Hey everyone,
 
It has been a while. I do not use my commercial VLD license and checked with Vlad and it can be sold. He can transfer to new owner. It will be necessary to pay $39.95 renewal fee for updates. I am looking for $80 for license. Please let me know if you are interested.
 
Thanks, Brian

Another great FREE mod for vldPersonals from Ramil, the webmaster of vldCrowd. This MOD was tested on version 2.5.3
 
DEFAULT PAGINATION:
 
When a member does a search on your site, the default pagination shows up below the search results. The problem is, members will get caught up looking at the pictures and forget the page number they are on. Nor is there a Next or Previous button to guide them.
 

 
My members wanted a better way, so the following guidelines came from Ramil's Pagination Mod.
 
DOWNLOAD FILES
 
To change the default pagination we need to download a file to upload. The download link is:
 
http://www.filipina-lady.net/test253/ext.upgn.zip
 
(note: if you downloaded ext.upgn.php from vldForum, this is an updated version you would need for this mod)
 
Unzip the folder you downloaded and inside you will find the source file:
 
- ext.upgn.php
 
Upload ext.upgn.php to includes/ext folder.
 
CHANGES TO LIB FILES
 
In include/lib folder make the following changes to lib files.
 
OPEN lib.pictures.php FIND:
 
//------------------------------------------------
// Assign misc values
//------------------------------------------------
$TEMPLATE->assign("global_pictures", $pictures_obj);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pages", $totalpages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("pages_info", $pages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("current_page", $page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page", $previous_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page_link", $previous_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page", $next_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page_link", $next_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pages", $totalpages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pictures", $totalpictures);
$TEMPLATE->assign("page_links", $page_links);
 
AFTER $TEMPLATE->assign("page_links", $page_links); ADD:
 
$TEMPLATE->assign("hash", ($hash ? $hash : '') );
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_by", $orderby);
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_dir", $direction);
 
OPEN lib.blogs.php FIND:
 
//------------------------------------------------
// Assign values
//------------------------------------------------
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_entries", $totalentries);
$TEMPLATE->assign("globalblogs_entries", $entries_obj);
$TEMPLATE->assign("pages_info", $pages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page", $previous_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page", $next_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page_link", $previous_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page_link", $next_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pages", $totalpages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("page_links", $page_links);
$TEMPLATE->assign("current_page", $page);
 
AFTER $TEMPLATE->assign("current_page", $page); ADD:
 
$TEMPLATE->assign("hash", ($hash ? $hash : '') );
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_by", $orderby);
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_dir", $direction);
 
OPEN lib.videos.php FIND:
 
//------------------------------------------------
// Assign misc values
//------------------------------------------------
$TEMPLATE->assign("global_videos", $videos_obj);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pages", $totalpages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("pages_info", $pages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("current_page", $page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page", $previous_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("previous_page_link", $previous_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page", $next_page);
$TEMPLATE->assign("next_page_link", $next_page_link);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_pages", $totalpages);
$TEMPLATE->assign("total_videos", $totalvideos);
$TEMPLATE->assign("page_links", $page_links);
 
AFTER $TEMPLATE->assign("page_links", $page_links); ADD:
 
$TEMPLATE->assign("hash", ($hash ? $hash : '') );
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_by", $orderby);
$TEMPLATE->assign("order_dir", $direction);
 
LANGUAGE
 
You need to add the following to lang.core.php file in the includes/languages/your language folder.
 
"next_page" =>
"Next page",
 
"previous_page" =>
"Previous page",
 
"first_page" =>
"First page",
 
"last_page" =>
"Last page",
 
STYLING
 
Depending on your preference you will add one of the following styles to your template site.css.
 
CLEAN STYLE
 
Text
/* -------------------------------------------- */
/* ------------- Pagination: Clean ------------ */
/* -------------------------------------------- */
 
#pagination-clean li { border:0; margin:0; padding:0; font-size:11px; list-style:none; /* savers */ float:left; }
/* savers #pagination-clean li,*/
#pagination-clean a { border-right:solid 1px #DEDEDE; margin-right:2px; }
#pagination-clean .previous-off,
#pagination-clean .next-off { color:#888888; display:block; float:left; font-weight:bold; padding:3px 4px; }   
#pagination-clean .next a,
#pagination-clean previous a { border:none; font-weight:bold; } 
#pagination-clean .active { color:#000000; font-weight:bold; display:block; float:left; padding:4px 6px; /* savers */ border-right:solid 1px #DEDEDE; }
#pagination-clean a:link,
#pagination-clean a:visited { color:#0e509e; display:block; float:left; padding:3px 6px; text-decoration:underline; }
#pagination-clean a:hover { text-decoration:none; }

DIGG STYLE
 
Text
/* -------------------------------------------- */
/* ----------- Pagination: Digg Style --------- */
/* -------------------------------------------- */
       
#pagination-digg li { border:0; margin:0; padding:0; font-size:11px; list-style:none; /* savers */ float:left; }
#pagination-digg a { border:solid 1px #9aafe5; margin-right:2px; }
#pagination-digg .previous-off,
#pagination-digg .next-off { border:solid 1px #DEDEDE; color:#888888; display:block; float:left; font-weight:bold; margin-right:2px; padding:3px 4px; }
#pagination-digg .next a,
#pagination-digg .previous a { font-weight:bold; }     
#pagination-digg .active { background:#2e6ab1; color:#FFFFFF; font-weight:bold; display:block; float:left; padding:4px 6px; /* savers */ margin-right:2px; }
#pagination-digg a:link,
#pagination-digg a:visited { color:#0e509e; display:block; float:left; padding:3px 6px; text-decoration:none; }
#pagination-digg a:hover { border:solid 1px #0e509e; }
 

SEARCH_RESULTS.TPL
 
First, we will focus on the template search_results.tpl. Depending on the style you added to site.css, you need to make some changes to ext.upgn.php file.
 
CODING FOR CLEAN STYLE
 
OPEN ext.upgn FIND:
 
$output = "<ul id=\"pagination\">";
 
CHANGE TO:
 
$output = "<ul id=\"pagination-clean\">";
 
IN YOUR TEMPLATE OPEN search_results.tpl FIND
 
<div class="footer">
<p>{lang:"pictures","page_numbers"}</p>
{page_links}
<div class="clear"></div>
</div>
 
CHANGE {page_links} TO THE FOLLOWING CALL:
 
{upgn:tp=total_pages,pn=page_number,hs=search_hash}
 

 
CODING FOR DIGG STYLE
 
If you want to use DIGG style, add the appropriate CSS code to site.css and make the appropriate change in ext.upgn for that style.
 
$output = "<ul id=\"pagination-digg\">";
 
Use the same call as above in search_results.tpl to replace {page_links}
 
DIGG style looks like:
 

 
TEMPLATE CALLS FOR PICTURES.TPL, VIDEOS.TPL AND BLOGS.TPL
 
So far the only template we made changes to was search_results.tpl. For pictures.tpl, videos.tpl and blogs.tpl, the same instructions apply that were used for search_results.tpl except you use a different CALL. Use the following CALL to replace {page_links} in each template.
 
{upgn:tp=total_pages,pn=current_page,hs=hash,orderby=order_by,orderdir=order_dir}

Hi all,
 
For my new site I would like to use the premium template which is for sale at http://vldthemes.com/. Unfortunately my money is running low and I am looking for a cheaper version.
 
Do you wish to sell your theme? (No illegal stuff please)
 
Thanks, upfriends.

Seems that vldcrowd has become a dream for spammers.
have not been here for a long time now and when I logged in, I see.
 
Seems that this site has been abandoned and no activity at all.
sad because when the previous owner took care of the site was a hive of activity here.
 
I say hello to all my friends here and feel free to comment ;)
wish you all luck and success of your vldpersonals projects.

Dating & Marriage Logo

We do not offer a english version (unless on matrimo.com ), we wonder if our logo is fine enough on our Romanian marriage website http://www.casatorie.ro // casatorie means marriage or wedding in Romanian // and it is very good and serious keyword domain name.
 
Actually we herited this logo from the previous owner. In your opinion, should we keep this logo or should we change it ? It seems nice but quite big...
 
Thank you.

Events play a large part in my site. Currently the Admin adds events and members can sign up to them.
 
I would also like members to be able to invite other members to one of these events.
 
I noticed this was suggested as a feature a couple of years back but from what I can see nothing was ever updated. Has anyone managed to achieve something like this already? Or does anyone have any suggestions on how I could go about implementing it.
 
I'm thinking something along the lines of:
 
Member visits someones profile page.
Link on page 'Invite to Event'.
Choose event from list of upcoming events.
Creates new message to the user, with default text '<username> has invited you to attend the event <event name> on <event date>.
Message also includes 'Click here to sign up' which is a link to the signup page for that event.
Send message.
