Links SQL 2.1.0 Available along with TemplatePack!

We're happy to announce that Links SQL 2.1.0 is now available in the download area along with a template pack that includes updated av, mint, simple, snap and yahoo template sets. With version 2.1.0 on, we will no longer include those templates as part of the main distribution to keep the install size smaller.

The major changes in version 2.1.0 include:
  • A PHP front end to Links SQL. This is not a wrapper, but rather all user side features are now implemented entirely in PHP. The program can also use real PHP templates instead of Links SQL templates, making it easy to integrate into any existing PHP site.
  • A built in review system. Links SQL now comes with a full featured review system which allows such features as: anonymous reviews, validated reviews, review "helpfulness", review ratings, review summary chart, and much more.
  • Built in support for MySQL and MS SQL full text indexing. You can now use the power of your database server to index and query your Links SQL database.

Links SQL upgrades are always free, and if you'd like us to do the installation, please contact us to setup an installation date.

If you happened to download Links SQL 2.1.0 earlier this week, there is one minor change that affects changing links manually to not validated. Otherwise, it's identical.

Links SQL 2.1.0 will be required for the upcoming Gossamer Community (our central authentication solution that will tie all our products together with a common user database).
