Download here ...

It's funny: earlier this week I came here looking for this script. There were links to the home page then. Now they are gone.


Notice the project's admin is "huntseek" and not "destiney".


Huntseek indeed: clicking on this person's profile leads us to the link we need:

Excellent System - Feature Request
This is one easy script to set up and use, plus it works! Yea!!!

One thing I didn't notice however when I set it all up, did the conversion of over 3,500 categories and 800 links...

There is no way to Mass Eamil all valid submitters..
PLEASE consider adding this feature?

If I had a clue, I would do it..but I'm no PHP programmer, not even close.

Thanks for a great package!

Problems everywhere!
I tried the report problem but sending to site admin's is greyed out and wouldn't select. I downloaded the program sucessfully and viewed about 1/2 the pages of the main site of -
http://phplinks.org/

but I really need to read the docs which are supposedly here-
http://docs.phplinks.org/
and these 2 both as well
http://board.phplinks.org/
http://cvs.phplinks.org/

only give this error-
Cannot find server or DNS Error
Internet Explorer

AND I emailed webmaster@phplinks.org like the site says and it bounced back with no mail.phplinks.org. So it seems everything is obviously defunct but i'm hoping some kind former user of this has a copy of the docs they could send me? I would SOOO appreciate a peek at the docs! Can anyone out there help me out? PLZ!?
Send to k at kiersten dot cc.

If you have the docs but can help at all with setup I'll accept whatever you can offer! Thanks so much ahead of time :)

This rocks!
I was about to spend almost $200 on a script that does exactly what this one does. I had phpLinks up and running in less than ten minutes. Very very clean configuration.

Would like to see more plug-ins and modules. Anyone want to sink their teeth into this project?

phplinks
This seems like a great project. I use bk2site (http://freshmeat.net/projects/bk2site/) currently for my site (http://www.nachoz.com/) (~1400 links) and it works pretty well. The one feature that it lacks that I'd really like is to be able to have an automated user submission feature. Anyone out there able to read a netscape bookmark file so I can import mine?? :)

No column exists to store any link status data. There is a script that checks links though. There are no plans to begin storing this data.

Already exists, as described above.

I don't know, sounds like a new feature all around, I'd add new scripts to admin if it were me. I don't think very many people would us this though. And as it stands a web server is not the best thing to use to check links. PHP's fopen and fsockopen produce unreliable results a lot of the time.

Works fine for me. I checked it out via tracert.com (http://tracert.com) and I can hit if from most anywhere in the world in 14 hops or less.

http://phplinks.org/downloads/src/phplinks_2.1.2.tar.gz (http://phplinks.org/downloads/src/phplinks_2.1.2.tar.gz) works fine for me and a few icq friends I had check it as well. Maybe it's your isp or the dns servers you are using that is the problem.

I host my own DNS, and it appears to work fine when tested. I had a couple of friends send me a few test messages and they all arrived. MX records appear to in order.

Don't know what to tell ya...

Future Enhancement?
I currently manage a collection of links in the Ham Radio space. It has 4500ish links.

I use PHP and MySQL to manage the presentation. Frankly I think you have done a heck of a job with your user interface. It is far better than mine.

I was reviewing the tables and I don't see a way to mark a link as valid or not. Let me explain what I do. In the Ham Radio space, there are lots of clubs and individuals. They are always moving their sites around. Before I jumped into the space, there were tons of link lists out there and 30% of the links would be bad. So I decided to validate each link each week. I added to my tables a "FailCount" and "LastValidationDate" fields. I have a small perl script that validates the links and increments the FailCount if the site link is invalid. I reset it to zero if it goes from invalid to valid. Once I have checked it 26 weeks, I stop bothering to even check.

When the site access the database I've added to the select statements "and failcount = 0". This way the links are there in case I come across it someplace, I know it is bad and I only show links I can get to..

Would it be possible to add the concept of an invalid link to phplinks? If you don't have the time, or the inclination, can you tell me what files I would need to tweak in order to add it to your 2.1.2 version.

Couple other things:

1) Your support board site seems to be down.
2) The download links on your home page only worked when I added a www.
in front of the URLs you have listed.
3) You should have your ISP check your MX records in your domains DNS.

Thanks for your time

One of the best
A few words to encourage the hard work made here. I've seen a lot of similar tool as phplinks, but phplinks is the best. I have tested the last version and it seems better than ever.
Thanks for that soft.
