UBB.threads Links produces a Link Directory within your UBB.threads forum install. You can manage your links and categories from the UBB.threads Control Panel (modification of files required for embedding links to UBB.threads Links), and users can submit links to your defined categories (user submissions are checked against Stop Forum Spam, and must be approved manually from the UBB.threads Links Control Panel pages). Outgoing links are tracked and the system has logic to detect unique clicks only.

You can manage all of your link data, and allow your moderators (with user edit access to the Control Panel) to edit your UBB.threads Links data, via the Control Panel by installing the UBB.threads Admin Modification Menu and populating the link for the admin_adminmenu.tmpl admin_modmenu.tmpl files.

There are several script configuration options that affect behavior, such as displaying outgoing links, change the main page listing (top outgoing links, items with no category set, latest links, and categories only), set a max-height for images, and allow/disable user submissions.

 20211120 (November 20th, 2021)
Added: Ratings - Like many other popular link directory scripts we now allow you to let your users rate the sites you display. It is designed to be a member only feature, and was not developed to allow guests to vote.
Added: Users can now edit their entries, if allowed; some admin's may prefer to approve update changes and would rather be emailed about requested changes
Change: Language files have been reformatted and are easier to find what you're looking for.
Change: General code, language file, and query optimization and file cleanup
Change: Local URLs are now processed differently, making the code flow easier to work with.
Change: We're now using the built in make_ubb_url scheme vs the old in house scheme, things should operate more like UBB.threads
Fix: Several bugs related to the headings and page titles have been fixed
Fix: UserID's had not been saved for new link submissions and click counters, the duplicate link tracking should now filter excess clicks to pad hit counts.
