Links Directory is an application that provides your community with a member driven web directory. Allow members to submit websites for approval in categories you define. Users can comment and rate on other member’s submissions. You can also mark websites as official affiliates, fostering traffic between friends.


  • Submit links to websites along with a title, description, and an image generated from extensible APIs available on internet, free and paid. You can also save the image locally, which will reduce the API call. Image is updated when you update the link. Admin can choose if new links are moderated, per category.

A great addition to any site!  Adriano does great work and this app is proof of that.  Plus, Adriano is quick to respond to any questions and support needs.  When I see his name on something, I automatically trust it will work and if something goes wrong, I know he'll address the issue quickly.  He does not make you wait forever for a response and that's worth it's wait in gold.  You can't go wrong with supporting Adriano's work.

Have not used this app much yet, but I wanted to write a few words about the author, Adriano Faria.

I had a problem refreshing the cache after updating this app.  Adriano helped me recover my site even though the error had nothing to do with his app.

He was also extremely responsive with a small bug I found.   I will not hesitate to purchase more apps from him.

Links Directory is an essential application for anyone operating any type of thematic community. It provides members with amazing added value. I'm very happy I bought it. Also, as a coder, I can tell you that Adriano's coding is very very clean. Nice work.

This program is worth its weight in gold! Good work Mr. Faria, the customer service is great, as usual, you walked me through the process step by step. Small reminder, not all are computer techies here, I know it is easy to get lost in the thralls of making cash and technical mumbo jumbo - but all consumers of this wonderful product are not technicians, but rather simpletons who really like the work; don't forget us when describing something to us. This product adds the right touch to the community as it allows for affiliate links and gives the members a chance to post their own sites up in a community setting; just phenomenal work; Mr. Faria just shut up and take my money!

Recommendation: Okay, Just take my money!

All in All: 5/5 stars! Great product! Mr. Faria, you have earned this consumer's medal of gold standard, you are both professional and polite with your work, even the small stuff. I appreciate you taking the time to show me step by step, and actually coming over to help me when I need it. Again as a consumer, we are in large, not programmers, so it is nice to be walked through the process! Your work is GREAT! Just amazing and worth every penny.

Very well made and essential addition to any wide-ranging community. I reported a bug with the API and Adriano fixed it within days, also offered a temporary solution before the update was released. Awesome.

I spent a lot of money buying his modules to end up being disrespected. He tells me I didn't give you permission to email me.


Response from the author:

Learn to respect the terms you agreed when you purchased the resource and don’t send 2 messages + a status reply in 10 minutes then you may be “respected”. 

Thank you for purchase anyway. 👍
