Summary


UBB.threads Links produces a Link Directory within your UBB.threads forum install. You can manage your links and categories from the UBB.threads Control Panel (modification of files required for embedding links to UBB.threads Links), and users can submit links to your defined categories (user submissions are checked against Stop Forum Spam, and must be approved manually from the UBB.threads Links Control Panel pages). Outgoing links are tracked and the system has logic to detect unique clicks only.

You can manage all of your link data, and allow your moderators (with user edit access to the Control Panel) to edit your UBB.threads Links data, via the Control Panel by installing the UBB.threads Admin Modification Menu and populating the link for the admin_adminmenu.tmpl admin_modmenu.tmpl files.

There are several script configuration options that affect behavior, such as displaying outgoing links, change the main page listing (top outgoing links, items with no category set, latest links, and categories only), set a max-height for images, and allow/disable user submissions.

Development by James Corthell (Gizmo/Gremelin) of VNC Web Services.
