Link Checker Bot [Link Detective]

Post by cynide on Fri Mar 14, 2008 3:36 am

Hello Admin/Mod and all forumotion members.

It is nice to apply a LINK CHECKER BOT for our forums. As Link checker script is applicable on PHPBB2/3 and lots of forums using it....
Even i have the script for it but still i cant use it on my forumotion forum, as we cant upload those scripts.

The whole script, is configured via the admin panel, so you dont ned to ftp into your script and change any details.


* Give Your Bot a Username To Be Displayed in its Comments and Post Replies and Pm's
* Enter The Percentage of Dead Links Before The Script is classed as Dead and Moved to the Bin Forum
* Enter The ForumID of Your Bin Forum
* Customise The Message and Topic TitleThe Bot Replies with When it finds a post with dead links in it. (You can also use (BOT_PERCENT) to have the script post the percentage set in his reply)
* Customise The Private Message and the PM Title The Bot Sends to the user when dead link are found and thread is moved. (You can also use (BOT_PERCENT) AND (EDIT_URL) to give the user the edit link to his post, if they wish to edit their links)

When a user submits their rapidshare links, the links are added to a database, which is checked via a cron script, which ive set at every 40mins.
When the script checks the links, it will then post a comment underneath the thread stating when it checked them and the percentage of dead links in the post, it will also give a visual representation of the validitity of the links as seen in the screnshot.
Also if you roll the mouse over the links it will give the exatc time in minutes from when it was last checked (e.g Links were checked 21 minutes ago)

If The script finds more than the set percentage of dead links it will automatically move the thread to te Bin forum setup in Admin Panel, it will also reply to the Thread informing the user the reason why it was moved etc

If tHE script does find the set amount of dead links, it will automatically PM the Poster leting them know instantly, it wil also provide a link for the poster to edit there links if they wish to, once the links are edited they can report it to a Mod to reinstate the thread.
The Message displayed within The Private Message, is setup via the Admin Panel.

So as you can see from the screenshots and descriptions above, the script is basically like WBB_LinkChecker, Im Still not sure wether or not i will release this script, spent a good amount of time on it, tho i do plan on doing a vbulletin version, which i WILL release here,
This script as with warez-bb's script is based on code by "Get Perpendicular"
Anyway hope you like the script, ill let you all know what happens depending on if i release it or not

Oh Yea The Script is Called.......

The Link Detective

PhpBB3 Screenshots






IF NEED THE SCRIPT TO EVALUATE, PLEASE REPLY HERE...
I NEED UR HELP REGARDING THESE SCRIPTS, AND I BADLY NEED THAT THE SCRIPT TO BE IMPLEMENTED ON FORUMOTION ALSO.

THANK YOU.

great explanation cynide,

thank you very much.seems very logical and useful.But it needs a poll as i see for voting.

i wonder why we don't have some standard phpbb boards features like login boxes, display previous topics, visual verification or this link detective?

hope our tech team will add them soon.

I don't think so. I have a site for soccer fans of my country and there are many links of videos and sites so it would be a great idea when a link is dead to be informed, and replace it. However the most users will use it for warez sites....
