  1. Links Directory

    Someone who pays for a link can't choose where it goes. And the admin can't choose the sorting criteria of the links. Oh well, I guess all those link php scripts that have been selling for years were wrong and you're right. I'm sorry I mentioned it!

    How can you say that you don't see value in this? the weight option has been used for decades in php link scripts. Obviously the submitters have no say in the weight of a link, only the admins. (perhaps the default weight is, say, "5"). Since all new links get 5, the app sorts them using the default method. However, when the admin changes the weight of a link, say 99, that link will appear first on the list. 0 appears last, and so on.

    Fair enough about the categories. As for pinning the links, sure, that's a workaround, but still rather limited if you've got several pinned topics, since you won't be able to choose the order in which they're listed. Not to mention that you could also have some links which you'd like to see listed last, and there's no way to do that. So I think this could be a pretty interesting new feature.
  4. Links Directory

    I recently renewed my license and am now considering installling this on another site. I've got a couple of questions / suggestions. 1) At present, I don't think it's possible to add a link to more than 1 category. There are many scenarios where this would be pretty useful. Imagine mine was a coding site, and I had links to sites of great ipb coders, and had classified them in different categories, say... languages. Portuguese, English, Italian, whatever... If I add a coder and his site to one of those categories, say Portuguese, I'd have to create another link in the English speaking category, and possibly more categories! (Not sure if this is even possible at present, because the old app detected the url and said that a new link couldn't have the same url as an existing one. Even if were possible to have 2 different links sharing the same url, this would still be a bit messy, because when it came to ratings, the votes for the same link in one category could be different from those in another category, and so on. Of course this is just one of many possible scenarios, this happened to me all the time with the 3.4.2 app. 2) I don't think this is possible at present either (but I could be totally wrong!). I'd like links to have a "weight" value. Thus, the ones with more weight will be at the top and listed first. Admins can change the weight manually. Why? basically, I think it makes a lot of sense to put paid links at the top of the list. And when there are no paid links, I would also like to see some links listed first, maybe because I honestly think they're the best, perhaps because they're other sites of mine (and it makes little sense to see my own links listed on page 4!), or for whatever reason. Perhaps a more technical word than "weight" would be "link positioning".

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

    I decided to uninstall my previous version, as many of the links were outdated anyway. (from applications-> out of date applications) Then I tried a new fresh install. But this is the error that I'm getting: 2C133/4 The application you are attempting to install appears to be installed already. To reinstall the application you must first uninstall it.

    No reason! I thought maybe you couldn't upgrade from 3.4 to 4.2 (as in 4.2 being the version for ipb 4.0, 4.1).
  8. Links Directory

    Where can I download version 4.1 or 4.2? I'm running ipb 4.2 but upgrading from 3.4.
  9. Could you please reply to my messages? I think I deserve the support that you promise in your description. I contacted you here and at your site a few days ago. No reply whatsoever. What kind of support is this? can I get a refund?

    Does anybody know if this works for IPB 4+ ?

    It won't be completely white, but mostly white, yes. I was thinking of "painting" the background area where the text appears in some other color, but probably not very practical as depending on the user's screen resolution, it won't match the correct area. Being able to change the link color instead would be very useful indeed!

    Thanks Tom. The message appears in black, but all the links are displayed in a white+shadowed font.

    Thanks Tom, much appreciated! Only thing left is that the hyperlinks in the text message still appear in white color.

    Just purchased this. Very impressed at all the features and how easy it is to change most things. ​ Quick question: in the announcement section, there's some white text "Welcome, Member Why not check out our new content? Also, view your latest notifications and messages." How do I go about changing this text´s colour? (I'm using light images on this section, so it can hardly be read)
  15. Perhaps the word "crowdsourcing" is not the most appropriate, as we're discussing much smaller amounts than the average, but in my experience, this is what often happens: 1- User a wants xx idea to be implemented and is willing to pay for it. He requests a quote (estimate) 2- Estimate is presented (not always, but often privately) by coder b. 3- User a asks around if anyone interested in the mod would be willing to chip in. Everyone says: "no, but I'd be willing to pay xx$ bucks once it's done." (yeah, right, me too, it's so easy once it's done!!) 4- User a pays the full amount (only way to see the mod take off). Since coder can't sell any copies for the original production price, price goes down dramatically or mod is released for free (not much else the coder can do! this is perfectly understandable). 5- User a needs another mod. (Go back to 1.) 6- User a goes bankrupt. (and has to turn to free BBs?) 7- User a would like to chip in to see some ideas get developed, but there doesn't seem to be a way to achieve this... I wish there was a mod like Michael's donation mod that would faccilitate some kind of mini-crowd sourcing to see smaller projects take off. Both the coding community and the comunity of IPB users would benefit from this...
