Directory Share has developed a variety of phpLD mods which we have decided to make available for other webmasters to use; completely free of charge. All we ask is that if you use the mods then you create a link back to this web site on your homepage / sponsors section, or at least include us in your directory (Our details can be found at the end of this page).

If you require support or have any questions relating to the mods below, please visit free phpLD mod page and leave a message.

Important: After installing any of our mods please ensure that you clear out your cache "/temp/templates" by deleting all files except "index.html".

Homepage Newsfeed

Allows you to display a newsfeed on the homepage of your directory to increase the content. Tested on all of the popular feeds such as Yahoo, BBC, ABC News, etc. The mod is very straight forward to install and configure, you can use any feed you wish and decide how many headlines should be displayed.

Developed and tested with phpLD v3.2.0

Random Quotes

This little addition to your site will allow you to display a random quote every time a page is requested. This is a highly effective method of introducing fresh content for the search engines, especially when operating a niche directory.

Developed and tested with phpLD v3.2.0

Latest Featured Links

A very simple mod which allows you to display a list of the latest featured links which have been submitted to the directory. The mod will display the number of featured links as defined under the administration setting "Links on top pages:" under Settings > Directory.

Most Popular Categories

Displays a linked list of the top 10 visited categories within your directory. The template can be customized to suit your directory and positioning of the top 10 list. The mod works with both rewrite enabled URL's and normal URL's as defined in your configuration.

Developed and tested with phpLD v3.0.6 and v3.1.0

Site of the Day

Allows you to display a "Site of the Day" on any of the pages you choose. The web site is randomly selected from the database; with each day loading a new site. An example of this mod in action can be seen on our homepage. This mod is very straight-forward and easy to install, just download the zip file and follow the install.txt contained within.

Developed and tested with phpLD v3.0.6 and v3.1.0

Split Category Links

Split up the category links on your details page and increase your internal linking structure. Normally if a user submits to the category "Business » Investing » Other", the details page will display a single link back to that category. Install this mod and instead, your details page will generate a link for each sub category. One for "Business » Investing » Other", one for "Business » Investing" and one for "Business"!

Developed and tested with phpLD v3.1.0
