In JV-LinkDirectory, there are 2 types of listings that can be added viz. One way links and Two way links. Two way links are those which have a back link from the partner's site to your site. They are also called reciprocal links. Such links can be added to your directory only after the submitter adds your link at their site first.
Till date, one way links and two way links were considered as 2 different types of listings. There were separate configuration options for each of them. In JV-LinkDirectory 5.12, we are merging them together by making "back link check" as an additional option in listing or link plan, instead of having it as a separate type of link. There are numerous usability benefits due to this.
As you already aware, JV-LinkDirectory provides "Advertisements", a revenue making feature by which you can add advertisements or banners or any HTML/non-HTML content in pre-defined slots in your directory. Till date, to achieve this you had to create advertisement specification ( adspec ) or slot, add fee plans and then add advertisement (HTML) to that slot. Besides, you had to create a template override to add the advertisement specification code to the template where you want the advertisement to appear.
From the usage statistics and feedback from customers, we realized that administrators found this process tedious and time consuming, especially creating a new advertisement specification or slot and making the template overrides. So in JV-LinkDirectory 5.12 we decided to simplify this and make it really easy for admins to add advertisements.
JV-LinkDirectory provides a way for administrator and site visitors to add specific data for their listings via "Extra Fields" or "Custom Fields". Till date you could create fields like Checkbox, Address Location, Country, Date, Dropdown, Editor, Email, Facebook URL, Google Plus URL, Meta description, LinkedIn URL, Radio buttons, RSS Feed Url, Text field, Text area field, Time, URL and Twitter URL.
In JV-LinkDirectory 5.12 we are adding the following new extra fields that you can add and have your listings show them in front-end and back-end!
