Default Link Directory for GARS 2.1.8m

Link Directory for GARS 2.1.8m (Demo It)

Turn a forum into a link directory, where your members can make comments about a website and enter a URL to said website, whereby if a screenshot of that website exists, it will automatically appear as a thumbnail. If no screenshot is available, a default image will appear. See this GARS add-on in action here.

For those that are upgrading to this version, please note that a new setting for the thumbnail extension has been added. Check the README file for further details. Also, please note that this add-on is not supported, but you may find answers in the previous version's release thread here.

Special thanks to for providing free private or commercial use.

GARS 2.1.8m and up is the required version for this add-on. PHP settings required:
  • allow_url_fopen = on
  • safe_mode = off
Not every host allows those PHP settings.

PS: Folks, please do not start sending PMs to me with login information unless asked to do so. This add-on is not marked as supported.

For forum prefixes and the link directory see

For alternative thumb service providers see

You must first click Install before you can download this add on.

Thanks, I inadvertently picked the wrong custom field for the online demo is all. Should be fine now.

Is your GARS images directory writable? Did you FTP the default.jpg image into the GARS /images/misc directory?

Funktioniert leider nicht (Does not - without function)

Die folgenden Fehler traten bei der Verarbeitung auf:

1. Es trat ein Fehler beim Hochladen auf:

* Die Datei hat kein gültiges Grafikformat. Wenn Sie eine Grafik anhängen wollten, überprüfen Sie bitte die Richtigkeit der Datei. Möchten Sie keine Grafik anhängen, benutzen Sie bitte die richtige Dateiendung für diese Datei.
2. Error1 generating image
