phpLD Tools & Addons

Discussion in 'Directories' started by SilkySmooth, Feb 23, 2007.

    Hey,

    I have just started my first phpLD based directory, currently using the most recent stable version of the script. So far I am pretty impressed with the features etc but can see some room for improvement. I am a PHP programmer by trade so will likely made some mods to the script.

    I have seen a few members around here mentioning mods that they use and was curious about what the most popular mods are for phpLD.

    If you use a mod, what is it for?, where did you get it? Custom coded or purchased? And more importantly does it actually do the job it was designed to do?

    glad to see more people make them!

    Dan makes some kickass mods, witch a lot of people use.. those are the ones I do use

    altho I think a few good new mods for phpLD (2.0) would be great.

    well you see .. Dan's mods are in a big list on his site so i bought a membership once and now i download all the ones i need...

    an0n here is the custom developer.... he gets the thing to you done the best way there is ....


    u kno you get what you pay for ... so yeah.


    if it were me ... i would want a change in the link detail page to the site's title name ... like instead of /detail921 ... i wud like /genuine_paid_directory

    or something like that be done for free or like a cheap amount or some site where u can just pay once and enjoy the mods.

    Ok, I have spent some time this weekend coding a fairly straight-forward mod and have just released it on the web site. I decided to go for something small first of all to get some feedback on the install instructions, etc.

    So please, whether this mod is useful for you or not, I would appreciate any and all feedback, good or bad. This will help me while preparing the more complex mods which I am working on.

    - Site of the Day (Free phpLD Mods)

    Allows you to display a "Site of the Day" on any of the pages you choose. The web site is randomly selected from the database; with each day loading a new site. An example of this mod in action can be seen on our homepage. This mod is very straight-forward and easy to install, just download the zip and follow the install.txt contained within.

    If anyone finds any bugs or has any questions please let me know here. Also I am currently working on a mod for displaying an RSS feed and a couple of other new ideas which I have of my own. If anyone else has any requests please let me know.

    Is there any mods allow bulk submission?
    We know paypal charges a small fee for each transaction $0.3 + 3%.
    If submitter wants to add multiple links, it is better to be charged for siteowner just one times fee.

    Hi xc06,

    I have not seen any mods for that, I am not sure it would be very popular because it would increase the amount of spam a directory receives from non paying submitters.

    If enough people request it though I will certainly look into it further.

    Would it be possible to put thumbnails on the home page for the site of the day?

    Here's my code in site_of_the_day.tpl:

    {strip}
    <h3>{l}Site of the day{/l}</h3>
    <table><tr>
    {* show page rank *}
    {if $smarty.const.SHOW_PAGERANK}
    <td>
    {include file="pagerank.tpl" pr=$sotd.PAGERANK}
    </td>
    {/if}

    <td>
    <a id="id_{$sotd.ID}" href="{$sotd.URL|escape|trim}" title="{$sotd.TITLE|escape|trim}"
    {* nofollow *}
    {if $sotd.NOFOLLOW or ($sotd.RECPR_VALID eq 0 and ($smarty.const.RECPR_NOFOLLOW eq 2 or ($smarty.const.RECPR_NOFOLLOW eq 1 and $sotd.RECPR_REQUIRED eq 1)))} rel="nofollow"{/if}
    {if $smarty.const.ENABLE_BLANK} target="_blank"{/if}>
    {$sotd.TITLE|escape|trim}</a> <span class="url">- {$sotd.URL|escape|trim}</span>

    {if !empty ($search) or !empty ($uid)}
    <p>{l}Category{/l}: <a href="{$smarty.const.DOC_ROOT}/{$sotd.CATEGORY_URL|escape|trim}" title="{$sotd.CATEGORY_TITLE|escape|trim}">{$sotd.CATEGORY_TITLE|escape|trim}</a></p>
    {/if}

    <p>
    {$sotd.DESCRIPTION|escape|trim} -&nbsp;[<a href="{if !$smarty.const.ENABLE_REWRITE}
    {$smarty.const.DOC_ROOT}/detail.php?id={$sotd.ID}
    {else}
    {$smarty.const.DOC_ROOT}/detail/link-{$sotd.ID}.html{/if}" title="{l}Read more about{/l}: {$sotd.TITLE|escape|trim}">{l}Read&nbsp;more{/l}</a>

    {if $smarty.const.REQUIRE_REGISTERED_USER == 1 and !empty ($regular_user_details) and ($regular_user_details.ID == $sotd.OWNER_ID)}
    ,&nbsp;<a href="{$smarty.const.DOC_ROOT}/submit.php?linkid={$sotd.ID}" title="{l}Edit or Remove your link{/l}">{l}Review{/l}</a>
    {/if}
    ]
    </p>
    </td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    {/strip}



    What will I change to include a thumbnail of the site?

    Thanks

    Hi sweetangel,

    Sorry I couldn't reply to you, I have been traveling for the past three days, and thanks for following up with how to do it anon.

    Glad you got it figured out in the end... I will be back with more mods later this week.
