Recently (the provider of website thumbnail images for vBadvanced Links Directory) changed their system and code for thumbnail images, which has caused these images to stop working within vBa Links Directory. We have just released vBa Links v4.2.7 (for vB4) and v3.3.2 (for vB3) to address this and update the code. For anyone using to display website thumbnails in their links directory, we recommend upgrading as soon as possible. Once you have upgraded, you will need to go to and register an account there to obtain an API key. Once you have obtained your API key, you can login to your vBulletin Admin CP and go to vBa Links Directory => Modify Settings => Options and enter your key in the first setting there to get your thumbnails working again.

Upgrade instructions are the same as usual and may be found in the readme.html file in the download package.

Problems or Questions?
If you have any problems or questions regarding the new release, please post them in the vBa Links Directory v4.0 support forums. Please to NOT reply to this thread for support.
