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.

I don't have have an infolinks account- I looked at it and I don't know if it will conflict or not. Can you give me a link to a page where infolinks is active, I might be able to tell.

Otherwise just try it and see what happens. Disabling the mod will immediately remove any changes so it's no big deal.

I was too happy too soon...lol

Now my infolinks just completely stopped working. I disabled this for now, but my infolinks did not come back yet. I hope this is just a delay.

Do you use a caching system? (not the vbulletin cache but some 3rd party cache?) That's the only time changes aren't immediate.

Could infolinks be having problems of their own?

I am only using a cache for guests. So it should not be that. And now after several hours my infolinks are still gone. I visited their site, but it seems everything is OK. I opened a support ticket with them, to just check anyways, but did not hear back from them yet.
So at this stage I am really worried.

OK, I managed to get Infolinks back now. I used this mod http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showt...ight=infolinks
to integrate Infolinks. I disabled that, and inserted the Infolinks codes manually now. Now Infolinks works again. I don't know if there is some conflict between this mod and yours, even after disabling yours?
Now I am a bit scared to enable yours again...lol

Well I wold never suggest you turn on a mod you weren't comfortable with but I just looked at the infolinks mod you linked to. There is no possible way this mod caused any problems that wouldn't have been solved by turning off word links. Word Links doesn't make any changes to posts or the database. It simply runs after each post is already built and adds links to words it finds. The only problem I could see is if you maybe used "INFOLINKS" as a keyword- I would suggest not doing that- but even if you did it should have been fixed by turning Word Links off if it's not cached.

I know. It is really a mystery to me. I understand what you say. Anyways, I will turn word links on again, and run it without that other mod on, and check. Thanks for getting back to me!

I'm trying to figure out how to turn some specific posted links into other links. For example, I have a forum where someone mentions www.abc.com in a post. I may have a paid listing page for that vendor on a sister site, say www.mysite.com/abc. It sounds like I can't do that with your add-on. Just want to confirm.

You are correct this mod would not work for that.

You could try the "replacement variable manager" in your style manager- that will override any text with any other text, so you could change all instances of:

www.amazon.com

to

www.ebay.com

very easily. However it will run into problems if you have a link like:

www.amazon.com/product1/

which will change it to

www.ebay.com/product1/

which may not be a valid link.

It's either going to be a lot of time entering every possible link with a custom replacement or a high risk of broken links.

Yo didn't post any code... ?

Did you enable the option in the mod to use custom CSS?

What version of vBulletin? Link?
