PHP Link Directory RC4 is Released

    First of all, it seems this script is getting a good following going, so I hope it is okay to post. This is a big release because it adds the ability to make money with your directory by adding several methods of getting payments (thru PayPal) for links in your directory. Here are the details:
    www.phplinkdirectory.com

    New features:
    The most notable new feature is the support for paid links using PayPal. It is very flexible and offers a lot of options fully configurable in admin. Depending on your settings the users will be able to choose the following types of links when payments are enabled:
    - Normal paid link (reciprocal not required)
    - Featured link
    - Normal link with reciprocal (could have a different price)
    - Free link with nofollow attribute
    Every link type can have a different price or be set as free (only featured links cannot be free)
    You can choose to activate paid links automatically when the payment is confirmed (through IPN)

    Featured links. Links marked as featured are displayed in the directory above normal links. Users can submit a featured link only if the payment module is activated, otherwise a link can only be set as featured from admin

    Latest links and Top hits pages (self explainatory)

    Email notifications for administrators and link submitters. Notifications that can be turned on/off are sent when a link is submitted/approved/rejected or when a payment is confirmed.
    For link submitters the email messages are configured using templates you set your own. You can use virtually any field from the link table (I'll post latter more info on this). For admin notifications the preferences can be set on the Profile page.

    The reciprocal check method has been improved to insure that every submitted link has it's own unique reciprocal link.

    Import RSS feed (the mod is now part of the official distribution)

    Fixes:
    RSS feed special characters bug;
    fixed missing td tags when there was only one categories column;
    fixed max length for several fields;
    small bug fix that affects installations using php prior to 4.0.6;
    fixed sorting when URL rewrite is disabled;
    some other fixes that I don't remember now...

    Upgrading:
    If you are upgrading make a backup of your existing copy and then overwrite the existing installation with the new version. After that you MUST run the installer in order to upgrade your database. Nothing will be lost/overwritten. It will just alter the structure of the existing tables and create new ones. Also you can keep your old include/config.php file so you don't loose the database connection settings either. If you don't keep it just enter the same connection settings in the installer. You don't have to create a new admin user. Just leave all the fields empty on the admin user creation page and click next.

    Enjoy!

    I have taken a look at the directory script, looks great!

    Do you count the number of downloads of the script?

    Well, it does count the number of clicks on the download links which appears to be about 1500 (and that is all in the first month...actually less). :)

    Sorry to bother you like this, dvduval, but when I try to install the phplinkdirectory script, the installation process runs fine until the end - once it invites me to click to the admin panel, I hit the following error code:

    I had this with RC3 as well.

    I've unzipped in Windows XP and uploaded via ASCII, and when that didn't work, all in binary. Same error.


    Also, I tried registering at your support forums, but received the following error:

    Hi Brian,

    First of all, it seems clear the config file was not written properly.
    From the head developer:
    your account on the forum is active, so you should be able to login and participate.

    We are offering free support, so if you can get into the forums, we can help further.

    Thanks,

    There were a few bugs in RC4 but now all the major issues are solved, and we are ready to go final in a few days. :)

    thanks for everyone's support!

    Still looking to get started - not been able to get an answer from support there. Shame, as it looked promising.

    This is a great script. The only problem is that for some reason I can't get the challenge response to work. However, it isn't necessary anyway so I just turn it off. Otherwise it is very dependable. Thanks alot for making a great free product.

    I have also installed phplinkdirectory script to my couple of sites,it's really nice script and i will be installing to my other 10 domains. I faced just one prob that is suppose i make login for my site say "a" and if in the same browser i login again for my site "b" then it takes back me to either site "a's" admin area or where i submitted the link in my site "b"
    I don know whether you have understood my this prob as its quite confusing,anyways good job phplinkdirectory. I hope now people won't be using bizdirectory script, even i am not happy with it. I would reccomend everyone to use phplinkdirectory.

    The support is great -- however, the support forum is using Mambo and has a few bugs, one of which is that the forum registration isn't working. I suggest you PM or email dduval (thread starter) and let him know you're trying to register.

    I'm quite impressed with this script, it was a doddle to setup and I've only come across one error in the code (can't remember how I got it unfortunately, but one problem in a release candidate isn't bad going). The templates are pretty easy to modify as well, glad to see Smarty is being used.
