PlugPanel - Creative Plugboards for the Future.
Plugboards have always been an interesting way to exchange links and promote your website.
These days webmasters are very wary of "exchange link" requests, as the internet progressively becomes flooded with more and more pornographic, illicit, scam and phishing sites.
Selective Search Engines
One overlooked "bad" link can see major search engines like Google or Yahoo suddenly demote your "top-ranking" pages to the bottom of the ladder! Fortunately, search engines have always looked favourably on Plugboards, presumably because the site owner has so much control over what plugs they accept, and also who the plugs are from.
Cap this with an interesting sub-culture of avid internet "pluggers", who compete amongst each other to produce the most creative and artistic of animated gifs, and you have a vibrant webpage of colourful images, each leading to more plugboards on other sites.
Older Plugboard Systems.
Unfortunately the technology of yesterday's plugboards has slowly became redundant, as internet technology has progressed so rapidly, particularly in the past few years.
These "old-school" plugboards were usually "flat-file" databased, and generally required FTP server access, and a basic knowledge of PHP or PERL to install and configure.
Editing or Deleting plugs usually meant downloading the datafile by FTP, and poring through the entries in a text editor. One bad edit would generally "break" the file, and then you lost all your links if you hadn't made a backup first. Then you would re-upload the datafile by FTP to your server, and cross your fingers that you'd made the right changes.
Text based Flat-File databases certainly have their uses, and are ideal for databasing a few items, but now we can move into the future with MySQL database systems that can process thousands of requests in less than the blink of an eye! Not only that, but all the data is readily accessible, so now you can have an easy to maintain Plugboard, with many many more easily controlled features.
