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.

For SEO use what is this actually doing to the links? Is it using 302 redirects or a better SEO complaint way?

I don't know why you would use a "redirect" - these just make everyday links just the same as if whoever wrote the post included the links themselves- although the mod gives an option if you want "nofollow" or not.

There is no redirecting involved.

I am trying to use this to replace Amazon and eBay links w/ my affiliate ID, but it doesn't seem to be working.

eg: If someone enters this link:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

I want it to automatically enter my affiliate ID. But it leaves the link unchanged. I believe I have everything set correctly in the admin:

Word/Phrases to link:

Amazon
Amazon.com
www.amazon.com
http://amazon.com/
http://www.amazon.com/

URLS to link words to:

http://www.amazon.com/?tag=affiliateID
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=affiliateID
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=affiliateID
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=affiliateID/
http://www.amazon.com/?tag=affiliateID/

I have Case Sensitive set to No
Match Whole Words Only set to No

What am I doing wrong?

Is this great mod supporting only English keywords?
I have an Arabic forum, and test it there, but with no chance to get word linked, but if I add English word as keyword it works like a charm.

Please fix this important point, because I'm very interesting in your gold version .

I believe it has to do with utf-8 and text being from different char sets, I'm not sure if there is much I can do about it, will check though.

Very sorry if this has been asked already but just so many threads to go through, is this available for 3.8?

I would really like a mod like this for 3.8 - I have vbgeek but they don't exist now unfortunately.

Thanks!

Thank you

Hi

I searched the thread but may have been missing the right keywords.

The mod breaks my VBulletin 4.2 pages, and I didn't know if you had any thoughts on it.

Some example pictures for you:
