X1TP XDownloads4 (xdownloads.co.uk)

Post by SS_T » Mon, 17. Jun 13, 17:12

>> Go to XDOWNLOADS4 <<

(x1tp.com) (xdownloads.co.uk)

I've decided to create a new topic for XDownloads3 as most of the guides and links are out of date now.

XDownloads was designed to be a mod database for EGOSOFT games, its database contains 2.7GB worth of files which is actually 1307 downloads. It covers EGOSOFTs 6 games:
  • X: Beyond The Frontier & X: Tension
  • X2: The Threat
  • X3: The Reunion
  • X3: Terran Conflict
  • X3: Albion Prelude
  • X4/list]

    Most of the files were actually uploaded by myself which took a long time, this was to make XDownloads popular so that mod authors would start uploading their files. We have about 8 regular uploaders at the moment, but I hope to get more.

Added a search box which uses google search engine. Searching is still not very good but it can be helped if users use the Meta descriptions and Meta Keywords box when editing their download to produce better search results.

I'm looking into getting a automatic meta generator.

So do I keep your link listed as is for now?
Or do I remove "Temporary".

I've coded something to help with searching by using the file title in the meta description.

More work done:
  • better searching, added download title to meta keywords.
  • Have to generate a manual site map due to my existing site map generator being incompatible with Joomla3 at the moment.
  • Joined Project Honey Pot
  • Added Disallow: /index.php/summary/ and Disallow: /index.php/finish/ to robots.txt to try and avoid them increasing download counters.

Wow, Project Honey Pot sounds terrific! Finally; a serious weapon against spammers.

Are you aware that some existing links to old x1tp files are currently broken? There have been several reports in the past week on this forum.

Links from x1tp.com/root to xdownloads seem fine, are you talking about old links to xdownloads on the forum?

Could you give me an example?

thanks

Thanks, I think it should be fixed now. Created a custom redirect.

EDIT: i've also moved some images over to XDownloads3 so that they still work on here.

EDIT2: I've also activated cloudflare to see if it works with XDownloads3. I did try it with XDownloads ULD but didn't have much success.

The new website is looking fantastic, and it is running silky smooth as well.

One question though, when you are logged in, how can you see a list of all your uploaded files. I looked in my user profile and it wasn't there.

Unfortunately that feature I have to wait for, I had to rely on a third party script that hasn't been updated yet.

I will try to create something. Sorry.
