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.

Really you would want to use this mod in combination with Skimlinks and possibly disable skimwords.

I am using it with skimlinks myself.

This mod is kind of like a local version of "Skimwords" but you have 100% control over which words are linked, and where they are linked to, and how many are linked per post or page.

Skimwords in my experience just offers you a few options and a lot of times it doesn't seem to link relevant words at all.

Plus any links Word Links make will still be counted by Skimlinks so if a user follows it from your site you will get affiliate credit.

I'm not saying this is better or worse than skimwords, it is a personal preference which you prefer. You can use both, I haven't seen any conflicts. This is just a different way of doing things.

Change your flash bbcode to this... this should prevent your {param}'s from being linked...

You can definitely do this if you upload a .csv file & you can apply it to individual links. I don't think there's an option in the basic settings.

I've just installed this & it's exactly what I was looking for. I'm using it for 'internal' links to my main website & for affiliate links (not skim links).

It will appear at the bottom of your vBulletin Options after all the standard vB settings as 'Word Links by BOP5'. All of the settings for my other plugins seems to appear there in the order I installed them.

As explained this is something that can be set in the options. Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Word Links by BOP5 (near the bottom but not always at the bottom.)

In the options you can set new window or same window for all links. If you setup a csv file you can specify for individual links.

It is possible. No promises. Will be sure to post here if any update.

Is it possible to add a hover over box to the link? That would be very useful. IE before they click it says "Amazon - Be sure to use your XYZ forum memeber benefit" etc...
