Compatibility with XenForo 1.5, minor code improvements

This upgrade is recommended for all customers who want to use XenForo 1.5. All other customers do not need to upgrade (but it won't harm, if you do)

We are very proud that XenForo decided to include almost exactly our professional way of title detection into the core product. This part of the add-on will automatically be disabled if you use XenForo 1.5 or higher but still work with XenForo 1.3 and 1.4.

Changelog:

NEW: Automatic deactivation of title detection if XenForo 1.5 is installed

NEW: Compatibility with XenForo 1.5.x

Upgrade Instructions:
Upload everything from the "upload" directory into your web servers forum directory.
Install "addon-wmt_linksessentials-10x.xml" in your Xenforo ACP.

We strongly recommend to use the "File Health Check" tool from your ACP after updating to check for any errors!

What's New?

  • Automatic deactivation of title detection if XenForo 1.5 is installed
  • Minor code improvements
>Version 1.0.1<

We are still working at a huge update for this add-on (more screenshot providers, code optimization and favicon support) but it is not ready for prime time now.

This is why we release a small update for the product helping one of our customers who experienced a minor bug with detecting the domain name in the title of the linked page.

We also added a small new option to disable the detection of domain names in title strings globally. While we try all we can to correctly detect the domain name in the title string, we cannot guarantee it can always be detected sucessfully. There are simply to many possible language encodings. So, if you have many links to complicated non UTF-8 languages, you can deactivate the detection now. We however do recommend to have this option activated.

Update Instructions:
Please upload all files from the "upload" directory in our package to the root of your XenForo installation. Also run the update XML from your ACP. We recommend to use the "File Health Check" tool from your ACP after updating to check for any errors.

Thanks for using our add-on!
