About This File

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: Sneak.pw, WebThumbnail, Thumbshots (requires an API Key) and Upload field. 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.
  • Submit comments to links. Admin can choose if new comments are moderated, per category.
  • Rate links using the star rating system used throughout the IPS4. Per category setting.
  • Integrates to Share Links to share or email inks.
  • Ability for users to report potentially offensive content or broken links using the built-in Report Center

  • Supports item marking, allowing your users to see what links have been added or commented on
  • Integrates into Activity Streams.
  • Supports the built-in tagging system including prefixes.
  • 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.

It was developed on PHP 7. :thumbsup:

Tested on 5.6.

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 for my forum.  :smile:

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 am unable to edit the link on your demo site, is that right?

You are moderator. You should be able to. Anyway, there's a forum there where you can post bugs & suggestions.

What happens to you? Any error?

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.
