RE: link directory...can someone make this?
I think you can just change the permissions of the forum to disallow searching in it (you can still use XThreads' inline search, though it may not be as effective).
Using blank search templates will have a side effect of fewer search results appearing on each page.

RE: link directory...can someone make this?
I've updated the Link Directory sample.

1. Remove xtld_forumbit_depth1_cat template.
2. Set Yes in Hide Forum setting for Link Directory.
We can hide the category (forum type =c) directly now, so, we don't need the xtld_forumbit_depth1_cat template any more. Please remember that we need to use the newest XThreads version (v 1.7) for this. Thank you very much Yumi for the update, and Lee for bringing up this Smile

RE: link directory...can someone make this?
Has anyone figured out a way to automatically add a screen shot thumbnail to the left of the links?  Something using thumbshot.com would be really cool!  I have an example installed on my IPB board...

Scroll down to see the thumbshots added to the left of the link banners.  The Link Plugin adds them automatically using thumbshots.com's free service.

@ RocketFoot: I never use thumbshot before. But if you know how the thumbshot URL schema to receive the thumbnail, just edit xtld_forumdisplay_thread template.

Like Lee said, I use another thumbnail service for that:

Or, you can use Lee's method:

RateU, your's looks like what I want to do...is there a detailed tutorial to make one just like yours?  (I'm really not that good at php and stuff...LOL) Ange  I can use any thumbnail service, not set on thumbshots.

Find this code in your xtld_forumdisplay_thread template:

HTML Code
<td align="center" class="{$bgcolor}" width="100">&nbsp;</td>


Replaced the code with:

HTML Code
<td align="center" width="1" class="{$bgcolor}">
	<a href="{$thread['threadlink']}" target="_blank"><img src="http://www.iwebtool2.com/img/?r={$mybb->settings['bburl']}/&amp;domain={$GLOBALS['threadfields']['xtldwww']}" alt="{$thread['subject']}" title="{$thread['subject']}" style="width: 120px; height: 90px;" /></a>
</td>


I've changed the width and height for the thumbnail. If you want the default width and height, remove the width and height value from the img tag.

RE: link directory...can someone make this?
Please remember that sometimes the thumbnail service need a "time" to "capture" your link for the first time, if the link isn't cached yet by them. So, sometimes you need to wait for 10 - 15 seconds and refresh the page to receive the thumbnail. This only happens for the first time you submit the link and the link isn't cached yet by them.
