K-Links Basic Edition Overview
||K-Links Basic is the light version of K-Links and doesn't contain a couple of the more advanced features like reciprocal link checker, newsletter, ability for members to write reviews on listings, banners system, database backup tool, editors picks feature, an option to make listings sponsored and ability to upload images for listings. K-Links Basic is however still capable to run a large link directory website and contains all the basic features you'll need (and the price of it is truly unbeatable!). If you're looking for a more feature-rich link indexing solution please take a look at the other editions of K-Links.|

Listings can be added by site administrator or submitted by registered members.
K-Links, of course, also have predefined fields like Title, Summary, Description, Category, URL, etc. K-Links has been very popular to be used as scripts/software directory, so it also has built-in fields that are suited for displaying script/software listings like Price, Platform, Size, Download URL.
Search Engine Friendly!
This is one of the most important aspects for link directory script. If you're not on search engines you are nowhere! Fortunately, you don't have to worry about that as long as you use K-Links Directory because every single page of your site will be crawled by Google and other search engines! For example, there are 11,000 pages from webmasterscripts.org listed at Google!
How do we achieve so good compatibility with search engines?
- Static URL's are used. Search engines do not like page addresses like http://mysite.com/index.php?req=show&act=listing&id=12345 and most of such pages aren't even crawled. We have chosen different approach and use static URL's that search engines crawl with pleasure. For example:
http://softbull.com/stardust-wallpaper-control.html. Every page is still generated dynamically!
- We use listing title to generate listing address. Like in the previous example - if listing title is Stardust Wallpaper Control then the URL will be /stardust-wallpaper-control.html. Search engines usually give priority to pages that contain words from search query in their address.
- Listing title is included in page title. This is similar to previous example with URL's. Search engines give higher priority to pages that contain that search term in their titles.
Very Powerful Administration Area!
The extremely powerful admin area is another aspect that makes this product to stand out among others! There are lots of similar products with nice frontend, but the backend part is often a little neglected. Well, not in this case!
- Add unlimited number of administrators!
Your site could get large and you might not be able to handle all the administration alone, so you might want to involve some other people to handle the administration - to approve new listings, reviews, handle advertising, etc. One solution would be to use the same admin account for all admins but that would be unsafe, so that's not a real solution. K-Links directory enables you to create new admin accounts easily and best of all - you can limit permissions for each admin! For example, one admin is only allowed to manage/approve listings and reviews. Another admin is responsible for managing banners and so on. Simple yet truly effective!
- Easy Data Management
Almost every type of data with K-Links Directory is bulk-processable. Approve/suspend, modify information or category, delete, etc. and view detailed information about submission - member id, IP, submission time, etc. Listings can be sorted virtually any way you wish - by date added, date updated, member, title, etc. Also search can be processed for every field, for example, it's easy to filter out all the listings that contain the word "database" in their description. The same refers for member management - you can filter out members by email adresses, signup IP's, etc, etc. In very similar way you can manage polls, etc. We suggest to take a look at admin area yourself to get the idea of the real power - a picture paints a thousand words ;)
- Add Listings
Listings can be added through admin panel as well
- Approve New Listings
All the new listings that are submitted by site members need to be approved by admin first.
- Add unlimited number of categories and subcategories in unlimited number of levels!
- Categories can be moved around easily! You can reorganize the category tree without pain while maintaining the listing association to categories.
- Category page URLs contain category names therefore making them search engine friendly.
- Different color icons for categories depending on how many days ago there were new listings submitted to this category
- Possibility to group similar/related scripts from different categories together using cross-related categories. For example if you have listings of related P2P clients you can group them together even if they are from different categories. At each of listings pages there will be links to other listings from this category (for example, similar programs, addons to this program, etc.)
- Options Panel
Change various settings and options of the script.
- The script is almost fully template based and templates can be modified through admin area
- All the fonts and colors are CSS based and CSS file can also be modified from admin area
- Language-file based! You can run the site in any language you want, just translate the language file! Take a look at softbull.com - it's in Spanish!
- All the emails submitted by script (welcome, password recovery, subscriptions, newsletters) can be modified easily as well.
Built-in polls management system enables you to run surveys on your site.
Display quick messages in index page - for example - "We will have server upgrade at March 15 2:00-3:00 EST" for given amount of time.
