Thank You for voting this June 2011 Mod of the Month!!!

The purpose of this mod is to automatically turn keywords or phrases you specify into links. You set a list of keywords and a list of URLs to link them to and let the mod do the rest.

This is the FREE Version. It allows you to auto-link words in:
  • Posts/Threads
  • Private Messages
  • Visitor Messages
  • Social Groups

The GOLD Version is available at Qapla.com It allows auto-linking words in:
  • Posts/Threads
  • Private Messages
  • Visitor Messages
  • Social Groups
  • Picture Comments
  • Blog Entries
  • Blog Comments
  • CMS Articles
  • CMS Comments

Live Demo at Qapla.com.

There are many options as you can see in the screenshot. You can choose to include the "nofollow" attribute, choose to open links in a new tab, choose to match whole words only or not, specify specific forums, enable in social groups and visitor messages, and disable completely for selected usergroups or styles.

Version: 2.0
  • New in 0.91: Limit the number of links created per keyword per post.
  • New in 0.92: Use CSS to customize the look of links created by this mod.
  • New in 0.93: Linked words now retain the same case as they were originally typed. Also a new option to specify whether linked words are case sensitive or not.
  • New in 0.935: Fixed conflict with VBSEO and possibly other mods. Upgrade if you are having problems.
  • New in 0.94: Made the "Custom CSS" an option to prevent unnecessary HTML if not needed.
  • New in 0.95: Enable or disable in PMs.
  • New in 0.96: Should fix conflicts with AME3 mod, restores same case change in 0.93.
  • New in 1.0: Additional code to prevent unintended linking. No new features.
  • New in 1.1: Set approximate number of max links per page.
  • New in 1.2: Fixed bug when Ampersands (&) were used in keywords.
  • New in 1.3: Added optional notice on posts with links and associated phrase.
  • New in 1.5: Two new features: 1) You can now use a csv data file for your links (and advanced features) if you prefer and 2) You can use a custom user profile field to allow users to disable the mod individually if you choose.
  • New in 1.5a: Updated German language file thanks to Igel1.
  • New in 1.6: Fixed bug if keyword was part of thread title and thread title was a link in the post. (VB4 Only)
  • New in 1.7: Added field to extend the regex easily through the mod settings. Included fix for bold/font color links.
  • New in 2.0: Rewritten more efficient code. Added option to disable by styleid. Added GOLD version.

Example... If someone types:

"I bought it on Amazon."

This mod can auto convert it to:

"I bought it on Amazon."

And you would presumably put your Amazon affiliate code, if you had one, in the link.

NOTE: This mod does not alter the actual posts or the database. Disabling or uninstalling the mod will remove all links.

There is a VB3 and VB4 version of this mod, please download the correct version.

Full instructions in zip file.

Notice:
Since the following words are used in HTML tags I would avoid them as keywords:
style, div, class, pre, href, img, html, meta, name, rel, nofollow, and link.

I would also avoid any single letter or two letter keywords since they could easily be used accidentally in places you weren't intending.

Word Links FREE 2.0 Released!

Happy to announce the release of Word Links Free 2.0-
I have improved the efficiency of the code by putting the main function into one external php file.

I have added a new option to disable in specific styles.

I have made usergroup and forum selections easier (now point and click, no need to look up id numbers.)

I have added unique phrases for the auto-link notices to differentiate between posts and messages.

I have also released a new GOLD version which works in even more places. See the first/top thread for details.

If you're happy with the older 1.6 version and don't need the new features feel free to continue using it- I wouldn't expect any functional difference.

But if you do upgrade be aware there is now a php file that needs to be uploaded to your /includes/ directory and you should re-check your options/settings as some have changed.

Enjoy.

and included instead of the url, the whole html code.

this should work, right?
If it works, it works.

No you will not have to re-enter your sites if you upgrade. Don't uninstall the mod, just follow the upgrade instructions and it will be fine.

I can't talk price here on vBulletin.org but you can view the forum at Qapla.com and see the price.

Hi
I have the Gold version now installed.
Great support. Very pleased.
For anyone not using the Gold version the price is very reasonable!

And it has just been updated to show in the CMS Previews a few hours after I mentioned it.

Very impressive.

Is there any known conflict between this mod and [DBTech] Advanced @User Tagging v2 (vB4)? We'd intended to use the Word Links added to make automatic links to our Bulbapedia wiki, mostly for character & Pokémon names. But at the same time, we've also got a lot of forum users who've incorporated those character & Pokémon names into their forum usernames. Seems like both addons would be going for the same words quite frequently, and I'm not sure how they'd handle that conflict.

This mod should ignore any text in a link and if it doesn't it can probably be quickly fixed by editing the "custom regex" setting on the mod.

I know of no known conflicts, but if you find one simply disabling the mod will undo any changes- no changes are made to the database.

If that's how the addon works, then I'm guessing the problems we're having are likely to not be a conflict, but something to do with that other mod and vB4.1.11 then. That's a bit of a relief.

If you can give me a link to a post with the advanced user tagging mod in use I can check for sure.

I would like to turn this phrase:

/ref=

into:

/tag=lbp0b6-21&ref=

but with this addon text phrases can only turned into LINKS..

Looks like you are trying to force Amazon referral credits. It's a good idea but something that simple might backfire- what if "ref" is used on a non-amazon link?

That said vBulletin has a built in "Replacement Variable Manager" in Admin CP -> Styles & Templates -> Replacement Variable Manager.

You set that per style and you could set it up to replace /ref= with whatever you want.

Can I recommend that on your site that you allow non-registered members to see the pricing of your product? I shouldn't have to sign up to your site just to see to know the price.

Without talking too much about price here, I thank you for your feedback. Prices are visible to guests as they are part of the forum name (so they are in the breadcrumb and would be visible if viewing the forum index) however if you didn't notice them I am sure other's haven't either.

I will post them in a more prominent place. It was never my intention to get people to register to see pricing.
