Name: ubb.links v7.3.1a

Description: Adds a links script to your site, integrated into your forum's styles, members and permissions

Demo: http://www.praisecafe.org/forum/ubbthreads.php/ubb/links/op/Links.html

Installation: DL and unzip the file. Upload the folders to the corresponding folders within your forum (ie: all files in the "scripts" folder should be uploaded to your forum's "scripts" folder).

If you are installing new, you're either going to have to manually create the tables using the code in admin script or wait until version 7.3.1 where the fix will be in for that.

If you are upgrading from Josh's 7.2 version, you're going to need to update a table's column's name:
Code
ALTER TABLE ubbt_links_categories
CHANGE title cat_title varchar(50)


Author: Plethora (see credits) - Mark Summerlin wrote the original (TLD) code 4-5 years ago, but not much is left of his work smile

Original post updated: 7.3beta released - now you can do the web install if you haven't installed it before - the create tables routines were moved to a new file - to be safe delete after installation. I also fixed many xhtml issues in the admin area, a few bugs related to category titles, and added zarzal's german language file translation.

To upgrade if you've already installed just upload the files (skip the install file).

Thanks. Submitting the sortorder in the admin section dont work (seems to have no effect) and if it returned from submit sortorder to main the layout is confused.

The nav breadcrumb seems to have a problem in the first sublevel: Index Fun

2 new bugs, thank you smile

Sortorder probably has to do with changing title to cat_title, I'll look at the navigation too smile

The sortorder on the main category never worked for me. In every version it was broken.

Your "submit" page should use the CSS from threads; I can't say much about you "light theme" guys, but let me tell you, white submit boxes on a dark background looks YIKES!

Also, when I go to make a submission, the category dropdown shows a blank entry at the top...

Additionally, once i submit a link, the page has a weird grey background; I'm guessing some bugglet in there that also throws off my table display.

The blank entry at the top is intentional, so people will click and choose one instead of the default. smile I do need to update some css classes, and I've fixed a good number of html errors in the cp in my local version. I'll post it shortly smile

OK, updated original post to current code - fixed the cat sort order, optimized some more code and fixed lots of xhtml errors in the cp again.

Still need to fix the breadcrumb error, css class issues and the stats at the bottom before we can get much into the 7.3.1/7.4 version smile

Anyone else getting charset issues? I have the little diamond questionmark on my UTF-8 install...

i'd recommend setting a language entry "Please Select" vs having it blank... else you get confused as to why theres a blank item wink...

The "diamond" shows when there is a characterset conflict; you can test it here

Looks nicer. Submitting of the sortorder works now but on my links main page it have no effect. My categorys stuck everytime in same same order. Can it be that I have an very old db and missing some fields in it? Can this be?

I don't see any 'diamonds' on your links install. Not sure how there would be any characterset conflicts since it takes the charset from the forum settings.

Thanks Zarzal. Maybe it's a caching issue, have they changed yet? I believe if you are able to set the order in the cp, then your database should be up to date.

The problem with the old way of setting the order (and the reason the changes never worked) was the original code was written back when people were using php 3 and 4 series - HTTP_POST_VARS has been deprecated for quite some time now and the command didn't mean anything for current versions of php - I used $_Post to get it running.

Those would only be viewable by the admin and why I couldn't see them on your site. They're symbols used by the original author. They don't throw errors at w3.validator.org, I'll update them on the next version. smile

7.3.1 (released 6/30/2008):
- fixed invalid html characters - Thanks Gizzy!
- added link submission sanitization - Thanks Yarp!
- minor code cleanup

Because of the sanitization addition/correction, everyone is urged to upgrade.

To upgrade from within 7.3.x, just upload files. For earlier versions follow info in first post.

Thank you, Allen.

I still have a sort problem. I attach some picturs. In picture lin1 you see my sort order in the admin section. In link2 you see the output of the main page. I can change the sortorder but it have no efect to the mainpage.

In picture link3 you can see 2 problems. It is a screenshot of inside a sub section. on the right side you can see a table problem in the layout.

Also I note (visibe in link3 too) that the statistic on the bottom count each section. In a subforum without links you count 0. Should this be that the counter is per page?

Not sure what to say, it works on 2 different installs for me. Are you running php5?

And you are correct on the stats. It needs to be updated.

Most likely, we'll be pulling this apart and seperating the pages into their own scripts with their own templates. Right now we're running into conflicts trying to run it all from one script.

Just noticed the note about the seperate file; I think the install docs need to mention they need to access it as:
ubbthreads.php?ubb=links_install

I also found a bug... When you're viewing the main index without any categories, it throws an html error which skews the tables for ubb

Yeah, I haven't looked to do anything with that error - if you don't have any categories you really haven't finished installing it yet smile I guess we could add a "General" category with the create table functions, but most would change it anyways.

I was thinking the images didn't look right, so I nuked them from my install, it doesn't look half bad now (clicky)

Also, AA, if you use tab's instead of spaces for separation in your files, you can cut out a lot of unneeded space... Check my example attached...

Most likely we'll be changing the design of the categories to more closely match the design of ubb.threads forums - being able to have an unlimited/random number of columns is pretty much guaranteed to have html errors like zarzal is seeing for some sites. It's pretty much impossible to make it work for everyone.

Yeah, I used to do that, but it's generally recommended by the php/zend people to use tabs of 4 spaces - just so it's the same for everyone - some people use 2 spaces for tabs, others use tabs of differing sizes, others use 6 or 8 spaces for tabs. I can look it up on the zend site, but it's been a while and I just set it to 4 spaces and forget about it. smile Any part I've tabbed on is set to 4 spaces.

You're probably right about the images, it's one of those left-over things from the original code. They'll probably go away as we move closer to the forum-look. smile

I look at the formatting merely as what's being used in terms of keystrokes vs how zend feels about things wink...

As for the images, they're a smidge larger than the text, so it was causing me some grief... I don't really see much of a use of them for what I'd use it for; so reguardless I'd edit them out.

I moved the spaces to AFTER the previous entry vs in FRONT of the entry as it makes visibly looking for items a little easier.

I set my tabs to equal 4 spaces, it's no more keystrokes smile

Where do you mean moving the spaces? For subcats or ?

There is more keystrokes though...
One tab is One character.
4 spaces is 4 characters.

Odd zarzal, not sure what to tell you. When you do a

SELECT * FROM ubbt_links_categories

does cat_order match up with what you are seeing in your links control panel?

I know what you are trying to say... I used to be able to shrink photopost's filesize by half just by removing trailing spaces and converting leading spaces to tabs. The php/zend people recommend 4 spaces for each tab, so... you might bring your beef up with them and let me know if they make changes in those recommendations smile
