Contribution: Reciprocal Links

Recommended Posts

Reciprocal Links-2.0

 

This Contribution is a simple links mod for osC2.2.

It provides a easy way to exchange links, if you want something with lots of bells & whistles look at Links Manager II.

Clients can submit links that are approved in admin, administrators can also add, edit & delete links.

An automatic process in admin can check reciprocal links.

The screen shots folder has some sample page views.

Its a very easy install.

 

Modifications in this edition (2.0):

Corrected a number or errors in the code & language files.

Moved the 'submit links' section to its own page

Added error checking & display for every submit links input field.

Added confirmation of link submission.

Commented out the client side Google Page Rank (remove comment marks to show)

Commented out the client side Link_codes (remove comment marks to show)

Added function to automatically give a nofollow tag to all links not giving a reciprocal.

Added headers in admin plus extra fields for 'Link Found' status & date.

Added option to check all reciprocal links.

Added option to check individual links for reciprocal.

Increased field sizes to more suitable amount.

Hi Sam,

I've installed your contrib and I think it's great - but still buggy.

The links can't be confirmed by admin check since there's a undefined variable in admin/link_manage.php at line 25

	$check_phrase = LM_CHECK_PHRASE;

Only if LM_CHECK_PHRASE is replaced by the code that the customer has to add to his page, the link can be verified.

 

Thanks anyway,

Anton

Sorry, its just a missing instruction in the install, if you look at the language file you will find:

 

 

define('LM_CHECK_PHRASE',''); // Link check phrases seperated by a comma. Like 'osCommerce Online Merchant,www.oscommerce.com'

 

thats where you should set your phrases.

Someone has PM me regading SQL injection, this does use tep_db_prepare_input on all the fields, but it is possible to enter a sql despite that.

 

To fix after:

 

$error=false;

 

add:

 

 reset($_POST);
  while (list($key, $value) = each($_POST)) {
 if (!is_array($_POST[$key])) {
	  $_POST[$key] = preg_replace("/[^ \/a-zA-Z0-9@:{}_.-]/i", "", urldecode($_POST[$key]));
	} else { unset($_POST[$key]); } // no arrays expected 
  }

I must admit I though I had added that to the input field, seems I did'nt, to fix alter in link_manage.php:

 

Find:(434)

 

<td><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('url', $e_info['link_url']?$e_info['link_url']:'', 'maxLength=80 size=70') ?></td>

 

replace with:

 

<td><?php echo tep_draw_input_field('url', $e_info['link_url']?$e_info['link_url']:'http://', 'maxLength=80 size=70') ?></td>

 

:blush:

How would I make it so the links.php page shows the title of the "links category" it is in, rather than just the parent category header?

 

Right now, no matter what I choose under "Links of Interest" - my page header stays "Links of Interest". I would like it to change if I click on the Business Partners category so the page header would then say "Business Partners".

 

I have found tricks for doing this with the categories - but I can't seem to modify the code correctly to get it working with this contribution. Any ideas?

Assuming your using the latest, the code is already there, just not in the order you want.

 

you have

 

 

<title><?php echo TITLE . ' Links ' .(!$page ? '' : 'Page ' . $units[$page]). ' - ' . (!$cats ? (!$page ? '' : $categories[$category_array[$page]['id']]) : $categories[$cats]) . (!$page ? ' - ' : ''); ?> </title>

 

replace with:

 

 

<title><?php echo (!$cats ? (!$page ? '' : $categories[$category_array[$page]['id']]) : $categories[$cats]) . TITLE . ' Links ' .(!$page ? '' : 'Page ' . $units[$page]). ' - ' . (!$page ? ' - ' : ''); ?> </title>

 

Not tersted & I`m on the wine, so I may have messed!!

Duplicate Post!!

 

As is says, function not allowed in safe mode, ask host to change or..

 

Simply comment out the line like :

 

CODE//set_time_limit(300);

Hello Sir

 

Thanks for your pleasant contribution.

However I have edited the shop towards a fixed width of 778 with the Basic Design Pack by toybear,

Unfortunately all pages of your modification have "the old" dimesions, so it breaks out of the middle section.

Can you tell me how to correct this easily?

 

Thank you for your time

Best regards

Ashvattha

I know, it was ammiss of me, I`ve already done a fix, I'll upload new files tomorrow when I've time.

 

PS, 778 seems narrow when around 97% have a screen size of at least 1024 wide?
