Great job! :)

And you finally finished 5000+ posts. There should be some change in the ranks. You are still "The Prince Of Persia"?

That's fine. Everyone who has that rank (1000+ posts) simply 'posted lots of stuff'. :)

Is it possible for PoPOT to create a short mod link similar to short trick link?

As popot.org/trick/[trick_number] redirects to the trick video, you could also create popot.org/mod/[mod_number]. Might be good to post on social media instead of long URLs. Just a suggestion.

The page remains empty. For example: this or this doesn't work.

I just found this the other day when I was seeing options in the Administrator Panel. It does have an option to add another rank. But there are just few of them who have reached the target, so it's not worth adding.

And yes, the mod functionality does work really well, I just added Pandemic in Persia to PoPOT. You could change the button status to loading so the user knows something's going on. I had to check the Network Tab from Developer Tools to be sure. Also you could look into allowing option to bulk drop or at least select the screenshot images. Selecting 9 images is pretty time consuming, although it's just 9, so it's fine. (Poetry? :P)

P.S: The news page doesn't get updated, so you still have to do the task of updating the index page. :D

That is because...
https://popot.org/mod/6
...and...
https://popot.org/mod/000006
...are both invalid.
The accurate link to PoP: Tournament is:
https://popot.org/mod/0000006

One thing you can still do is edit your mod to include "The SDLPoP .EXE." name.

I will implement this.
(I did not expect it to ever load longer than a second or two.)

That's true. But that's comparatively not much work. I've just added a link to your mod.

Oh, what does that mean?

Edit: I just noticed, PoPOT has something weird when suggesting random mod. It just showed me Princess of Persia, level 0. I guess if the altered levels are 0 it just shows that? I guess you could just add a condition to check if altered levels are 0, then just show a random number between 1 and 14.

Level 0 means the potion level, or the demo level. And it might be not available or playable ;)

Level 0 is demonstration level (not playable).

Norbert, you could consider adding a filename as a value to the download attribute in the mod page. Currently it gets downloaded as the following:
[mod_number].zip
and it would be great if it's downloaded as
[mod_name].zip

Norbert, why the cheat is displaying "megahit" instead of "PRINCE.EXE megahit" here?

You can edit the mod, then use Ctrl+f to search for the input field I mentioned.

The missing data is the same reason the mod's page does not highlight an icon under the screenshots, and why it (probably, didn't test) won't play through poplaun.

I think the mod page should also add an option of is the mod auto-runner (or any custom hacks with key controls) and also a dropdown option in search mod page since a couple of mods on PoPOT are auto-runner (and I've finished creating one too). I think just adding a column with this name in MySQL and showing it on the mod page are easy enough.
