Links pass through phpBB3 page?

Post by najamd » Fri Jun 06, 2008 9:26 am

Hi Guys,
I was wondering if there is a mod, that allows all the links on forum to point to php page that forwards the user to the actual address.
Thanks!,

One way to do it is to make your own php page called linkthrough.php and which just has the code

Code: Select all

<?php
header("Location: $_GET[linky]");
?>
Then the links that you provide on your PHPbb forum should be linkthrough.php?linky=http://www.whereyouwannago.com

Or do you want links that people post to be replaced automatically? If so, it should be pretty easy to just add "linkthrough.php?linky=" to that!

sure, but then you'll need to edit the database, and the user can still get the info out of the link.
but to do it in another way, it would require some serious coding...
