    Default Links main page: don't show latest link, latest reply, links count, reply count

    If you want your links directory main page not show the columns for latest link, latest reply, links count, reply count, you can simply do this by editing two templates:
    ADV_LINKS
    adv_links_categorybit_level2

    The new code for ADV_LINKS is:

    Code:
    $stylevar[htmldoctype]
    <html dir="$stylevar[textdirection]" lang="$stylevar[languagecode]" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <head>
    <title>$vba_options[links_title]</title>
    $headinclude
    
    <script type="text/javascript">
    <!--
    	var VBA_LINKS_HOMEURL = '$vba_options[links_homeurl]';
    -->
    </script>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="clientscript/vba_links_global.js?v=$vba_options[links_simpleversion]"></script>
    
    </head>
    <body>
    
    $header
    
    $navbar
    
    $linksnav
    
    <if condition="$show['subdirs']">

    This is for Links Directory version 3.0 Gold, I'll update this if future versions will need some edits.

    You can see it in action here: http://www.feelinggood24.de/links/
    (has nothing to do with the blog with the long text at the top, this is another hack).

    Perhaps this helpes someone. I did't test it with different Links Directory settings, so if it doesn't suit your needs, just revert the two templates to go back to the original. But I think it should be ok for everyone.

    Hmm, probably I better should tell you the other way around ... what to delete out of the original templates ...

    In template ADV_LINKS delete:

    Code:
    			<td align="center" class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[last_link]</td>
    
    			<if condition="$vba_options['links_allowreplies'] AND $vba_options['links_showlastreply_column']">
    				<td align="center" class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[last_reply]</td>
    			</if>
    
    			<td align="center" class="thead">$vbphrase[links]</td>
    			<if condition="$vba_options['links_allowreplies']">
    				<td align="center" class="thead">$vbphrase[replies]</td>
    			</if>
    			<if condition="$show['modcolumn']">
    				<td align="center" class="thead">$vbphrase[moderator]</td>
    			</if>
    In template adv_links_categorybit_level2 delete:

    Code:
    	<td class="alt2" style="white-space: nowrap">
    		<div class="smallfont">
    			<if condition="$cats['lastlinkid']">
    				<strong><a href="$cats[lastlinkurl]">$cats[lastlinktitle]</a></strong><br />
    				$vbphrase[by]

    			<else />

    			</if>
    		</div>
    	</td>
    
    	<if condition="$vba_options['links_allowreplies'] AND $vba_options['links_showlastreply_column']">

    Thanks for this edit Larina

    I just want to remove the "links" and "replies" column

    but want to keep "last link" column

    Would you be able to help me out with this?

    and also I want to edit the "newest links" and "random links" section to remove the
    last reply column, replies column and the views column so the only column showing is category column.

    But to start with just the first question would be great to be able change

    Thanks
    Ryan

    Hi Ryan,

    I would need to test it, to be sure I am telling you the right. Sorry, to be honest, I don't want to make tests at my live-site since everything is running fine and there are people online.

    Hopefully I at least can help you with your first question ...

    Try NOT to remove the first part of each of those templates:

    In the 1st template:

    <td align="center" class="thead" nowrap="nowrap">$vbphrase[last_link]</td>

    In the 2nd template:

    <td class="alt2" style="white-space: nowrap">
    <div class="smallfont">
    <if condition="$cats['lastlinkid']">
    <strong><a href="$cats[lastlinkurl]">$cats[lastlinktitle]</a></strong><br />
    $vbphrase[by]
    <if condition="$cats['lastlinkuserid']">
    <a href="$vboptions[bburl]/member.php?$session[sessionurl]u=$cats[lastlinkuserid]" rel="nofollow">$cats[lastlinkusername]</a>
    <else />
    $vbphrase[guest]
    </if>
    <div align="$stylevar[right]">$cats[lastupdateddate] <span class="time">$cats[lastupdatedtime]</span> <a href="$cats[lastlinkurl]"><img alt="" border="0" src="$stylevar[imgdir_button]/lastpost.gif" /></a></div>
    <else />
    $vbphrase[never]
    </if>
    </div>
    </td>


    This should take care of your first question, but as I said, I didn't test it myself.

    It has taken me a long time to get around to doing this edit,
    and it has worked very well,
    My next mission is to edit the
    category view page, I want to remove the "last post", "replies" and the "views" column's?

    Thanks Larina for helping and taking time to explain the coding,
    It has all been tested by me now and working well,

    I would think that the next edit that I want to do should be just as easy?

    Any ideas would be a great help, even to tell me what template I should be looking in

    Thanks
    Ryan
