  • Support for notifications such as new links and comments on user links.
  • Ability to follow/like categories and individual links.
  • Unlimited categories of links, plus unlimited depth of parent-child relationships
  • Category Icons
  • Drag & drop reordering of categories in the ACP.
  • Per-category permissions to show category, view links, submit links, add comments, and avoid approval queues
  • Provide “link back” code so other websites can link back to yours.
  • Mark links as official affiliates and display them in a different section on the Links Directory index
  • Integrates into IPS4 Moderating system, which all commons permissions, such as pin, unpin, delete, feature, move, etc.
  • Per-category Permissions allowing you to specify which permission sets are allowed to view category, view links, add links, edit links, comment, rate, and avoid moderation at a granular level.

I've removed two posts from this topic as there's no need to allow a support topic to descend to what is not far off insulting. Lets try to keep it civil. Thank you.

Next version will have an option to manually upload the thumbnail, if you're using any API: Commerce integration too. ETA: A month or so.

OK. Will do it. 

Yes: Actually, I've made a clean in a lot of things that I thought was not necessary. But this and a few other things I decided to keep but all of them are perfectly removeable by settings.

I will release 5.0.2 probably during the weekend but yet without Commerce integration... still untested as it should. New features: Type of Content field: Admin will be able to choose betw

Impressive knowledge of your product and Invision! It worked. Thanks!

Next version. It will be availabe next week. I'm finishing the Commerce integration (you will be able to charge for link submission to monetize your site).

I like to leave things as an option to the admin. So I added a new setting per category:   If enabled, the address field will be available to the user when submitting/editing the link:

A map would be great, using the Google maps API?

Seems to be a server issue according to ips so don't worry about this one, thanks

Sure. Sent you a PM with credentials. You are admin/mod, so you can see the Admin CP too.

I’ll take a look.

The address itself don’t; the text of what you selected yes. This is fixed and I’ll release a new version yet this week.

There’s no space there to add custom fields but if you want to edit your template, use $link->customFields() or something like that. Take a look in the view template. 

Because $cfields comes from the php. In indexBlock don’t. My bad   Have you tried?  -------------------- @Bluto, try: {{$fields = $link->customFields();}}  

Works perfect.  Thanks @Adriano Faria  For anyone else looking to use link directory extra fields in other places / templates (inside the links app). {{$fields = $link->customFields();}} {

You better use same size for all icons. You can see the last one is smaller.  But I’ll take a look in next version. 

It’s a language bit. Change it in ACP -> Customization -> Languages.

In a future release, would it be possible to have an option to turn off the duplicate link protection? I'm working on a project which duplicate links isn't an issue.  I couldn't find any settings

OK. I’ll post here within an hour (when I reach my PC).

You have to edit a file in order to allow same URL: It's in my TODO list a setting to this. A new version must be out until the weekend.

That’s not how it works. I can only sort by one column and it is rating. Number of ratings do not count here. Same happens in Downloads, etc.

I need to see if I can make a workaround. I’ll let you know tomorrow. 

Yes. I can see the "wrong" sorting in downloads as well https://invisioncommunity.com/files/category/163-utilities-and-stats/?sortby=file_rating&sortdirection=desc 

Then I won’t take a look. It’s a core thing. I mean, probably a workaround can be applied somewhere but I rather do it properly following IPS pattern.  I’d suggest you create a topic in Feedback

@Unlucky, when I tested Screenshot machine awhile ago, it does not allow HTTPS websites on their free plan. It will return "Unsupported" https://www.screenshotmachine.com/apiguide.php

Many thanks @Adriano Faria - after giving you ACP access everything is working perfectly now and going down well with members. Great app and support.

I'd say so, it works fine for me. I never tried their free version first, though, but I too was going to suggest that maybe having the free version was why your screenshots didn't work.

Even didn't delete the files in the uploads folder, the column in DB is null, which makes the API to grab the image again. That's how it should work. I'll take a look in delete files from UPLOADS

Ok, I'm dropping the PAID links feature and will add a Package module. New version yet this week.

I have a buddy of mine next to me. I told him, watch this, I'm going to have to edit the template 😉 I win! Okay, I'll start digging. Any chance you can point me... Nah, never mind, I'll go in and play

Thank you! It's a pity that I cannot react 10 times with "thank you" I would do 😃

Yes, it can. I can provide a file edit to remove the field requirement if you wish.

It's and editor like any other across the suite. All you have to do it click twice in the image and resize it.

I'll take a look next week when I have to release a new version... if that's something that will demand too much work for now, I'll do it.

Sorry.... my fault.  I figured the extra field problem out right after I posted my inquiry. Thanks.

Working fine now. It was probably a temporary issue.   

The first error probably comes from a resource I’m working. Tks for letting me know.  I just moved you to Links group. You are now able to view the forum and Tracker category. 

Thanks for replying.  I've already found another way to do what I want without using the gallery widget at all.  I just had to look a little deeper.  Sorry, for bothering you with dumb questions.

Didn’t start to work on a new version yet, sorry. 👍

That’s possible but I don’t understand what you mean by “quits”. I have no idea what you mean with this: I’ll try anyway. The link image and thumbnail has always its path updated when you

@Adriano Faria Can i have acces to your test site so i can have a play with this app please ?

I’ll release a version next week. Fix, if required, will be included in new version. 👍

Disregard, kept deleting and recreating and all is good.  I think I had to create a category that is generic (outside of the club) and once I had that category, I could create usable categories within

I love this app, I will be buying it soon!

I'm having so many problems with other applications on PHP7... a lot of them paid applications.  Nice to have on that works without an issue!   Thanks again for the wonderful app, get investment

No, as you also can’t have a topic in two forums or an image in two albums, etc. This is a core thing. 

Tx @Adriano Faria nice improvements !

Probably. Report this in the tracker please, I'll take a look when I have to release a new version.

It uses the ipsButton_normal style: <a {{if settings.links_linkview == 3}}target="_blank" {{endif}}{{if settings.links_nofollow}}rel="external nofollow" {{endif}}data-action="clickCounter" href

Edit the template links -> front -> view -> view.

There is no Featured Links widget. You mean the block in the index where you enable via settings? If so, it's random, which is better than a static list of records.

Every page load, as it isn't a widget. 👍

Sorry @Giray, my bad. I have this on a custom version for a client. Just added this in the new version: Should be out in a couple of days.

Wonderful application.  Works great on Nginx w/ PHP7.  Nice addition to the advertising system.  A++

Thanks, so after a few hours Miniature did re-generate the thumbnail. @christopher-w unfortunately the free options are very hit and miss. Sliders and interactive boxes on websites seem to blank

It only works using a square size, like 120x120: I don't see anything wrong in the API code. I must be something in the provider.

Notice: maps will disappear from your links. Reason: This is for 4.1.13 users.

So far: - Settings:   - Category:   - Permission per group:   - Post Screen:

What's New in Version IPS 4.1.18 Compatibility version (quick edit of link title on Link view).  

Thanks so much for pointing that out I was searching in the "edit" mode and in the admin CP... sorry for being stupid...

In the link view? Yes, it's possible but I think most people want to see the image on a higher size. Also, it wouldn't store the hit, which is fired by clicking in the button. So I don't think I will

Yes, it's a feature of IPS4, not specific from this app. Go to ACP -> System -> Advanced Configuration -> Friendly URL or something like that.

It seems that in the end it was an issue on my part. Everything seems to work now. @Adriano Faria was more than helpful with support. Thanks.

I can do some testing next week on this also. Thanks!

Yeah, it seems something has changed; it shows that you rate X starts of 5 but when you reload the page, it doesn't save and shows as it has no rating. Anyway, there won't be a new version for 4.1.X.

Thanks @Adriano Faria looking forward to the new version. I'm going to setup a dev site for 4.2 in a day or two and can test out the new version for you if you're still looking of testers.

I am. Let me know as soon as you can test it.

The 4.2 is available for tests in support board.

Didn't know there was a tracker.  Sounds good.  I'll report it there. How do I signup for that?  got it.

Ok, I'll change it in next version.

Btw, an account is created on my Support board (via Marketplace API) for those who buy (from now on) this (and Classifieds app): http://www.sosinvision.com.br/ips4/ Credentials: Username: same use

The API has access to what a guest see, so probably will show the login screen.

Good to know you will take a look at it for a future version. Can't wait to update to 4.2 and then this app too very pleased with it.

I have the 4.2 version for this apo for existing clients. If you buy it, you'll have an account created automatically in my support board, where you will be able to download the 4.2 version to test. 

I don’t have a Thumbshots paid plan so if you want me to test it, please send a PM with details and I’ll take a look tomorrow in the morning. 

Not currently. I’ll take a look for a future version. 

Right now a user can purchase a link in a category and once they purchase that link, it remains in the links directory forever (one time cost). I'm using the paid links option for 1 category call

I’ll rethink this for the IPS 4.3 version.

Guest won't submit as they don't aren't a member.

I will release 5.0.1 today later.

My official reply to you is: they can't. Maybe in a future version I can review this. For now, I won't change this.

Ok thanks for considering and trying to help 

Go to ModeratorCP -> Deleted Content and delete it definitely there.

Ok, clear now. Just test on my online board (using phone) and I can’t  see a deleted link as a member. I’ll retest tomorrow in the morning when I reach my PC.

I can confirm the issue on Top Hits widget. Will release a new version as soon as I fix it. There won't be a "group permission". It will be like all other widgets: if you have permission to view t

I'm not saying your application is bad (yes it works), just the 3rd party thumbnail providers and I was trying to add my "2 cents" to the topic as well as my use of the rebuild tool. Just in case anyo

On my way friend keep up the good work

Ah, that was my issue. Thank you very much. And by the way, great support response time.

Seriously, @DieselMinded, what part of this text you don't understand?     I won't reply anymore.

There's a 4.2 version available for the purchases in my support board to be tested. The file on marketplace will updated when 4.2 is released. 

What's New in Version 5.1.0: Compatibility with IPS 4.2 - DO NOT USE IT ON IPS 4.1.X

Ok, didn't know that. Will take a look closer.

Upgrade to IPS 4.2. After that, upload the new version of this app.

Never mind. After a few more tries, it decided to work. :-?   Cheers.

I checked your fix and it is working now . Thanks for your support - problem solved

No change in APIs were made; only template edits. Anyway, I just tested on my site and they are offline too. We're on a weekend. They are free services, etc. Probably they are in maintenance.

Yeah thumbnail generation is not working, and when it is there are loading issues with trying to fetch images and failing. I've switched to manually uploading now. So it's ok

would it be possible to add a Google Maps (GEO) custom field?

Not sure how. There's no address field anywhere.

EDIT: the APP supports Extra Fields. You can use them. Not sure if that type is available on Core.

I've added the app as a top level menu item but am getting a 500 error when trying to access it - the URL it's going to is ~/index.php?/links/

Have you tried to clear the cache or even restore the menu and publish it? Seems to be a cache issue.

If you don't know how to do it, PM me with ACP access and I'll take a look.
