Links Manager II V 1.16

for osCommerce Online Merchant v2.2

This is a replacement for the Links Manager contribution located at http://www.oscommerce.com/community/contributions,1256. - Added code to includes/modules/links_listing.php and missing classes for sort heading problem with the standard listing box. - Added code based on code submitted by rabbitseffort that presents the link exchange information in the links submit page is an easy-to-copy format. - Added option to check for blacklisted words. The words are defined in a new setting in admin->configuration->Links. - Added option to disable reciprocal link checking for individual links. - Added a count option to admin->Configuration->Links that will allow links to be checked by the Check links script a number of times before the link is disabled. This was needed since some sites may not be working when the check is performed. - Added checkboxes to Links Status page to easily change status to Approved. - Added option of having nested categories. - Added option of having no categories (for display - one in admin still needs to exist). - Added code to check for the existence of at least one category in admin->Links Manger->Links. If not found, the code redirects to the admin->Links Manger->Link Categories page. - Added option to display link count, or not. - Added option to create a new category from within the links edit page. - Added link category name to the links page. - Added login option to allow link partners to edit their own links. - Added option to Featured Links so that a featured link will be displayed on all link pages or just on the one it is listed for. - Changed code so that the breadcrumb link has the session ID attached. - Changed code in admin/links.pgp so search function works as expected. - Changed code in admin/links.php to generate a normal link instead of an SEO one, which was causing some sites problems. If you want that ability, you should install Ultimate SEO with the update for Links Manager. - Changed links_db_update.php script so that it will update the admin->configuration->Links options while keeping the current settings in place. - Changed code so that the categories description is displayed as a true categories description on the page under the page heading. - Fixed search code so it finds the links from any page - Included fixes from partial updates and items mentioned in the support thread. - Removed extra code from links_check.php file to speed up checking. - Removed the code for the Rating option since it was never implemented. - Renamed to Links Manager II since the large amount of changes would cause support problems. - Made many small fixes and changes that are too numerous to mention. This is a full version. The support thread is at http://forums.oscommerce.com/index.php?showtopic=268562
