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.

Ok, how about categories? So we can sort words in categories and be able to find them easier?

This mode affect the bbcodes (all bbcodes) .
For bbcode [code] , [php] , [htm], etc -> you'll see this:

style="height:THE-SIZEpx;"> -- instead "THE-SIZE" you'll find the number

How I can fix this? Here a print after I put ON this mode:




If I disable this plugin , everything it's ok .
Maybe one option for the bbcodes exceptions will help this mode I mean if the future option will be on the bbcodes will not be affected ...

I just tested the above with no problem... My guess is one of your keywords is the problem. Please paste here a list of your keywords and I'll see what the conflict is.

Thanks.

Great you got it working. In testing I find styles (with an s at the end) should also work. "style" however will cause this problem.

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.

In a future version I will try and add a check to make sure bad keywords aren't entered into the settings to begin with.

I guess your ideas are good but I would like to have a simple lightweight addon, so I don't support your ideas!

@danyxxx

I would use as less keywords as possible

1.) To upgrade import the product xml file as normal but choose "allow overwrite" to be "yes." This should usually keep your settings. HOWEVER if you really have a lot of keywords I would copy and paste them into a text file and save it just in case, you could always copy and paste the settings back.

2.) I am trying to reproduce the issue but it's working fine for me... can you tell me what 'xxx' is for you, it may be one of the few words that are part of HTML and won't work. I thought I got them all in a previous post but I may have missed some.

the word is ubot, so no its not any of them.
http://blackhatpwnage.com/ubot/ was the url, and the link was this link anchored to Ubot Studio.

in ur panel i had
Ubot Studio
ubot

dont know if that does any difference, thats not html words

I'm sorry I'm trying but can't seem to replicate... can you post a screen shot?

Also want to confirm if both ubot and ubot studio are keywords that ubot studio comes first in the settings.

It should only interfere with AME if a keyword is used in the AME URL... Is it interfering with all your AME links?

I don't have AME 3 installed... honestly I didn't even know AME 3 was working- last time I visited the thread it looked like a new version of VB 4.x broke it.
