[ NEW PLUGIN ] UserProfiles v1

I'm pleased to announce the release of our latest plugin, UserProfiles. The details are as follows:

NB: This plugin is part of both the "ULTRA" and "ULTRA PRO" Packages

Price: $30 [ details ]

Plugin Description

This plugin lets you link to a .cgi script (or /profiles/USERNAME), so people can view the LinkOwners "profile". On this page, you can display any of the information from your glinks_Users table. For example, <%Username%>, <%Status%>, and also <%Number_of_Links%> (ie how many links this users owns, that are "active"). It also gives you the option of showing these links (limited to 100, to save on resources, if the user has a lot of links =)), and link to them. I would imagine this being of quite a bit of use on Classifieds sites (i.e "show other products by this user", or anyone who just wants to show the links someone has submitted, and link to them.

Plugin Requirements

  • Gossamer Links 3.0.0+
  • User_Edit_Profile (optional, as it will let your users edit their profile)


  • Show a "LinkOwners" profile
  • Show the number of links they have (view <%user_Number_of_Links%>)
  • Show their links on their profile page (only shows 100 on the page, in case they have hundreds of thousands of links =))


I've setup a demo on our site (with our template set- the plugin comes ready to work with the luna template set) : http://www.ultranerds.com/profile/admin This is using mod_rewrite. You could also call it via viewprofile.cgi?user=xxxx

As always, if you have any questions - please don't hesitate to ask (here, or via email/PM)
