Retrieves descriptive titles for external posted links. Allows for better link recognition and, in theory, could help increase page SEO.
I recall this being requested somewhere, so I decided to take a stab at it. This is yet another feature offered in vBSEO.
For those unaware of what this actually does.. by default, when a URL is posted without a description it looks like:
With this modification enabled, it will now look like:
vBulletin.org Forum - The Official vBulletin Resource!
Download and import product-linktitles.xml via the Product Manager.
Enable the modification via AdminCP > vBulletin Options > External Link Titles Options (it is disabled by default)
There's really no magic here, it polls for titles using the cURL() function. If for some reason your host does not have cURL() enabled, you're out of luck.
From time to time you may notice the occasional link that does not get titled -- this is due to either the fact that the url is not active or it either timed out waiting for a response. By default, the system will wait for 5 seconds before timing out. If you wish to modify the timeout, you may do so via the AdminCP.
1.0.0 - Initial release, here's to hoping...
1.1.0 - Added the ability to blacklist specific domains from having link titles retrieved (configurable via the AdminCP)
1.1.1 - Wrapped returned titles in html_entity_decode(); to return properly decoded HTML characters.
