[UPDATE] MyFaves v2 (SQL support)

MyFaves v2 (SQL and Cookie Version)

I've finally managed to get this done. This is still the original MyFaves plugin, *but* it now has the option for the admin to set the users storage of favorites to be saved in the database (instead of cookies). If the SQL version is defined, then it obviously needs the user to be logged in (they will get a login page if they are not already logged in).

Details are as follows;

http://www.linkssql.net/cgi-bin/myfaves.cgi
(running on cookie version)

or the directory to add links from;

http://www.linkssql.net/cgi-bin/page.cgi?d=1



Availability: Requires Purchasing
Price: $35 - << BUY >>
Links SQL Version Required: 2.1.2+

Requirements;

  • Links SQL 2.1.2+

  • Cookies enabled on the users side...[/url]

Does several things;

There are quite a few features in this plugin. The main one's I am proud of are;



  1. Span pages


  2. Automatic deletion of links from their favourites if a link gets deleted by the admin...


  3. Delete function


  4. Purge All function (i.e delete all their favourites)


  5. Obvious addition of links via one simple click...


  6. Language controlled, so there is need to hack the script if you want to change an error message...


  7. Template based, so its as easy as possible for you to make the pages look like your site :)


  8. Both MySQL and Cookie based option now (definable by admin)
    *new*

To purchase the script, please see the link on the previous page called <<BUY>>

If you have any queries, please let me know.

Current owners can download the new version from : http://new.linkssql.net/page.php?page=account

It is updated, I just havn't got round to updating the accounts script, so that it shows the new version. Just try downloading it, and you will see 2.0 is available Smile

Hello Andy,

Script is formidable...

I put myself a question.

It is possible to lay down a condition?

If <%fave_total%> = 0

Message 1

If <%fave_total%> = ou > 1

Message 2

Thank you for your assistance.

Yeah, just use something like;

Code:
<%if count%>
show stuff if they have favorites saved
<%else%>
show stuff for no faves being saved
<%endif%>

<%count%> holds the number of favorites they have saved. IF they don't have any, then it shows as 0.

Cheers

Great plugin Cool

I'd like to use the <%if count%> thing on standard (dynamic) LSQL pages, such as the login success page. Is that possible? (not out of the box, it seems).

You could use a global, similar to the below (untested);

Code:
sub {

use Links::Plugins;

# no point doing anything if we dont hae a username...
if (!$USER->{Username}) { return; }

my $opts = Links::Plugins->get_plugin_user_cfg('MyFaves');
my $per_page = $opts->{LinksPerPage} || 25;
my $save_type= $opts->{SaveType} || 'c';

if ($save_type eq "c") {

# grab the old list of ID's...
my $cut_up = $IN->cookie('IDList');

# now explode the list, so we can check this ID doesn't already exist...
my @sliced = split(/ /, $cut_up);
my $count = 0;

# count the links....
foreach (@sliced) {
$count++;
}

return $count;

} else {

return $DB->table('MyFaves')->count( { Username => $USER->{Username} } ) || 0;

}


}

Cheers

Can you try the modified version? Probably cos I didn't include the Links::Plugins module (the new one does). I would have thought it would be included when the script runs... oh well.

Cheers

Hey Andy,


Thanks for another great plugin, But I am having a small problem. When end user tries to delete all the listings, it shows an error


Oops, we had the following problem:

The ID you sent does not seem to be valid...


This is the tag I am using in myfaves_list.html page.


<a href="myfaves.cgi?action=remove">Click here to delete all the listings in your favorites.</a>


Can you tell me how can I correct this.

Thank you.

myfaves.cgi?action=delete&ID=<%ID%>

Nope.. I am still getting the error. :(

Also, I am not using the code in myfaves_link.html but I am using it in myfaves_list.html as I want to delete *ALL* the listings at a time.

You need to use;

myfaves.cgi?action=purge

... which will delete ALL their links, or....

...to delete a specific link, use;

myfaves.cgi?action=remove&ID=<%ID%>

(just tested both of these).

Cheers

Andy,
Could myfaves be enhanced to allow users to add link not in the my LSQL database to the list of links?

Re: [ccunet] [UPDATE] MyFaves v2 (SQL support) In reply to
MyFavLinks allows that, and allows a user to edit a link that is in the database, and turn it into a "custom" link as well.

I'm trying to see the differences between it and the bookmark system in 2.99 to see where it's different.

But it works on 2.x, 2.99(3.0?)
