Can someone please tell me why I cannot submit a link on this site?

http://www.fitness909.com/links_submit.php

 

The test page with their link up is http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

Our link cannot be found on http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html.

 

But the link is there.

 

Also, I'm a little confused as to what to put in the admin section for the link information...does it have to be exact on the test linked page?

 

Also, in the admin on versions 1.4 and 1.5 both show Link "Check Result: Error Reading URL" when checking an individual site. When checking all the listings we get big red "X"s even though the links on listed on the other site and when you click "continue" after this check in the admin it takes you back to the admin/links/links page and doesn't show you all the checked links listed.

Please explain your question: 'what to put in the admin section for the link information." Do you mean in the configuration->links setting or in the links edit page. They are both in admin.

I have www.fitness909.com in the configuration/links/links check phrase.

 

I add his link to my test page www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

When I try to add my link at his site www.fitness909.com/links.php it keeps saying that my link is not up when it is up at www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

ADMIN problems:

I was told this use to work but now it doesn't so my only guess is that something updated on the server like php is 4.3.9 or mysql 4.1.20 has changed the way the links manager works.

 

Then I started checking sites that use to work also as I tested them and now I get the same problem no matter what links manager version I use.

 

I'm lost here.

For the first problem, I am assuming the other site is using Links Manager. If that is the case, he has some value in configuration/links/links check phrase, just like you do. If that value is not found on your site, the link will be denied. So it may be that his Links Manager is not set up properly. All you can do in that case is contact the other site and explain that his link is on your site and ask why his site is saying it isn't, in a nice way, of course.

 

As for the other problem, I only support my versions. If the problem is in the version you are using, i can't help you. If it is in my vesion, and everything is set up correctly, then it is probably a server related issue. If you eidt one of the links in admin, does it find the link then? I'm sure you have done it, but be sure the link you are checking is a full link (http://...).

I have the 1.14 version that you provide support for on www.bandtobow.com

 

I just tried to submit a link and I can do that.

 

Then I went into the admin and when I try to check that one site link I get this at the top of the edit menu:

Link Check Result: Error Reading URL

 

http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

 

You can look at my personal site there and see that www.bandtobow.com is there and linked up and this is the check phrase in the store admin.

 

When I click the "check links" button to check all links it puts a red "X" in front of all the links. I checked out the reciprocal link and in some cases changed the check phrase for that reciprocal site and I still get the same error messages.

 

Would you please post the direct contribution link with the date that is yours as it is very confusing to know which one to get and I will try it again on bandtobow.com?

 

Shouldn't your contribution work even if the server is updated for security updates?

Jack,

 

I started over with your 1.14 dated June 22, 2006.

 

Now I get this error in the store admin when trying to check links:

 

1054 - Unknown column 'l.links_category_suggest' in 'field list'

 

select l.links_id, ld.links_title, l.links_url, ld.language_id, ld.links_description, l.links_contact_email, l.links_status, l.links_image_url, l.links_contact_name, l.links_reciprocal_url, l.links_category_suggest, l.links_status, l.links_rating from links l left join links_description ld on ld.links_id = l.links_id where ld.links_id = l.links_id and l.links_id = '36'

 

[TEP STOP]

 

I ran the links_db_update.php file with success.

 

There is not an sql file with this contribution. Do you have one with all the tables and listings listed?

 

Thanks!

I ran the links_db_update.php file that said with success so where are these tables?

I found an old sql file with version 1.13 and added the db fields but really would be nice to have an sql file that goes with the contribution download.

 

Still the same problem in the store admin when checking individual links:

Link Check Result: Error Reading URL

test page with config link on it

You can see that the link is definitely on my test page.

 

In my client's admin the check phrase is:

Band To Bow

 

At the www.bandtobow.com/links.php page to submit a link I put these:

site title = test for bandtobow

URL = http://www.designhosting.biz/

Description = testing for bandtobow link exchange

Full Name = Melinda Odom

Email = info@designhosting.biz

Reciprocal Page = http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

and get this error:

Our link cannot be found on http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html.

 

So now my client cannot exchange links with anyone at this time.

 

Could you please respond?

 

Also, on my server in the /etc/php.ini I have fopen set to "On".

 

I am having the very same problem as an earlier post on page 52 of this thread:

LINK SUBMISSIONS FROM MY SITE

The link submission process returns the error "Our link cannot be found on"...whatever website I put it on. I have tried four of my own sites.

 

CHECK LINK IN ADMIN RETURNS ERROR

I have 6 links set up and when I hit the "Check Link" button, every one returns this error "Link Check Result: Error Reading URL"

 

I have tried with another site of mine and have run into the same error. "Our link cannot be found on http://blahblah" even though it does exist.

 

So I turned off the requirement for a recipricol link and the link submission from the site went through. However, when in Admin-->Links Manager--->Links, I click on the "Check Link" button and an error is returned that says "Error reading URL".

 

Something is wrong here. The whole purpose of having the link exchange is to check whether your links are up on another site. I had to turn off the reciprocal config setting also other wise nobody could even submit a link on www.bandtobow.com/links.php

 

So now the same error in the admin on checking the links and the reciprocal link config turned off to even be able to submit a link at all. With the reciprocal link in the config turned off then you cannot use the other features in the admin when you click edit on each site.

 

I don't know what is happening. I'm not running any outrageous php or mysql software either on my server so could you please check the code for these problems?

 

Also when you go here http://www.bandtobow.com/links.php and click on a category no link listings show up. If I do a search for "baby" 2 links will show up so what happened to these links being listed in each category?

 

Thanks!

My version that you said you tried has the database file in it - I just looked. I don't know why you are not able to see it. As for not being able to find the link, you state the settings on your client site and the link you posted on your clients site but you don't say anything about the link on http://www.designhosting.biz/. I went to http://www.designhosting.biz/ and searched for "Band To Bow" but couldn't find it. So it seems your clients script is working as it should.

The link I have on my site is www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

What am I missing?

 

What version and date is your contribution? The one I have, 1.14 dated June 22, 2006 does not have the sql that I can find. Is it someplace else? There is not an sql file in any of those contributions that have your name on it.

 

You don't seem to understand what I am saying.

 

To allow people to even submit their link to www.bandtobow.com/links.php I have to turn OFF the reciprocal configuration setting in the store admin. If I DON'T turn off the reciprocal configuration setting in the store admin then nobody can submit their link because it says the link is not found as evidenced by this:

"Our link cannot be found on http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html."

 

I have turned the reciprocal link ON and removed my domain test page from the links section of the admin if you would like to test this yourself here:

https://www.bandtobow.com/links_submit.php

 

Put http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html in the reciprocal box and then see the error. Then go to my link and you will see clearly that the links are there for a reciprocal link like I have said in my previous posts and the "check link phrase" is correct.

 

I will be happy to give you a login so you can test this for yourself. There is something wrong and I am having the same problem with any store that has this link exchange on it as I've checked today and also as the other person on this forum has posted.

 

If you support your work then please take this serious and read my posts...there is a problem.

 

I did say something about my test page where the link is in the previous post:

At the www.bandtobow.com/links.php page to submit a link I put these:

site title = test for bandtobow

URL = http://www.designhosting.biz/

Description = testing for bandtobow link exchange

Full Name = Melinda Odom

Email = info@designhosting.biz

Reciprocal Page = http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html

 

and get this error:

Our link cannot be found on http://www.designhosting.biz/test.html.

Funny how you always talk about "you only support your version" but when someone has problems with "your version" like the other person who posted the exact same problem you don't answer their questions with complete answers nor are you willing to even test the problem out to find the solution.

 

If you have your name on it then you should support it. If you don't want to support your contribution they why have it?

 

It gets pretty frustrating when you cannot reply to questions and/or give vague responses like:

My version that you said you tried has the database file in it - I just looked. I don't know why you are not able to see it.

yet you have not listed your version nor the date of it in the contributions section. I chose 1.14 on June 22nd because that was the last time your name appeared.

 

Maybe you will help the other person who has the exact same problems I am experiencing but doesn't look like it as you haven't responded to him either. Only leads me to believe you don't know how to fix the problems.

Is there a way to add nested catagories to this mod?

 

I would like to be able to add other catagories under a parent catatgories etc.
