did anything wrong.

I downloaded the link (not unzip, just as it is) loaded up in the forum where the

It is a permission problem. You need to chmod all the files for smf on a linux host to 777. Which will allow the package manager to alter files and then install mods.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: kittykatt on August 17, 2006, 08:39:25 AM

they are not there.. so do I need to do that by hand?

Do I unzip it and load them by ftp and alll by hand?
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on August 17, 2006, 08:47:29 AM
I woudln't do that first that's a little harder. If you have cpanel as a control panel goto the folder that contains SMF and make sure it is set to 777
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: kittykatt on August 17, 2006, 08:51:35 AM
No I dont... I only have ftp, the Cpanel is not meant for the, the only thing that is in my cpanel is for the emails and other things, but no folders.

I did manage the ftp in there. but it says this.

An Error Has Occurred!

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: paulyoung76 on August 17, 2006, 11:25:06 PM
is it possible that change the link button name to chinese then the button can be press? the problem is i can point to /index.php?action=link then i can add links but the button can't click so no one can view the links. can we change it?

Maybe just it would take a lot of lookups if the pr is lookedup each page view unless pr is just stored when the named is entered into the database.

I figured it out but just to make sure that I won't affect anything else.  I changed the number value for the description in the MySQL database to a large number.  Is that the proper way to do it or will it have some negative affects soemwhere else form doing it that way?

Hello. I have done some modifications to this mod, so now the people who runs spanish_es language pack, can use this mod. I have translated too all the stuff so all the words are now in spanish language.

I hope you like it.

Best Regards.

Hi.

Nice mod. I've fixed all the hardcoded english phrases to german, but Umlaute (äöüß) within the title or description wont work (displaying trash, äöü = äöü).

imho this ist a displaying problem and the Links.template.php needs to be fixed (the database "output" needs to be converted or something like that)

Can anyone please help?

I'm running RC3 german (german, NOT german-utf8)

I plan on updating this mod once I get some time and will change to language files.
As for database output I am not sure can you find out what it is causing that? and how to fix it.

hi vbGamer

I was reading the code for the Links Template in the hopes of "redesigning" the template and I noticed that you have used the copyright notice in full in many places.

I just wanted to make a recommendation that you could store the whole copyright code in a variable like this:

Code: [Select]
$linkscopyright = //Copryright keep it please. Helps support the mod making for SMF
<br /><div align="center"><a href="http://www.smfhacks.com" target="blank">SMF Links</a>';

and then u could easily out put it wherever you wanted by simply calling the variable $linkscopyright

I dont know veyr much PHP but I have seen this being done in many of Bloc's themes where he calls a whole block of code using variables and so it reduces the code and thus also the file size - Just a suggestion, hope u dont mind me giving it :)

------------------------------------------------

Also could it be possible to have different template styles for this mod please?

I've been trying and reading the code but I keep getting lost lol and end up doing something wrong. But I will keep trying, hope u will also consider the template styles suggestion, since it will GREATLY enhance this mod in my opinion

Post by: vbgamer45 on October 16, 2006, 05:06:10 PM
The reason I didn't put the copyright in one location is that I did not want it to be easly removed.

I plan on changing the main look of the links system in the next release.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Gobo on October 16, 2006, 06:25:43 PM
Thanks - looking forward to that one :D

I've managed to redesign a small aspect of the template for my forum:
http://path-to-peace.net/forum/index.php?action=links

it picks up the icons by cat number all i did wa change the table layout and define an image tag for each cat. The code I used was this:

Code: [Select]
echo '<b>Categories:</b><br />';
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($dbresult))
{
  $dbresult2 = db_query("SELECT title FROM {$db_prefix}links WHERE ID_CAT = ". $row['ID_CAT'] . ' AND approved = 1', __FILE__, __LINE__);
$totallinks = db_affected_rows();
if(function_exists('parse_bbc'))
{
echo '<table border="1" width="100%" id="table1" style="border-collapse: collapse">
<tr>
<td rowspan="2"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '"><img src="http://yoursite.com/links_images/' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '.gif" border=0></a></td>
<td><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '">' . parse_bbc($row['title']) . '</a></td>
<td>Sites: ' . $totallinks . '</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="2">' . nl2br(parse_bbc($row['description'])) . '</td>
</tr>
</table>';
}
else
{
echo '<table border="1" width="100%" id="table1" style="border-collapse: collapse">
<tr>
<td rowspan="2"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '"><img src="http://yoursite.com/links_images/' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '.gif" border=0></a></td>
<td><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '">' . parse_bbc($row['title']) . '</a></td>
<td>Sites: ' . $totallinks . '</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td colspan="2">' . nl2br(parse_bbc($row['description'])) . '</td>
</tr>
</table>';

}

The part which needs to be changed for people who want to use this will be: yoursite.com/links_images/

make a folder called links_images and inside it place the gifs according to link category numbers like 1.gif, 2.gif 3.gif, etc etc - they will automatically appear in front of the related category.

The above code must be plased instead of this: (i.e. find this and replace with above code)

Code: [Select]
echo '<b>Categories:</b><br />';
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($dbresult))
{
  $dbresult2 = db_query("SELECT title FROM {$db_prefix}links WHERE ID_CAT = ". $row['ID_CAT'] . ' AND approved = 1', __FILE__, __LINE__);
$totallinks = db_affected_rows();
if(function_exists('parse_bbc'))
{
echo '<div class="tborder" style="margin: 2%;"><div class="catbg2"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '">' . parse_bbc($row['title']) . '</a> - Total Links: ' . $totallinks . '</div>';

echo '<div class="windowbg2">' . nl2br(parse_bbc($row['description'])) . '<br />';
}
else
{
echo '<div class="tborder" style="margin: 2%;"><div class="catbg2"><a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $row['ID_CAT'] . '">' . doUBBC($row['title']) . '</a> - Total Links: ' . $totallinks . '</div>';

echo '<div class="windowbg2">' . nl2br(doUBBC($row['description'])) . '<br />';

}

The table layout can be changed to suit your need - but the user will need to have basic html knowledge to make the change :)

PS: I am going to try and echo out a 2 column layout - but I dont know how yet - i know i have to include a "for each" loop in there somewhere but I dont know how yet. So if u have an idea please let me know

Great mod. Just what I was looking for. Found it right before I tried to integrate php link directory and smf.

I was wondering if future additions might have link sorting (alpha, ratings, desc , asc)

also I am sure some sort of page rank feature might be cool

thanks for you time

Hi !

I just need a small explanation on the mod..
Is this like a link exchange ? Or just a one way link ?
I mean does the user have to link back to my forum on his site ? That would be cool to boost your search engine position..

Even if it's a one way link, i'm still going to install the mod :)
Title: Re: SMF Links

Do we have a time scale on when when a sub catagories feature will be added - I kind of need it for my project.

If this is still some time off, does anyone know of any similar mods / add ons which would do the job of a links directory (sub catagories, reciprocal links, list in multiple catagories, automatic email when link submitted etc...)

Thanks

You need to install the database tables manually. I would open up linksql.php and process the sql statements.
Then delete all the information inside linksql.php between<?php and ?> and then install the mod from there.

Coded a quick TinyPortal / SSI function you can use

function ssi_links_recent()
{
global $scripturl,$db_prefix;

$dbresult = db_query("SELECT l.ID_LINK, l.rating, l.title,l.date, l.ID_MEMBER, l.description,l.hits FROM {$db_prefix}links AS l WHERE l.approved = 1 ORDER BY l.ID_LINK DESC LIMIT 5", __FILE__, __LINE__);
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($dbresult))
{

echo '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;sa=visit;id=' . $row['ID_LINK'] . '" target="blank">' . $row['title'] . '</a><br />';

echo '<br />';
echo '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;sa=addlink">Add Link</a>';

Thanks for the update. It works well on 1.1

However

I believe for this mod to really work, it's needs implimentation of a couple of my previous suggestions.

1) Links in each catagory are displayed alphabetically, NOT in order of addition.

2) It needs subcatagories

3) (Possibly personal but) I think the font used is too large. It needs to be smaller to display more info/links on a page.

Cheers,

Hmm I'm getting this for the latest file (as of this post)..

Code: [Select]
Database Error

Incorrect table name ''
File: /home/gamesho2/public_html/boards/linksql.php
Line: 16

When running linksql.php.
I added this to the top btw, so it will run individually:
Code: [Select]
if (file_exists(dirname(__FILE__) . '/SSI.php') && !defined('SMF'))
require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . '/SSI.php');
(I didn't bother adding the elseif... die part since I have it in the right place.)

I'm installing manually, the DB part is the last thing I need to do ^^


Thanks!!!

UPDATE:
Nev mind, I found the prob.
I removed all instances of the left quote ( ` ) between table names and column names and worked fine ^_^


UPDATE2:
The Alexa and Google Page Rankings are not working, or maybe are not fetching the data from their respective sites.

Question:

This is the correct way of executing an update right?
Code: [Select]
(if dropped) -> ALTER TABLE `SMF_links` ADD `image` TINYTEXT AFTER `url` ;

Or
Code: [Select]
ALTER TABLE `gsc_links` CHANGE `image` `image` TINYTEXT ;


Coz I downloaded an updated file and checked for diffs, and found 1 diff under the SQL-installer of your mod.

OLD FILE:
Code: [Select]
`image` VARCHAR(255) NOT NULL,

NEW FILE:
Code: [Select]
`image` tinytext,

I tried to run the new file, but it didn't change that image column of table links, so I'm curious if I did the update correctly, coz now it changed to tinytext NULL (very limited know-how about mySQL currently)..

Thanks!!

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on December 21, 2006, 12:38:17 AM
The image column is not really needeed yet. tinytext is about the same length as the varchar setting. So nothing to worry about.

One more ^_^
I can't find this part:
Code: [Select]
<file name="$themedir/index.template.php" error="ignore">
<operation>
<search position="before"><![CDATA[$current_action = 'admin';
if (in_array($context['current_action'], array(]]></search>
<add><![CDATA['links',]]></add>
</operation>

For the themes using the old format like:  babylon, classic, helios_multi, and leviathan.
I am assuming that it's alright to skip that part?

I found this in all themes however:
Code: [Select]
<operation>
<search position="before"><![CDATA[// the [member] list button

I have a question...

I just updated to 1.1.1 and I am using the default theme brown.

I installed the links theme and I can create categories and manage permissions...

However, the button on the navigation bar does not show. It does on the default core though...

How can I make the button show on the theme I am using?

Note: I need a detailed explanation...like smf for dummies...LOL

I have installed this great mod and apply the codes above to my themed SMF. The link button appears on my forum but is tiny with some background image. I want it to be in normal size and without the background image. How can I do that?

Sorry, I am not familiar with codings...  :-X

Many thanks for the help!  :D

I have set the permission to allow guest to view the LINKS but still cannot see. I log in as regular member also still cannot see. Only login as administrator then only can see... :(

My forum is at:

http://pentaxworld.com/forum/index.php

I am using SlickPro: Graphite theme.

This is my index.template.php codes (clean before I add the link mod)

Code: [Select]
<?php

// Version: 1.1; index



/* This template is, perhaps, the most important template in the theme. It

contains the main template layer that displays the header and footer of

the forum, namely with main_above and main_below. It also contains the

menu sub template, which appropriately displays the menu; the init sub

template, which is there to set the theme up; (init can be missing.) and

the linktree sub template, which sorts out the link tree.



The init sub template should load any data and set any hardcoded options.



The main_above sub template is what is shown above the main content, and

should contain anything that should be shown up there.



The main_below sub template, conversely, is shown after the main content.

It should probably contain the copyright statement and some other things.



The linktree sub template should display the link tree, using the data

in the $context['linktree'] variable.



The menu sub template should display all the relevant buttons the user

wants and or needs.



For more information on the templating system, please see the site at:

http://www.simplemachines.org/

contains the main template layer that displays the header and footer of

the forum, namely with main_above and main_below. It also contains the

menu sub template, which appropriately displays the menu; the init sub

template, which is there to set the theme up; (init can be missing.) and

the linktree sub template, which sorts out the link tree.



The init sub template should load any data and set any hardcoded options.



The main_above sub template is what is shown above the main content, and

should contain anything that should be shown up there.



The main_below sub template, conversely, is shown after the main content.

It should probably contain the copyright statement and some other things.



The linktree sub template should display the link tree, using the data

in the $context['linktree'] variable.



The menu sub template should display all the relevant buttons the user

wants and or needs.

Many thanks to akulion! :)

However I have another problem. I can't see the Link when login as regular member. I can only see the Link when I login as Admin.

I have set Manage Categories ->    [Permissions] -> Add Pemissions for all user groups.

What else do I need to set?
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Gobo on January 03, 2007, 03:06:13 AM
check in admin panel

Members ---> Permissions

in that for each member group click 'modify'
and enable the permissions for them to be able to see the links and add links etc to it

No you do not need to edit the code for that.
Width there is no size limits. Just upload an image that is of good size so it looks good.

i mean to ask that if you use the the link directory like PHPlinkdirectory. You have the categories dump, so you dont have to manually feed the all the categories and subcategories.

I've searched but can not find ...

I installed and it works wonderfully on the SMF Default theme.  I'm trying to use it on another theeme but the links do nor show up.

To apply to an alternate theme, does this have to be done manually?

I've tried several different ways but it never shows up.  I must be overlooking the obvious,  Anyone want to let me in on how to do this?

Thanks

You want the links button or tab to appear on your theme?
You will need to edit index.template.php of the theme that you are using.

   // the [contact] button

OK yeah, I'm now 99% sure you're missing a graphic.  As I said in PM:
My initial guess was right.  You're using a nonstandard theme, you need to create a graphic for the button.  The standard theme doesn't use graphics, it creates the buttons in HTML.  Hence the problem.

Post by: tsmalmbe on March 09, 2007, 06:08:41 AM
First: thanks for your effoerts, this is a great mod.

Now, I am missing a few things though. Willing to do the stuff myself, but of course I need a few pointers.

Issue 1: I have categories -> subcategories -> subsubcategories. WHen I view the initial links-page, I see a list of categories and a count of links inside those categories. Now, all my links are either in the subcategories or the subsubcategories. Now all my users are thinking that the linksystem is totelly empty, because the inital page shows 0 links. This is probably just a change in an SQL-query, right? What file, and where should I start looking at this?

Issue 2: The navigation path is not working. I expect it to look like:
Links>>category>>subcategory>>subsubcategory
but now it looks like
Links>>subsubcategory (when I'm in a subsubcategory). Where is this generated, and what would your suggestion be to fix this?

Of course we can also make a deal: if you fix this for me, I can offer you swedish translation - BUT, I'm willing to do the coding myself also for these issues, as long as you provide some commentary first.

OKey dokey lets see. I have added the latest version of SMF links to my forum. I am currently running SMF 1.1.1 with TP. I am using Mirage Theme & would like to get it working. I have read through the posts in this thread but still have a problem. After it installed & said redirecting to the settings page it just went straight into the forum. I am trying to create a link to the mod but even when I put

/forum/index.php?action=links

in the browser it just goes straight to the main forum page.

Any ideas??

Great Mod!

Does the category permission lists work? I have been able to use the forum default permissions to set  permissons for all the categories, but when i try to assign a group within a category the right to add links it doesn't do anything.  See i want only certain links categories to have groups post links.  Through the forum permissions it is all or nothing.  I have tried just about every way imaginable like giving all rights and then denying rights to categories(thinking deny overides allow) and the opposite and nothing seems to work.

Any ideas, suggestions, or some code that i can use to allow this to happen. Iam running 1.1.2

Thx :-)

I could be wrong but I do believe you have to open the index.english.php file and add a text line to it in order to get the link to show.

Great Mod!

Does the category permission lists work? I have been able to use the forum default permissions to set  permissons for all the categories, but when i try to assign a group within a category the right to add links it doesn't do anything.  See i want only certain links categories to have groups post links.  Through the forum permissions it is all or nothing.  I have tried just about every way imaginable like giving all rights and then denying rights to categories(thinking deny overides allow) and the opposite and nothing seems to work.

Any ideas, suggestions, or some code that i can use to allow this to happen. Iam running 1.1.2

Thx :-)

Does anybody have some ideas about this?

Thx

Yes. Like the latest version of the arcade, this mod suffers from permissions overkill. You have to set the permissions in the normal "Permissions" admin section AND in the mod, itself.

Bloody pain, it is, coz we have fourteen membergroups to wade through, TWICE!

Thanks for the response.  I set that the Regular Members in the normal permission section can view all groupings, but then wanted the regular members to have post ability to a specific links group only.  Do i need to create another group to be able to do this or is there a way to do this?  I  would liike to use the regular members group as all users are automatically added into it. If i create  another group, i will have to add members manually?  Correct, or am i missing something here(which is possible).  Thanks for any assitance.  
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: kat on April 04, 2007, 06:49:52 AM
Yeah. You'll have to add the group and set the permissions, manually.

Unless you set them, under "Admin/Permission/Permissions by Membergroup" to "Set permissions like this group:" and just modify the links bit, to suit.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on April 04, 2007, 06:55:55 AM
 You could use a new group that was entered according to number of posts made and thus was automatic...the members you want to have links permission might well be those who post a lot anyhow.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: eeg on April 04, 2007, 04:16:21 PM
Thx for the responses...
ok, i created a group called 'user submission', added it to a user under their additional membergroups in their profile and then set the privileges on that to be able to view only and then in the permissions under links set that group to have extended rights to a specific category.  Nothing, it didn't work i was able to only view.  It seems to only use the permissions from the group that i set on for 'user submission'.  I tried to also give it both view and add links to the 'user submission' group and then in the permissions in links set the categories to be denied for the 'user submission' group and all the categories had add link showing....  It doesn't seem to recognize the links permissions settings at all.

The creation of a group and setting it to be on posts does not work as it doesn't populate the drop down box for the permissions selection.  :-(

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: eeg on April 04, 2007, 04:46:27 PM
No not at all, probably me... :-)

Basically i am setting up multiple categories say: 1-Web Sites, 2- Downloads, 3-Agents.  I want all the users to read only category's 1 and 2 but i want the users to be able to add their own links to category 3(a user submission area). 

I assign the regular members group to be able to view and rate the links on all three, i am then setting up a separate group called 'user submission' giving it no link permissions and adding a member to the 'user submission' group.  I then go into the Links admin area and go to category permissions and go to category '3-Agents' and assign the user submission group to be able to view, add, delete, etc. within that specific category.  When the user logons and goes into links tab they see the categories and can only view all 3 categories but nothing shows up in the categories to allow them to add links(like it does on the bottom when you give the right) 

If i then go into the 'user submissions' group and give it add links rights it shows up for the user under all the categories.  I have tried to deny the permission for the category for that user group as well and that does nothing.

I hope i explained this well enough... this issue is frustrating...

When I installed the links mod, instead of seeing links configuration in the acp, which I know is supposed to be there, there's a gap. The links also do not appear anywhere on the site unless you know where to find them. Am I doing something wrong or is there something wrong with the mod itself?

// the [links] button
if ($context['allow_view_smflinks'])
echo ($current_action == 'links' || $context['browser']['is_ie4']) ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $first . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '' , '

OK. At ABOUT line 500 of the same template, is there a line that looks like this?

Code: [Select]
if (in_array($context['current_action'], array('links','staff','search', 'arcade', 'admin', 'calendar', 'profile', 'mlist', 'register', 'login', 'help', 'pm')))
It won't have the "staff" bit, nor the "Arcade" bit, unless you have those packages. It SHOULD, I believe, have the "link" bit, though.

Hi all,
still it happens I don't see the link tab into the menu (even if every thing works well if I write directly the URL action=links). I verified those lines indicated here into the other posts, but everything seems to be right.
Instead, look into the manual procedure, I see that into Subs.php I should have the following lines starting with:
$context['admin_areas']['config']['areas'] etc.

but such lines don't exist! So the installation is not completed and maybe there is the problem.

I use the default Theme with SMF 1.1.2

Thank you for any help, Claudio

If you click on "Links" and go to the page, you'll see the permissions on the right hand side, under the heading "Options".

At least, they are, for me.

Also, at the bottom, you'll see "Links Directory Panel".

The options listed are "Add Category", "Add Link", "Links", "Settings" and "Permissions".

That's why you can't see anything. Mods, generally, only work with the SMF default theme. To get it to work with other themes, you'll have to do some manual editing.

You'll find details in the mod package. package-info.xml, if I remember rightly.

If you don't know any php, which I don't, sadly, it can be a bit tricky. I managed by following what alterations it made to the defaul theme and did the same to the others.

It can be a bit of a pain, especially if you have a lot of themes, which we do.

Finally, not having clues, I decided to hack the mod and write directly "LINKS" on the tabs. So, on the test forum everything worked well.
After that I installed the mod into my main forum and magically everything went right without doing anything else! Life is strange!
Anyway, I learnt how to add a tab into the Menu :-))

Now you're asking something.

From your cpanel (The one your host gave you) go to "MySQL® Databases" and you have the option to repair it, there. I'd back it up, first, though. Just in case.

It may not even be that, though. Without looking over your shoulder, to see what's going on, it's tricky, you know?

Just a thought... Have you tried going to your forum's admin panel and from "Forum maintenance" tried to repair any errors?
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: Jadzia on May 08, 2007, 04:31:04 PM
Great thanks I'll give all that a go - I actually just cheated and installed SMF via fantastico to a new folder and installed links on that then exported the database tables into the original database, removed the corresponding create tables out of linksql.php and rezipped and installed the package so now all is working well.

Will still repair the database etc anyway but at least I have the mod working.

Linktree and subcategories

http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=98911.msg997857#msg997857

The linktree does not show the parent category of a subcategory when you are in the subcategory. It shows Links>>subcategory instead of Links>>category>>subcategory. Just makes it a bit awkward; you have to go back to the main Links page to get to the parent category.

One thing I don't like is that If you're looking at the main links index, the categories don't count the number of links contained within child categories.  So, if your main index is a list of parents that don't have any links in them - but has child categories that DO, it looks as though you have no links AT ALL.

vbgamer45,

I have created a link directory (http://www.buffchat.org.uk/smf/index.php?page=10), based upon a free php directory script. I would like the directory to be more closely tied to SMF, so I was looking at replacing it with your SMF Links mod.

Do you think it would be feasible to change the code of your mod to include some of the additional fields I would require? If you think it would be too much effort, I won't bother to start looking at the code, and keep with my existing system.

Many thanks

Daniel

Is there a way to alphabetize the links?

Thanks!

If you go to the links page, you'll see "[Up] [Down] [Permissions] [Edit] [Delete]" in huge letters, underneath "Options".

Guess what they do? (https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.augk18.dsl.pipex.com%2FSmileys%2Fc018.gif&hash=edd6f380fa0021e5ea63ea46e6452358)

Thanks. But, that only moves the categories up and down, right? How do you move links up and down inside each category? Where is the file I can edit to alphabetize?

Thanks
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: kat on July 01, 2007, 08:07:08 AM
I only have one category and I can move each item up and down. Maybe you need to go to each category and do it there?
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: weightman on July 01, 2007, 01:57:38 PM
What are you clicking to move each item up or down inside your one category? I don't see an option for up or down inside the category.

Thanks

I only have the up and down buttons at the category level, which is great for alphabetizing the categories. But, I was hoping to put the actual links inside categories.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: kat on July 01, 2007, 04:53:50 PM
Much better to put just the image url, without the image tags. The forum doesn't resize them, then. ;D

OK. Click on "Links". Click on "Links Settings". Click on "Manage Categories".

Do you get the "Up" and "down", there?

Cancel that. You can only change the order of the categories. You're right.

That seems odd, doesn't it?

If the author of the mod reads this, maybe he'll add that, if we're lucky.

I just installed this mod ....it gave no errors while installing  ........but after installing I dint see any buttons  :( .....
What should I do ??? ....
I'm using 1.1.3v with tiny portal ....

Any help would be greatly appreciated :) .....

With the SMF default theme, you'll see a button labelled "Links". You can configure things, there.

Post by: nolageek on July 09, 2007, 09:29:11 AM
what about properly counting links inside nested categories?
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: klaja26 on July 20, 2007, 07:24:42 AM
I have the SMF Default Core and it still doesnt show up for me. I can get to the pages if i type in the links myself but it doesnt put them in the menu in admin or in the forum, there are just empty places for them. When im on the pages it shows me all the text properly, just doesnt show the links to get to the pages. I installed it on a fresh SMF so there shouldnt be anything else affecting it.
Title: Re: SMF Links

@ klaja26

 Firstly go to ACP>Server Settings and make sure that your forum language is set to english and not english utf8. Go to ACP>Packages>Options and set "Installation Options" approrriate to your hosting. In the same panel you'll find "Cleanup Permissions" use that to "Make all files writeable" and then check, via ftp, that this has changed the CHMOD of your files and directories to 775 or 777 (depending on your hosting configuration.)

 If the problem persists go through a check to make sure everythign is installed correctly as though you were doing a manual installation of this mod using the following as a guide:

http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=402.msg531#msg531 (http://docs.simplemachines.org/index.php?topic=402.msg531#msg531)

 Fix any ommissions as appropriate.

 You are, most certainly, entitled to your opinion...that said there would appear to be many satisfied users who don't share that opinion (I'm one of them.)

Hi,

I am trying to manually install this...

but can you explain the code in installsql.php?


Code: [Select]

$dbresult = SHOW COLUMNS FROM WDB_links_cat
$ID_PARENT = 1;
$image = 1;
while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($dbresult))
{
if($row[0] == 'ID_PARENT')
$ID_PARENT = 0;
if($row[0] == 'image')
$image = 0;


}
mysql_free_result($dbresult);

if($ID_PARENT)
ALTER TABLE WDB_links_cat ADD `ID_PARENT` mediumint(8) unsigned NOT NULL default '0'
if($image)
ALTER TABLE WDB_links_cat ADD `image` tinytext

$dbresult = SHOW COLUMNS FROM WDB_links
$alexa = 1;
$pagerank = 1;
while ($row = mysql_fetch_row($dbresult))
{
if($row[0] == 'alexa')
$alexa = 0;
if($row[0] == 'pagerank')
$pagerank = 0;


}
mysql_free_result($dbresult);

if($alexa)
ALTER TABLE WDB_links ADD `alexa` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0'
if($pagerank)
ALTER TABLE WDB_links ADD `pagerank` tinyint(3) NOT NULL default '0'


Is that if upgrading?

Thanks in advance.

That checks if you have an older version of the mod and upgrades the tables that is for an upgrade only

ALTER TABLE WDB_links_cat ADD `ID_PARENT` mediumint(8) unsigned NOT NULL default '0'
ALTER TABLE WDB_links_cat ADD `image` tinytext
ALTER TABLE WDB_links ADD `alexa` int(10) unsigned NOT NULL default '0'
ALTER TABLE WDB_links ADD `pagerank` tinyint(3) NOT NULL default '0'

Post by: mkress on August 06, 2007, 04:08:08 PM
hello!

i have found a bug.

if you insert links with & in the url - the link gets "destroyed"

for example the link
http://www.handball-neusaess.de/index.php?option=com_content&task=category&sectionid=5&id=17&Itemid=41

get's to
http://www.handball-neusaess.de/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=category&amp;sectionid=5&amp;id=17&amp;Itemid=41

so he does not work.

i hope you can give a workaround for that problem.

Markus


EDIT:

in sources/links.php following has to be changed:

find
Code: [Select]
    header("Location: " . $row['url']);
repllace with

Code: [Select]
    header("Location: " . htmlspecialchars_decode($row['url']));[/b]

Sorry, the solution i posted only works with php5.

With php4 you should do the following:

find
Code: [Select]
header("Location: " . $row['url']);
replace with
Code: [Select]
$trans = array_flip(get_html_translation_table(HTML_SPECIALCHARS, ENT_QUOTES));
header("Location: " . strtr($row['url'], $trans));

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on September 28, 2007, 09:08:58 AM
It can do if you provide the translation files for it....for instance Modifications.english.php would  need to be translated...and then edit the mod into those translation files. The process is covered in the official SMF documentation...link at top of page.

Absolutely frustrated with the re-installation of this mod.I have upgraded my forum from 1.1.3 to 1.1.4 and now,the SMF links page does not seem to work anymore(Previously,I can access and utilize the SMF links page with 1.1.3).Now,it leads me to a blank page when I click on the "Links" tab or when I try to configure the links page via the admin centre.I can neither configure noe view the links page at all.I have tried re-install but the same thing happens.It just display the blank page.I've checked the forum error log and there is no error reported.I have also check the files that are supposed to be edited during installation.All of the changes fit exactly with those indicated on the XML file of SMF links.What's more,installation of this plug in indicates all tests to be successful.

Can someone please advise??I have repaired my tables via phpAdmin,tried manual installation and package installation.The problem still remains.What is wrong??? :(

Another check of the files to make sure all code edits are in place looks to be called for...BTW if you have followed standard SMF advice and done a file backup and and database backup prior to installing or uninstalling mods or themes you can just do a restore to the earlier state of your files.
Title: Re: SMF Links

I have clear the 4 tables pertaining to smf_links each time I re-install manually or by package installer.Neither methods work ...
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on September 29, 2007, 12:53:28 PM
Your last message concerns me...you ought not to have needed to edit the database at all and as the files do look to be in order this would appear to be either down to your database work or some problem due to the truckload of other mods you have installed. Unless somebody else has a better idea I'd be inclined to suggest that you work on a test forum with the database being a backup of your main forum database (backup all the filesfrom your main forum as well)...the files on the test forum being a clean set from SMF 1.1.4 Install into it first the links mod and see if it works. If it does then slowly build up the files again so that you have all your wanted mods installed and do frequent checking to see that it all continues to work. Once you have a new set of files that are fully modded and working then save for Settings.php and Settings_bak.php in your forum root copy them over onto your live/production forum.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: ES23 on September 29, 2007, 02:14:13 PM
Any better easier solutions? :( Sigh .. ... I got to go through all that mess again ... lol...Still have to thank u .. ;)

Just to ask,what exactly should I type under the running query in my phpAdmin to create and alter the right tables for this mod?

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on September 29, 2007, 05:06:59 PM
The easiest way to do the database work in a fresh install would be to use the database altering file from the mod package but that would have already been tried when you attempted to install the mod...had you been installing manually you would obviously have uploaded and triggered it manually...presuming that you did the manual install properly.

 You would have done this by extracting linksql.php from the package, uploading it to your forum root and visiting that file via your browser...thus causing it to run and populate the database as well as making other settings changes to the database...view the file contents in a suitable editor and you will see what changes it seeks to make. If you didn't do this work with the linksql.php then do it now please and see if that helps the situation (it can't do any harm.)
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: ES23 on September 30, 2007, 01:57:43 AM
I tried running the linksql.php but it doesn't seem to create or alter any tables.I've followed your instructions,copying the linksql.php file into my forum root and running it on my browser.A blank page appears when I run it on my browser with the url: www.mywebsite.com/forums/linksql.php What should I do now?? :(

I cannot seem to understand.I have done the exact modifications as stated on the package but how come the mod still refuse to work??I mean it only alters the 6 indicated files as shown in the xml file and adding of extra php files and extra tables.That's all,right?Does it by any chance alter any of the core files in my smf?I have downloaded the SMF gallery and tags which are of the same author as smf links and the other 2 works perfectly fine ... ...How come "SMF Links" is the odd one out?No errors shown,just a blank page under Links Configuration and the action=links page.So strange ...
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on September 30, 2007, 04:53:28 AM
 Running the linksql.php manually should produce a blamk page...same with running any database populating file from any package manually...but it should also try to make the database changes it is coded to make...the behaviour you saw was what I'd have expected.

  Silly question perhaps but have you made sure that you uploaded the additional files from the package...the files the mod adds? If they are already uploaded please try deleting them and replacing them with fresh copies CHMOD to 777 (or 775 if you host won't allow 777.) Other than that I can't see what is wrong and would fall back to the reconstruction of the files as detailed earlier.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: ES23 on September 30, 2007, 06:46:07 AM
Yup ... I have done exactly.All uploaded files are chmoded to 755...no database files are created or altered ... strange...when I install it through package installer,all tests are successful and 4 extra tables are created ... Are there any errors with the modified files I have attached earlier?  O:)

Ya...all are fresh copies .. ... I've downloaded the Links package 4 times and the copies I get are definitely fresh copies ;)
Title: Re: SMF Links

I think so ... ...  ::) So there ain't any wrong with my attached files??The transfer is successful by ACII type transfer using FileZilla Client ...

Could I possibly ask for your help to resolve this problem?I'm willing to pay a small fee for this ... .. just to correct the problem and install this smf links .. ...I will provide you my admin and ftp details via PM or email if you're willing.Thanks alot in advance . :)

Could it be that my links page had been hacked?

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on October 02, 2007, 09:06:19 AM
Firstly thanks for the offer of paid work though as vbgamer45 is the author of this mod he really should get first shot at any payment related to it...and he's far more able to fix it than I am.

 I really do think that you best course of action is a rebuild of the files from the ground up...remember I detailed the suggestion earlier. At least try a test forum and have this mod running properly on it to prove that there is no hosting issue affecting it. Such rebuilds aren't hard to do and don't put too much of a strain on users abilities...they sound far worse than they really are. I suspect that that would solve your problems and get you a forum in the best possible state of repair.

 The reasons for your problems could be many and varied...something may have gone wrong when you were editing the database...it wasn't something you needed to do in this instance and if you didn't take a backup prior to your alterations it was a risky move...there may be a clash with another mod (don't know what off hand but it's possible)...your files may have become corrupt due to some server issue...on and on.

 With a reasonable backup strategy in place and care taken to trial mods etc on a test forum first SMF is one of the most reliable scripts around...and I've used an awful lot of scripts so I can say that with some confidence.

I have over 150 mods in my forum and it is a big pain to install all of them over again.This links mod used to work at my old forum.For some unknown reason,I dunno y it suddenly fail to work ... I have install some mods before this .. like Who's online buddies,password protected boards etc but they souldn't have in anyway conflict with smf links.SMF Gallery and Tags and contact form all works fine.This is the only problematic mod(All tests during installation reads successful) ... I'm not very excellent in php coding and I'm very busy lately,so hope someone will help me resolve this issue.... Totally frustrated over this :(

So I shld contact vbgamer to help me with this? :)
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on October 02, 2007, 10:32:51 AM
You've pretty much said it for yourself I suspect...you've 150 mods...with anything like that number clashes and unexpected results are almost a certainty.

 Standard advice is to keep the number of mods you add as low as you can tolerate...only add the mods you really need. Do you really need more than a fraction of that vast array of mods?

 vbgamer45 will read this topic when he has time...he's a busy person who does a great deal for SMF. Private contacts aren't likely to be wanted as they just add to his workload...most of the people who do a lot here try to avoid having PMs to answer as well.

Thanks for yet another great mod. I was wondering how I was going to do this and boom you already did it!

I have one question but it might be more of a theme CSS problem. - I use the Mesh theme and the top menu is text links not gif buttons. I changed the name instead of "Links" I changed it to "Rate Links" I got it to work BUT the only thing it did like a word wrap thing and the "links" text was below the "rate" text, which didn't look right with the rest of the menu.  Do you guys know why it did this and if there is another topic on this please link me up.

Thanks,
C.P.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on October 12, 2007, 06:11:46 PM
It's really a theme issue and not to do with this mod...you'd be best asking on the topic for the theme on the themes pages where the theme author might either have answered this already or be able to sort it out for you.

Hello,

can someone help me.
I installed this mod. I want to see it properly on my theme and in croatian.
Which files do I have to translate and modife???

Thanks.
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: TrueSatan on October 24, 2007, 04:48:12 AM
Please refer to the official SMF documentation for advice on translating mods (link at top of page in nav bar.) Look at Links.english.php Links.english-utf8.php Modifications.english.php Who.english.php In each case leave the English files unaffected and add/edit your Croatian files as needed.

 As regards themes...either refer to the SMF documentation on adding mods to themes or if in doub to the theme creator.

Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: DeMar on October 25, 2007, 04:56:59 AM
You need to make this in your current theme, file index.template.php!

Code: [Select]
  // Work out where we currently are.
   $current_action = 'home';
   if (in_array($context['current_action'], array('admin', 'ban', 'boardrecount', 'cleanperms', 'detailedversion', 'dumpdb', 'featuresettings', 'featuresettings2', 'findmember', 'maintain', 'manageattachments', 'manageboards', 'managecalendar', 'managesearch', 'membergroups', 'modlog', 'news', 'optimizetables', 'packageget', 'packages', 'permissions', 'pgdownload', 'postsettings', 'regcenter', 'repairboards', 'reports', 'serversettings', 'serversettings2', 'smileys', 'viewErrorLog', 'viewmembers')))
      $current_action = 'admin';
   if (in_array($context['current_action'], array('links','search', 'admin', 'usercp', 'calendar', 'profile', 'mlist', 'register', 'login', 'help', 'pm')))


Code: [Select]
    // Links
   echo ($current_action == 'links' || $context['browser']['is_ie4']) ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $first . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '' , '
            <td valign="top" class="maintab_' , $current_action == 'links' ? 'active_back' : 'back' , '">
               <a href="', $scripturl, '?action=links">Linkovi</a>
            </td>' , $current_action == 'chat' ? '<td class="maintab_active_' . $last . '">&nbsp;</td>' : '';

In the first code I posted you must only write this(it's missing): 'links' ---see code 1 .. the last line!

Code 2 you must copy all some lines later! There where you want your button!
I mean between the buttons, for example "usercp" & "calendar"!

I hope I helped you.

Obviously you need to translate Links.english.php but in addition to that you need to translate Who.english.php to get the mod to work...leave the English files in place unaltered and add your translated versions in addition to them not as replacements for them.

Just installed the SMF Links mod. No errors reported during install, but only Admins seem to be able to delete links, although permissions set such that regular members can delete links that they have added.

The table smf_links_catperm shows all the correct information:
 
ID    ID_GROUP    ID_CAT    view    addlink    editlink    dellink    ratelink    report       
1   -1   1   1   0   0   0   0   0      
2   0   1   1   1   1   1   0   0      
3   1   1   1   1   1   1   0   0      
4   12   1   1   1   1   1   0   0      
5   -1   2   1   0   0   0   0   0      
6   0   2   1   1   1   1   0   0      
7   1   2   1   1   1   1   0   0      
8   12   2   1   1   1   1   0   0

10   0   3   1   1   1   1   0   0      
11   1   3   1   1   1   1   0   0      
12   12   3   1   1   1   1   0   0   

Yet if a regular member selects a link they have added, the only option they are provided with is the ability to "edit" the link. Any hints or tips before I go digging into the code? Thanks.

That error shows that you have a double (or more) install of the mod so you will need to go through all the files the mod affects and remove any extra code...you probably know the process of a manual install and the details of the package parser...go through the manual install process checking the files and use the package parser to help if needed.

I've installed your mod on my forum. However I am confused of the following:
The link text appears and the link configuration also appears in the admin area when I loged in as admin. However, when I sign out, the link text disappears although in the setting, I allowed guests can view the link, members and other groups can view, add, delete his own links. What's the matter with mine? You can check my site at: www.banksofvietnam.com

Thanks in advance for your help!

there is nothing wrong with you.... its just a not well thought of mod... i thought i was crazy too when my links page wont appear to anybody even after ive set the permissions on the link admin page. 

you actually have to set the permissions in the main permissions (for the forum) and not the link page permissions. (ignore the permission admin for the links as it wont even show them t all correctly either)

also... it wont categorize your categories and subcategories correctly... it will just dump them all in the categories admin page.

i hope someday the author will make this mod better since there is no other link directory mod out there yet... (tiny portal may have one in the near future to go along with their whole shebang)

Great. Thanks for considering it. :)

Another suggestion would be an option to choose how many 'top' links are displayed. So you could have "Top Ten Rated Links" and "Top Ten Visited Links" (instead of the default five), for example.

- Admin can choose how many 'top links' are displayed (not just the default 5)

Hi all.

I'm using this lovely mod for a site I'm putting together for older computer users, but I'm having the strangest problem - I can only allow users to edit or delete all links, or no links - for the categories I've set up, I've added permissions for the category so that guests and regular members have full access:

Member Group Name   View   Add Link   Edit own Link   Delete own Link   Options

Regular Members   Allowed   Allowed   Allowed   Allowed   [Delete]
Guests   Allowed   Allowed   Allowed   Allowed   [Delete]


And yet, when I check the Category Permission List, the entry for regular members isn't there - more perplexing though is the fact that members don't get the ability to edit or delete their own links.

Any advice or suggestions would be gratefully accepted.

Where would I look to correct this?
Its working perfect within the default theme, its just this text not displaying above the content, in my custom theme.
The only manual edit for the custom theme I have done, is to add the links button.
The rest are pulled from the default.
Should something else have been added to the custom theme?

download SMFLinks1.6.7.zip
 and upload manual in to your site
Links.php category Sources
Links.template.php category Themes/default



Then open phpmyadmin>base SMF Forum>smf_links
U must create 1 field at the end

field name: banner
type: varchar
letters: 100
Null
default: 0

I appreciate the addition. However, it gives syntax errors when you try and edit a link.

Hi. I have installed SMF Links. Problem is, The "links" option at the menu appears only for the admins. If a simple member tries to visit the link url, he would get a "You can not view the links page." error.

any suggestions?

You need to edit permissions for the usergroup.

ACP > permissions > Regular members

Thanks a lot!

Is there a way to make the mod to work with utf-8 non-english letters? The whole forum works fine at greek-utf8...
Title: Re: SMF Links
Post by: vbgamer45 on June 21, 2008, 01:38:27 PM
Yes you will need to convert the links tables to utf8 inside the database then it should work ok.

Good day!

It is a nice mods for SMF and i'm already using it...however, i would like to ask if there is a possibility to show the latest links submitted to tinyportal?

One more thing, is there possibility to include pictures to the link submission...if so, how we can do it as i'm not a good php programmer....

Hi Everyone,

Love the mod :) I would like to change the header "Links" to another name and add a description underneath... I have tried modifying the files with my own header but my error log was filling up... what files do i need to edit and what do I need to edit to change the header and add a few lines underneath?

Cheers!

Hi,
Great mod! I have a question for upgrading. It says to uninstall the old version first, but will this delete my links? Should I install the new version and then uninstall the old one?

Also, two things I noticed in the last version and wanted to know if they were changed in 1.7.

1)The last version would let the people making the description keep writing, but then when they send it for approval it will cut off some of what they wrote if it is too long.

2) The last version wouldn't count the links of two child categories. I have: flight schools-> United States-> Massachusetts(or whatever state). The flight school will say it has 0 links.

Thank,
Ross

You can uninstall the modification. It does not remove any of the links data when you uninstall.

1. Will have to look into.

2. Currently this is how sub counting of totals works. It will count for the total level category and a sub category under it but not a sub sub category.

I have installed the newest version (1.7), and it works great, with one slight problem. When I go to delete a link normally or from the approval list, it deletes the link but gives me the error "Unable to load 'main' template". for "index.php?=action=links&amp;sa=deletelink2".

Has anyone else had this problem, or know where I might look for the error? It gives me no line numbers or file names in which this is occurring.

I am trying to add a link tab button in index.template.php . I am using a custom theme. I had to customize the code for button as it a custom theme, on doing so the link looks like what you see in attached picture.

the code i used was:

Code: [Select]
// Invite Mod
if (allowedTo('invite'))
echo '
<li>
<a' , $current_action=='invite' ? ' class="current"' : '' , ' href="', $scripturl, '?action=invite">
  <span class="menu-left"></span>
<span class="menu-mid">' , $txt[invite_title] , '</span>
<span class="menu-right"></span>
</a>
</li>';

I have uploaded my index.template.php i have kept the above code in the file. If you could alter it for me so it works and shows correctly that would be great. I want it as it is, right hand side of the "invite" links button.

Thank you,

When adding descriptions for links, I have found that

1) It ignores any new lines. All the information entered gets crammed into a single paragraph.

2) It doesn't support UTF-8.

Is there any way to change these things?

Ok. I found if I turn on "allow BBC Code", it lets me add in blank lines and other things. Still no luck on the UTF-8 however.

And just found the other solution.. for those interested.

You will need to go into the database (I used PHPMyAdmin) and edited the SMF Links table, changing the description coding to UTF_Unicode_ci.

Thanks again for this great mod.

if you would like to see the error in action:

http://www.pixelbypaint.com/forum/index.php?action=links

not sure what you are doing there, but it didnt get rid of the error..

can i ask what level of mysql and php are you running?

sometimes that has a play on items as well.

im not trying to be offensive, but i have some very important graffix links that my site members use and i still havent rolled it back to the 1.6 yet, as i havent had the time, but i will in the am.. i do hope you get this fixed vb, as the mod is a very good one, like the rss feeder one as well.  ;) 

btw, have you checked your messages at all??(from me on that mod [rss])  if you do not want to turn it over to me, no worries, i will create one myself.. i just wanted your permission is all..  :)  as it stands, i would rather have my own..

but back to the topic.. if you need a test acct on my site, will pop one up for you.. let me know -SB

this is what pops up in the error log as well..

Code: [Select]
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message

btw, have you checked your messages at all??(from me on that mod [rss])  if you do not want to turn it over to me, no worries, i will create one myself.. i just wanted your permission is all..  :)  as it stands, i would rather have my own..

but back to the topic.. if you need a test acct on my site, will pop one up for you.. let me know -SB

this is what pops up in the error log as well..

Code: [Select]
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
8: Undefined index: permissionname_delete_links_any
File: /home/***/forum/Sources/ManagePermissions.php
Line: 1536

Code: [Select]
Apply Filter: Only show the errors with the same message
8: Undefined index: permissionname_edit_links_any
File: /home/***/forum/Sources/ManagePermissions.php
Line: 1536

if that will help as well..  :)

That sounds like you need to goto your member groups and validate the permissions are set for each group..

Hi,

I thought it would be a really neat feature if links were automatically listed according to ranking (with higher ranking links being at the top)

I've managed to bury some pretty good links under others not nearly so worthy since I started using the mod (and that as just in one day - moving all the links I had in separate threads...)

Any of the Braniacs willing to have a go? :)

ok i rolled it back to the 1.6 and still get the unable to load main tmeplate..

vbgamer, have you figured anything out with it yet?

i would hate to remove it off my site, but if its not functioning, there is no reason i should keep it.  :)
Title: Re: SMF Links (1.7 Released)
Post by: Smoky "Rider" Blue on November 30, 2008, 03:48:29 AM
ok...

no response vbgamer??

here is what i have done..

i went into the cpanel and found the database my forum uses, i found the links table, i went to "browse" (first image on the left for me, at least..) and then i exported the links saved in the databse via a xml file..

(links were intact) hmm..

then i removed the mod, (1.72 ) that was causing the grief. and then i droped the table for it as well..

i then re uploaded the mod, and guess what. no errors. imagine that.. now, what could have caused it to become corrupted? for that is what happened.. i even offered you to test the mod issue out..

but now it's at least working, and i have to correct pixel again, will be very happy to have the mod working like i know it should..

hopefully, if anyone else has this issue.. like HR  :D they too can fix it.

thanks again..  ;)

now that i found the fix:

i went into the cpanel and found the database my forum uses, i found the links table, i went to "browse" (first image on the left for me, at least..) and then i exported the links saved in the databse via a xml file..

i then re uploaded the mod, and guess what. no errors. imagine that.. now, what could have caused it to become corrupted? for that is what happened.. i even offered you to test the mod issue out..

ITS WORKING NOW

maybe someone, perhaps even vbgamer ;) can figure out why it did this and why i had to take extra steps in getting the mod working again.. or why there was even an update to it, as the 1.6 bersion was working correctly before the 1.71 was announced, which in turn screwed up not only my site but a few others.. and he couldnt even say how to fix this..

Harsh, im not sure what to tell you on yours.. and i hope if you can figure it out, post it up as well..

@FreeSporePrints.. if you find you have no uninstall, then download the mod, open it up, find the .xml file and add your version of smf to the install and the uninstall part of the file, using notepadd++

/me mutters.. why couldnt someone give him this advise before now??? hmm off for a smoke and bedtime.. later taterzz  ;)

Hey guys...  A bit harsh.

These mods are made free of charge - that's always worth keeping in mind (if you gave up your Saturday afternoons to mow the old lady down the road's lawn, how impressed would you be if she kept poking notes in your letterbox saying that you'd missed a bit in the far corner...?)

Title: Re: SMF Links (1.7 Released)
Post by: Smoky "Rider" Blue on December 01, 2008, 07:59:47 AM
hmm.. sakura1998

im  a mod creator too.. i stand by mine and i fully support what few i do have. Harsh?? i support create and think of what more i can do. i know i cant be in 3 places at one time, but i do try. i do give a response, even if i am stuck or otherwise. i try to do the right thing and think of the "new" people, you know, the ones that have no idea of what they are doing..

i try not to sit around and let others solve what i cant get going, unless i do admit that, and i seek out others that might know where to go from my "stuck end of view"

harsh? no, im not harsh at all.. Harsh is one of my friends, and ya know what? i gave up all afternoon yesterday to help him out, cuz i wanted to  try and help him fix this.. do i see anyone else with this issue, or attempting to help fix it?

im sorry if you think this is harsh, but i dont think you would like it if i invited you to tea with a soggy wet map and no directions that are readable. same thing i have been "chatting " on here..  i do not think you would go for that ride either. just clearing the air here, and vbgamer has seen me post for a while now so.. take this for what it is worth..

its how i corrected my issue with the mod.
Title: Re: SMF Links (1.7 Released)
Post by: HR on December 01, 2008, 08:06:32 AM
**Update.. the error remained despite the update.
Resolved by:
1. Uninstallation (COMPLETE, manually had to edit a few files reporting error)
2. From control panel export links tables to SQL (make sure it doesnt have the 'DROP' option.
3. Install 1.7.2
4. From control panel Import your content from previous version (note this is CONTENT ONLY and not table creation or dropping of existing tables).

 As for the above comment.. if I get repeated calls about that corner I go cut the whole of the yard again and make sure I have the corner this time. You DONT go cut the corner and leave the rest because then the corner is cut lower. If the calls bother me then I fix what I screwed up and stop advertising that I cut yards.

 Where this would relate to mods.. Id pull the thing down if it doesnt hold water (this is why I dont throw mods up for public distribution or charge for support after the fact when I do work). I have yet to figure out why the update process would not resolve the error as I manually placed the files there when I saw the error remained to be certain they were in fact the current version and there were no issues with overwrite permissions. But hey.. there you have it just dont update the thing.

 But, I do do database work and the like for site restructure.. and if a customer installed a bug following with a mod and they still want the thing (despite my sincere recommendations to the contrary) then it shows up in the log and I hear about it. Stuff rolls down hill and Im the middle man.

for 3rd time. it does work this way, and not sure how you coded the mod in the first place..

im only a site customizer.. i create a few mods/themes i think are benefiting a site, mess with seo, marketing and the like..

i maintain over 9+ sites and wont upgrade a mod on anyone else,unless i know that the mod update will work straight from jump street, and is an "actual upgrade"

i really see little difference between the 1.6 and the 1.71-1.72, as the functions are all the same

but i imagine there is a piece either missing or wrongly written to throw the error up..

i have only a few bits of time lately to debug other people's errors, but if you can figure this out vbgamer, it will be appreciated, like all your other ones..

Hi Smoky,

Since you make and release mods yourself, I guess you're more than qualified to comment  :)

I've just seen some really ungrateful responses from folks who have very little right to be ungrateful since learning about Open Source (I'm not old enough in the scene to take it all for granted - when someone makes a mod and shares it, I feel I've been done a favor)

I realize it's a bit of a geek thing (peer appreciation is the reward for the guys and girls who make this kind of stuff and the standards are generally high)

As open source moves more and more beyond the realm of geeks alone (very much what the Web2.0 revolution means in my opinion) I hope we can reassess the relationship of coders and their public and create a place where 'please' and 'thank you' are commonly heard (which they aren't and I think that's a shame...)


Here's my idea - Why not have a 'modders forum' where the braniacs can hammer at each other and win grudging respect from other coders and make the public forum the 'smiley-happy place'  8)

perhaps you could ask to split this from the topic sakura1998.. and no offense, the web 2.0 looks good etc., but there is something better after the web 2.0 revolution.. i promise lol..  ;)

@ sebtor.. follow my instructions for what i did, re guardless of the mod version, and this will work, im nto sure why but i tried this on all 3 versions from 1.6 to 1.71 and 1.72

@vbgamer, no luck yet? I pointed BigGuy's site (smfhelper) to this thread in hopes that someone from there might be able to figure out why and let everyone know.. i would recommend that if anyone has the working 1.6 version, not to update at this time.

just my 2 cents..

ps since my cousins funeral today, i am swamped with family, so im going to be in and out for the next few days..

Title: Re: SMF Links (1.7 Released)
Post by: jay.clark on January 02, 2009, 01:49:09 AM
You need to do permissions. Admin -> Permissions
Then modify each group and given them permissions needed for links

Thanks, solved my problem.  I had been thinking that setting the permissions in the
admin>configuration>links was all that was required, had not realized that they also had to be set in another location

Title: Re: SMF Links (1.7 Released)
Post by: ohioreef on February 05, 2009, 10:30:31 PM
I have installed this mod on my forum and really like it, however whenever someone clicks on one of the links the following error shows up in my forum error log:

Quote
http://www.worcreef.org/index.php?action=links;sa=visit;id=11 
Unable to load the 'main' template.

The page that is linked appears to load fine so I'm not sure what the error is.

Any thoughts?

Post by: laetabi on February 11, 2009, 11:26:38 AM
This is a great mod. Having read through these posts I see a few have suggested an image url for each link rather than just the categories. I know you can insert the image in the description but the layout doesn't look right.

This should be a fairly simple amendment (I say that but it is probably beyond me!) but would really make this mod come alive instead of just listing text links.

Can anyone suggest the code changes necessary to add the Image URL to the bottom of each link's posting and editing page, create the necessary database field and enable it to be displayed to the left of the link Title (and be clickable) in the listings?

I'd really like to use this but without images/logos for each link the list becomes too 'text' based...

Any helpers really appreciated

Thanks

Hi members

I installed the package a few days ago, works like a charm. Unfortunally i messed it up now :(
I was resetting the permissions for the links package, and I accidently deleted the administrator permissions! So now I can not add permissions for anything in the SMF links package.
So I uninstalled the package, and re-installed again, hoping that this would reset the install but it just came out like before :(

How can I sort this out?

Install and php experience detail: SMF 2.0 RC1 and my experience level is about 1% out of 100%

So now that I have deleted the administrator permissions, I am pretty stuck  :(

How do I get out of this mess?

Hope you can help...

Hi vb

Have installed the latest 1.8.1.1 SMF Links onto 2.0 RC1 - installation went straight through no problem

I've managed to find the double-blind permissions (in members - permissions - general permissions - modify (each group in turn)) as well as in the permission set up in several areas of the mod's pages.
(side topic - the Links system permissions list in the membergroup modify has no title showing so it's not at all obvious that it's there - still checking if this is an English vs English-utf8 issue although I'm currently on plain old English)

The issue I have is that having set up link categories and sub-categories, and added a few links and set all the permissions blah blah - when I click on any link (as an admin, a user, or a guest) I get the following -

Not Acceptable

An appropriate representation of the requested resource /board/index.php could not be found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.9 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.9 OpenSSL/0.9.7a DAV/2 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 Server at www.buildaskill.com Port 80

[/h]

I'm not the first person to mention that, that mod-security patch DID NOT work, and I'm not the first person that you ignored reporting that result.

As it is ONLY the Links mod getting this result, it implies there is a bug in the mod, or at the very least an incompatibility with something in the hosting of a number of users.  Our hosts are latest php sql etc so it is not an old OS causing the issue.
Our hosts use typical configs (it's not godaddy or anyone like that).

As per my first request - Any further recommendations?

I would really like to get this to work, but if you're going to do an eBay Universal Support Script ("clear cache and cookies" + "click" as the phone hangs up) then I'll de-install now so I can get on with adding the other mods.

I have smf 1.1.8 but the version 1.67 it doesn't install either.
I tried to guess how to make a manual installation, and it seems that the installation script searches for code section starting with "CDATA blablabla", but in my files i have just the "blablabla" stuff without CDATA.

I tried to patch the installation xml file, but i'm not expert enough to make it work (and i guess it won't uninstall, if needed..)

so, vbgamer, would you just jump in here and spend some minutes to explain how to manual install it?
you have the working code, don't bother packing it... just cut&paste it here with some instructions.....

the package parser on the mod page will show you how to manually install the mod on the two test failed files.

Sorry if my questions have been answered already, I did have a looksie through the old posts but couldn't find anything...

I am wondering:-

Is it possible to sort the links once they are in their categories? Just think it would be a lot tidier if they were sorted...
Is it possible to have an image for the links (I know its possible for the categories)...

If so, would you please mind telling me how I can go about implementing them.

Thanks :)

----------------

I am also a little confused, just installed 1.8.1.1 onto my 1.1.8 forum and well it failed the install on admin.php and subs.php so I just went in to do the edits and well i cant find where to put them because the lines that are quoted in the package parser are not in my files....have attached both my files would someone please mind taking a look and telling me where i need to add the information...

thanks :)

that's false

if you try, you will obtain the manual instruction for smf 2.0, there's an error in the script, and this issue has already be reported before.

well I have it installed on my 1.1.8 site and while it failed on those two files that everyone has been mentioning, it is working fine and not pulling any errors. 

OK, I got the SMF Links 1.67 to install on 1.1.8 and works in the default theme, but what code do I install in my themes to make it work on the others?

Thanks,

RGecy

you will need to create a new tab within your themes index template to show the links page - no other edits needed.

not that I am aware of, but I have been using this mod for quite some time and cannot fault it (except i wish it would sort the links in alphabetical order)

Find /.../Themes/default/links.template.php and then search for

Code: [Select]
default:
$sort = 'l.ID_LINK';
}

}
else
{
$sort = 'l.ID_LINK';
}

Replace with:

Code: [Select]
default:
$sort = 'l.title';
}

}
else
{
$sort = 'l.title';
}

That should do it...

Using SMF 1.1.9

Hi I am having the same problem as many other people, but no solution has been forthcoming.  When I install with the package manager I get :

6.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/Admin.php   Test failed
7.   Execute Modification   ./Sources/Subs.php   Test failed

Now as we know the parser for the manual hack is misleading.

Can we get the right manual modifications for admin.php and subs.php for use in SMF 1.1.x please VBGamer ?

Just post them here so we can all see.   Thanks.

I am having issues with a few of smf hacks mods most of which are easy to solve but I cannot get the smf links info to be visible in the admin members permission screen. I have the radio buttons but no text in the fields.

This is making things difficult but I finally found the manual install info here just like the others cannot locate the places to manually verify the Admin.php and Subs.php. I did not get an error when I installed this mod but the edits are not there. What can I do?

I am Running 1.1.9 with tp v1 beta 3

hi vbgamer45

i wanted to ask - I use TP, is there a way for me to add a small list of the last 6 links added to the links directory and display it in a block ?

What I am wanting is this (without descriptions and stuff - just the name of the site linked to the URL:

Last 6 Links added:
- link 1
- link 2
- link 3
- link 4
- link 5
- link 6
Add A Link (link for adding a new link)

thanks
Coded a quick TinyPortal / SSI function you can use

Code: [Select]
function ssi_links_recent()
{
global $scripturl,$db_prefix;

$dbresult = db_query("SELECT l.ID_LINK, l.rating, l.title,l.date, l.ID_MEMBER, l.description,l.hits FROM {$db_prefix}links AS l WHERE l.approved = 1 ORDER BY l.ID_LINK DESC LIMIT 5", __FILE__, __LINE__);
while($row = mysql_fetch_assoc($dbresult))
{

echo '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;sa=visit;id=' . $row['ID_LINK'] . '" target="blank">' . $row['title'] . '</a><br />';


}
echo '<br />';
echo '<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;sa=addlink">Add Link</a>';

mysql_free_result($dbresult);
}

Can you provide the code for SMF 2.0 as well, because the code above will not work with 2.0???

Hello.

I'm having a problem with installing the most recent version of SMFLinks.

I'm using SMF 2.0RC1-2 and I'm trying to install this mod on my forums. The only problem is that all except the following one goes through.

Quote
Database Error
SQL logic error or missing database
near "NOT": syntax error
File: /home/generati/public_html/forum/Packages/temp/linksql2.php
Line: 20

Everything checks out, without problems or issues. The correct folder permissions have been set. I've double & triple checked all files that were needed. Despite saying "Test Successful" on every last one of them, and trying both Manual Installation & through the Package Manager, That one listed problem is preventing me from installing it on my forums.

If it helps any, when that error is shown, and I look in the error log, this is the image of what I see, as to what is supposedly "missing".

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi31.tinypic.com%2F264rzlw.jpg&hash=3a562f8903aa49b6c14fa923fe06f454)

When I look into the same line, in the directory, by way of FTP, I get this

(https://www.simplemachines.org/community/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi29.tinypic.com%2F2el4bw6.jpg&hash=4538328601992cdae6d3b3ea99636cc0)

As you can see, what is shown in the error message, to the first pic. Is not there in the second pic.

To further extend the issue, When I looked into that line through Notepad++ to see if there was an issue, There was nothing on that line. Which most likely caused the error. Which is still strange by all means...

Any help with this issue, would be very much appreciated. I have searched all of the pages of this thread. I have also searched the forums of where this mod originates. So I have done the research, but no findings.

I've installed SMF Links 2.0 on a 1.1.10 forum without any errors.
However, Administrators are the only ones who can Edit or Delete links on the link approval page, even though it's specified in the membergroup permissions that a few other groups have these abilities. Here's Global Moderator for instance:

I can see the Edit and Delete links fine when I set my primary membergroup to Administrator, but when I change it back to Global Mod, those links are gone:

Edit and Delete links work only for owner of the link.
Admins are allowed to edit/delete any links

I was also the owner/submitter of the link in that example.. so that shouldn't be the issue. Anything else that might cause those options to not show?

Other issues:

*The [up] and [down] links for reorganizing categories and subcategories don't do anything most of the time, yet do work -some- of the time. ???

*URLs with ampersand '&' in them become '&amp;' breaking the URL.

Example: http://forums.mapcore.net/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=6806 (http://forums.mapcore.net/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=6806)
becomes: http://forums.mapcore.net/viewtopic.php?f=58&amp;t=6806 (http://forums.mapcore.net/viewtopic.php?f=58&amp;t=6806)  <- Not a valid page

<3 <3 <3 Requests for future versions of SMF Links <3 <3 <3:

*Add the option to turn off 'Total Links' count. The current setup only counts links in categories (and subcategories, with that option enabled) but not sub-subcategories, which we're using a number of, so link counts show as '0' in each of the main cats. on the links page.
Example: If you had '2D & 3D Graphics' as a category, then 'Blender' as a subcategory, and then 'Video Tutorials' as a sub-subcategory with 50 links inside of it, the link count for '2D & 3D Graphics' would still display as '0', and users think there's nothing there to see.

*Redirect users to the last page viewed when you're done editing a link or category, instead of redirecting to the main links page.

*Add in support for horizontal rule bars to break the links up a bit, as an option to have them appear right above unclickable categories that appear as bold text headers in between the links for better organization. If they could also serve as an HTML anchor, that would awesome. This would also cut down on a few clicks to get the links you want.

Example:

Category One:
Link A
Link B

Category Two:  <-- Also has a HTML anchor (#cat2 or so) to jump down to here when specifying ?action=links#cat2 in the URL.
Link C
Link D


*Add a mouse-over preview of the URL you'll be going to if you're to click a link (currently there's no way to tell what you'll be visiting exactly).

Thanks vbgamer45! Keep up the good work!

*The [up] and [down] links for reorganizing categories and subcategories don't do anything most of the time, yet do work -some- of the time. ???

This seems to only happen in subcategories, the main categories can be rearranged *most* of the time.

When the subcategories are refusing to move, it sometimes jumps back to the main links page and *apparently* moves the parent category up or down on the main page (it really doesn't, it just *looks* that way, but if you try to 'fix' it, it looks like it jumps 2 places, or, gives you and error that it's already the top category [it is, it just isn't displaying that way]).

However, when you go back into the subcategory, -sometimes- they've moved the way you wanted. In my case, it didn't work.

Here's a video showing this in action:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3bKRk2eE8vg

As a temporary workaround, we've made all the subcategories into main categories, and limit subs to only 1 level deep.

I've loaded  Links 2.0.1 onto a SMF 2.0 RC 1.2 yesterday. I've gone over the permissions and made a couple of links to check out. My problem is that even though I've given Guests permissions to view links they cannot do so - it tells them that they have to sign in or register to view links.

Any suggestions?

Also, I think I saw this earlier in this thread - but didn't see an answer (sorry if I just missed it). I want the parent categories to show and the sub-categories to either show below them - or for them to be listed once the parent category is selected. Is there a way to do this?

Thanks!  :)

I could not figure out was actually caused it. I knew that SMF links was last installed when I got the error. My host informed that the problem was not from their side.

I restored my last backup to fix it.

Hi, I wanted a simple download system for my forum and looked it up in the Modifications but none suits my taste.

I want one that list all the links in one a page and when users click on them, they didnt have to open new window for description and such. so I chose SMF Links to do the trick.

But then I need to change some item:

1. the Menu name to be Download

2. the description for the Category will appear in Category page.

3. maybe some modification for the Mod Menu names (eg: Add Link to be "Add Download", etc) as well.

if you need more information, let me know.

thanks in advance.

Title: Re: SMF Links (2.1.1 Released with SMF 2.0 RC2 Support!)
Post by: hafizadam on January 06, 2010, 06:59:15 PM
Actually the idea is because of:

1. our users mainly using MediaFire as their hosting, external server
2. we have multiple files to download for a category (The same concept as Mangas, they have Volume 1, 2, 3 etc.)

I've took a look on another download Mod, but the users have to open each Volume in a New Page before they saw the Download Link. It's such a bother for them especially when they have crappy connection and missed a whole bunch of Volumes to download. So this Mod will be very helpful as all Volumes are in one page and the users can access them directly. One click will bring them the MediaFire page.

Anyway, thanks for the tips. I'll try to look into that.

and to NO:
Manage Categories

and User has no Option right next to his name. Also when setting category permission i have no options right beside the name to edit/delete whatever. Only admin can do this.

Thank you, this package is very useful to us and works well  :)

I wonder if you know of this issue: when the mod adds the Links menu item it changes the 'mlist' code line such that the leading tabs are missing. "So what" you might say, the Members link still appears. However, other mods that look for:
Code: [Select]
'mlist' => array(cannot find this line, a the code now looks like:
Code: [Select]
'mlist' => array(
This affects for example Aeva Media which returns an error on install. Please could this be resolved so that the SMF Links mod leaves the subs file 'tidy' so that other mods can install correctly, thanks.

KC,

I consider this different from Affiliates.

Affiliates links have a banner and you expect a link-back.
This is just a link directory listing, for the most part...

(I use both, on my sites)

Title: SMF Links cannot add or update descriptions
Post by: jay.clark on March 15, 2010, 01:02:53 PM
This problem cropped up at some point and I think it may be related to doing an upgrade from smf 1.11 to 2.0 RC2.

When I add a new category or sub-category to the links everything proceeds normally.

However the description does not display, for admin or users.

When I go back to the same entry and do an edit, whatever text I put into the description field is no longer there.  Seems like the save for description is not working so the text never gets into the db.

So far I have tried uninstall/reinstall with no success, I was missing the englishutf8 language file so I installed that and tried the install uninstall again, still no luck.

Checking I found that the 2.2 release was available, so uninstalled 2.1, uploaded 2.2 and installed it, still no success.

Is anyone having similar problems ? Is there a fix ?  Where should I look next for the answer?

jayr

Update

Thinking I might find a clue, I checked out the instruction for doing a manual install for RC2.

I found that the file linksql2.php was missing from the root directory of the forum installation.

Tried uploading it and linksql.php to my /forums directory, changed permissions to 777 and tried editing a description again.

No luck, descriptions still do not display and apparently are not getting saved when I hit the edit button, nothing shows up in the error log either.

I checked the other files and they all appear to be in the correct place in /themes/default as well

any suggestions of what to try next gratefully appreciated

Post by: jay.clark on March 19, 2010, 09:11:39 PM

I had the same problem when adding a description to a category, I found that you need to toggle out of WYSIWYG editor when adding the description (and editing) for it to save.  The links descriptions don't have the full editor so seem to work just fine.

Thanks, that did the trick for me

It would be a very nice feature if you could use this to reserve links in your forum, i.e. block out all links posted except approved ones here, using bbcode.  ;D

That at least is what I am looking for right now!

i've just upgraded to RC3.. and seem to have lost the ability to set permissions for membergroups.. no one but admin can see the links at all.. there's no options to set general permissions for SMF links at all in the admin panel.. only thing close to it is the permissons by category.. but that doesnt really help if access is denied in general..

is there something im missing??

but the guest can't choose ths link.. mybe is only  little mistake because in the Permission list they don't have this choosen.

Post by: Abavagada on July 17, 2010, 02:44:06 PM
For those users that are running this under 1.11 and still can't allow users to edit and delete their own links, I suggest making this change to the Sources/ManagePermissions.php file:

Change:
'smflinks' => array(
            'view_smflinks' => false,
            'add_links' => false,
            'edit_links' => false,
            'delete_links' => false,
            'links_manage_cat' => false,
            'approve_links' => false,
            'links_auto_approve' => false,
            'rate_links' => false,
         ),

To:

'smflinks' => array(
            'view_smflinks' => false,
            'add_links' => false,
            'edit_links' => array (
               'edit_links_any' => true,
               'edit_links_own' => false
            ),
            'delete_links' => array (
               'delete_links_any' => true,
               'delete_links_own' => false
            ),
            'links_manage_cat' => false,
            'approve_links' => false,
            'links_auto_approve' => false,
            'rate_links' => false,
         ),

Then try changing the permissions in the normal forum permissions area, by groups.

Also, if anyone wants to see it running on my site (which is still under construction):
http://www.parleremo.org/forum/index.php?action=links

However, I have hacked mine a bit for appearances and the thumbnails.

Hope this helps someone.

Members can't edit or delete their own links just as I wanted global mods to edit & delete there own links.
I've changed the permissions in both places & its still not working. I've uninstalled  & reinstalled .... still no good.

When you have a multi page list of links, and you do a sort by column, for example title, the sort order is not passed to the second page (ie the page links are not built to respect the current sort order)

so for example, after sorting on title on the first page you get
index.php?action=links;cat=1;start=0;sort=title;sorto=ASC

but the page 2 link will be
index.php?action=links;cat=1;start=15

Here is my fix for 2RC3, in the Links2.template.php file (themes/default) 

find
Code: [Select]
$context['page_index'] = constructPageIndex($scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $cat, $_REQUEST['start'], $total, $modSettings['smflinks_setlinksperpage']);

replace
Code: [Select]
$context['page_index'] = constructPageIndex($scripturl . '?action=links;cat=' . $cat . (isset($_REQUEST['sort']) ? ';sort=' . $_REQUEST['sort'] : '') . (isset($_REQUEST['sorto']) ? ';sorto=' . $_REQUEST['sorto'] : ''), $_REQUEST['start'] , $total, $modSettings['smflinks_setlinksperpage']);

(Same fix should work on 1.1 but the file would be Links.template.php and I have only tested this on 2.0)

I manually installed this mod and it is not working.

1.  After uploading linksql2.php and executing it, I get a blank white screen.  I check my database and the tables were not created.

I went and removed the coding until my site came back up.

The coding for subs.php was removed and it brought my site back up.

version rc3.  latest 5.x mysql

Any idea what I may have missed and why this file did not execute the creation of the tables in my database.

I have manually installed all my mods with no problems.

The tables should start with smf_links

Yes sir.  I tried that.  I then opened up the file that was uploaded to the root directory to see what tables should have been created.  They were not created when I checked the database.

I tried to run the file under Firefox, latest version, and IE, latest version, both three or four times each.

I only use your mods and all the mods I use are manually edited in.  I never use that package manager.  I like to see what is being changed so I can LEARN for myself later on and fix problems if they arise.

I believe everyone should manually hack their boards and disregard the package manager.

I've installed both SMF Links and SMF Downloads by vbgamer. If you can do a little programming, it's not hard to use the same basic script from SMF Downloads in SMF Links. I did that on my own site, as well as some extra customization (like my stuff is language related, so I added links fields for both systems).

Both are excellent mods.

+Added counting of unlimited depth subcategories link totals

I am using SMF Links v. 2.3.2, and I am running into a little problem.
I am also using SMF 2.0 RC5 default theme.

If I "checked" the box "Counts child categories link totals", then it will mess up the frame.
As shown in attached pic 1, the child category links are running outside of the screen to the right.

If I "unchecked" the box "Counts child categories link totals", then everything is fine, EXCEPT it does not count the child category links, which is NOT looked good, as it shows 0, while there are many under there.
As shown in attached pic 2, the first to Titles have shown 0 links

Please help to fix this error.
Thanks much in advanced

I don't expect to get this answer from you, but can you make the text/links "wrap" inside the width of this cell (sub cat)?
Will this be the same with the PRO version?

This is a great mod.  Thanks for providing it to the community.  I do have a permissions question though.  I'm wanting to only allow members to add links to a specific category.  The deny permissions work fine, but when I allow add link to my members, the option is not there.  This is in the permissions of SMF Links.

If I allow permissions to add links in the forum permissions, it allows them to add links to any category, which is not what I want.  I don't want to have to deny them permissions on every other catergory.  What am I doing wrong?
Title: Re: SMF Links (2.3.1 Released with SMF 2.0 RC5 Support!)
Post by: vbgamer45 on June 06, 2011, 10:34:20 AM
If you only want one specific category to add links you would need to use deny permissions on all other categories to get that to work.

Post by: Witchboard on June 06, 2011, 05:06:03 PM
Sorry for the confusion.  I was meaning the Category Permissions as in the attached image.  Also, are the permissions automatically propagated to sub categories, or do those need to be individually created?  I hope I'm making sense, if not, I'll just create a test account and play with them.  Thanks.

The membergroup must have the global permission Add Links, View Links etc whatever you set under category permissions in the normal SMF permissions in Admin -> Permissions in order for the category level permissions to work.

Go into Admin/Members/Permissions

I should note...I'm using the "Simple" view...as opposed the the "Classic" view.

Would also like to know the difference between General Permissions for this Mod and Category Permissions.

One last thing...

What template/file do I edit the catbg for categories?  (see attached image)

Thanks, in advance...

Under Classic  permission View the Edit and Delete Links should have radio buttons to edit own links or any link the same with delete. I don't believe the simple view shows the radio buttons.


General Permissions are global permissions. Category permissions override the global permissions. If you want certain membergroups to have different permissions such as viewing some categories or adding links or not adding links.

The file would be in themes/default/Links2.template.php

Another question...and hopefully, the last.  We all know how that goes, though...don't we?

Anyhow...I noticed for those groups that do not have the ability to edit link "Options"...the "Options" column still appears for them.

Is there any way to modify this so the "Options" column does not appear for those groups?

It's actually a great mod, vbgamer.  Like I said...it's very easy to install...setup...and use.  Some bling other mods use like thumbnail images...I could care less about.  The only thing I was missing on my site was an easy method for members to add links...and this has it ALL covered...hands down!

Thanks, for a great mod.

Well...one last question...I hope.  Didn't I say that before?

What template and what code do I need to modify to change the titlebg for the below image?  (see attached)

Basically...I want to change the text of the words "Sub Categories:", to black and change the background color for the header.


Thanks, in advance...

Update...

Nevermind...I found it and made the changes to the code, myself.  I guess I should look before I leap, huh?

The "comment" option that will allow viewers to post a comment about a link that may bring some useful info to them, or they can add their own opinion about the website.
I have done some research, and many "commercial" web sites have this kind of feature, which will also help to bring more viewer to the site.

did a quick test (full install v2.5) - seems to work fine but I get a session timeout when trying to save the settings in the admin section.
Okay, not a big deal to modify the values in the db directly.

then also I can't add permission

Addition:
Thinking of using description area for banners - it would be nice if this will also be counted because in current only clicks will be counted when clicking on the textlink...

Hi vbgamer,

I have SMF Links installed on my website, and for the most part it's great.  Two suggestions:

1.  Allow listing of links "Ascend / Descend"?  Right now the links are listed as they're added, which makes it a big jumble.  It would be nice if they could be alphabetically sorted like the categories. 

2.  In "Links Configuration" > "Category Permission List," it only lists two permissions even though I have about ten permissions set.  I know the permissions exist because when I delete one of the permissions that appear, another permission takes its place.  For some reason, the list only shows two.  See attachment.

The links table and links cat table using phpmyadmin under the operations tab

Hi VB,

I installed the mod without any errors. when I tried to apply your fix I changed all smf links 4 tables to utf8_general_ci but it did not work. I changed only the one you mentioned and it also did not work. when I create a category and give it an Arabic name all I get is ? ? ? ? ? ? instead?

I also noticed when I deleted this category I get this message

Fatal error: Function name must be a string in /Sources/Links2.php on line 507

I thought that it could be related to the name if category being just question marks. so I changed the name to english letters and tried to delete it but it gave me the same error.

please help

<a href="' . $scripturl . '?action=links;sa=visit&id=' . $row['ID_LINK'] . '" target="blank">' . $row['title'] . '</a>

This might work
<a href="' . $row['link'] . '" target="blank">' . $row['title'] . '</a>

SMF Links 2.5.3 Released for both SMF 1.1.x and SMF 2.0.x! Quite a few bugfixes were addressed for both versions, so it is HIGHLY recommended that you upgrade immediately. To upgrade, please uninstall the old version of this modification before attempting to install the latest version.

Here is the latest version's changelog which is fairly broad, and incomplete as a lot was cleaned up.
Quote from: SMF Links 2.5.3 Changelog
!bugfix: Superglobal variable substance checks implemented.
!bugfix: Some invalid XHTML cleaned up.
!bugfix: 2.0 queries now utilize proper sanitation methods.
!bugfix: session verification failed (SMF 1.1.x) due to $context['session_var'] (undefined in 1.1.x) being used.
