Link Back before submitting?
Anyone know how to make links check for a required-link back to your site "BEFORE" they can have their site submitted to your directory?


A user submits his site, and links then quickly checks his submitted page looking for a pre-defined URL that you told them beforehand they must place on their page as a link back.. If its found, their application is submitted.. If not, it tells them they must supply a link-back to us before submitting.

I thought this had been done before, but cant seem to find any mention of it anywhere now.

CEGlobe has written a Reciprocal Link checker mod, which is in the (surprise) Mod section of this site. I have not used it, but it looks like you should be able to start with this code to get at what you want.

The Immuatable Order of Modding
1. Read the FAQ, 2. Search the board, 2a. Search the board again, 3. ask the question, 4. back-up, 5. experiment, 6. rephrase question (or better yet, post solution to original question)
