A couple new improvements to the Waxy Backlinks script. It can now be called from PHP scripts, referrers from some search engines are now excluded by default, and you can set the maximum number of backlinks to display and the minimum threshold of hits before a link gets displayed. Any of these options can easily be changed in the script itself. Many thanks to Joe Utsler and Ben Trott for bug reports. Download Waxy Backlinks v0.05 now! (Installation and configuration details inside.)
To install, you can use the same procedure as before.
To set the maximum number of links to display, change $max_links (default is 10). To change the minimum number of hits before a backlink is displayed, change $min_hits (default is 0, showing all backlinks). And if you want search engine backlinks to display, remove the domains from the @blacklist.
If backlink.cgi is being called from a PHP script:
1. Edit the script, and change $php equal to 1.
2. In your PHP script(s), insert the following line where you want the backlinks to be displayed (change the path to point to backlink.cgi):
<? echo `perl /path/to/cgi/backlink.cgi “$HTTP_HOST” “$SCRIPT_NAME” “$HTTP_REFERER”`; ?>
