AutoLinker Lite is a keyword linker for vBulletin 3.7 upwards, 4.x, and vBulletin CMS. It allows the webmaster to configure particular words or phrases as keywords, which will then be automatically linked when they appear in user posts. As well as being hyperlinked, keywords can have pop-over info boxes, as in the image below:



These info boxes are highly configurable (colours, borders, fade in/fade out effect etc), and can contain html - meaning you can embed images, videos etc. Balloon-style boxes are also supported.

AutoLinker Lite has a flexible permissions system, allowing you to control which forums a given link appears in, and which usergroups it is visible too.

This is a free version of a commercial product, and contains a limit on the number of AutoLinks that you may create. Other than that, it is fully functional.

Please note that AutoLinks in the CMS do not work in vBulletin 4.0.0 and 4.0.1. 4.0.2 and upwards are fine.

A couple more images to hopefully whet your appetite:

bada_bing: we're working on this for the next full release, which is a week or so away. It'll include support for blogs too (as well as PMs)
Whats the status on the PM support ?

Java is old technology, I knew that when I had to place
a line of your code in the header template, who does
that anymore? Your script needs updating.

I am using 4.1 PL2 - not sure if that helps or not.
I think that the answer to all of these is that you haven't configured your AutoLinks correctly in your admincp.

All of the features which you refer to are fully configurable - and much more besides.

I notice that you have now posted on the www.autolinker.com forum about this. If you have a look on that website and others which are linked from www.autolinker.com you will get some good ideas as to what can be done.

I'm sure that you will come up with your own interesting AutoLink styles once you get used to it.

One problem might be that there are so many ways of displaying your links and popups that it is difficult to know where to start.

However, once you have done a few, you'll get the hang of it and realise what a flexible system it is.

Note that you can also control the maximum number of times a specific autolink will show in a post by editing the autolink

When I do edit an autolink, I did not see this option?? where can I find it?

Thanks!

Yes but the issue is being addressed
Yes, I agree, although the nature of the queries is also important when assessing the impact on the MySQL server. The majority of these queries are all simple SELECTs against indexed columns, and because the table being queries is rarely changed, most of these queries should be served from the query cache.

That said, cutting down on the number of queries has been one of our aims in the latest version, which I'm planning to release later today

Not quite - it's directly proportional to the number of keywords that have been set up. Anyway, it is being addresses

I bought this and really like what they are doing here but their support is terrible. There are a few issues that I am trying to resolve on my own because they suck at responding or answering people on their own forum! Days go by and nothing.
I contacted them and mentioned that it wasn't linking consistently and if they couldn't help or answer my question I might as well get a refund. Ironically I got a refund!

I told them I would rather not accept the refund and that I would like to see us figure this out! The best they could say is that it works on some big board and bye bye .I haven't heard from them since. Jan 2011

I am still trying to trouble shoot this and really want this to work. What's up!

Needless to say, I've put a good amount of time into linking data and am not ready to drop it. Its very cool but it does have problems. The latest issue after one month ( next months stats graph is now broken ) and some code under forum attachments is now appearing.

Below each image it puts this example:
GR-MixMaster20withbanner.jpg Views: 49 Size: 23.0 KB ID: 582" class="size_thumbnail" />

If I turn off autolinker it resolves this issue.

I wish their support was interested in making this software better. They are very disconnected from improvement from what I've experienced.

PM me if you are listening.

I bought the commercial version and have had great support from him ...

Yes, I agree that at times the response has been a little slow, but essentially it's a one man company so I expect gaps depending on other priorities and real life things that happen. I also take into consideration that it's not a hugely expensive product that I would expect to have a 7x24 help desk available, but for me, it's more akin to shareware where support is proportionate to cost. Nobody's going to make a living selling mods to support vBulletin.

He's been really excellent in gradually working through our individual issues and solving them, some of which are due to our own site being highly customized with additional other mods. This latest release is a leap forward and is now operating really stable on our site. It's been an excellent addition to our site and our members love it.

Remember, over used it's like anything else taken to excess and can be annoying and cause problems. Used effectively for the right purposes, it can really add value and differentiate any site from regular vBulletin installations.

I'd recommend folks try the limited (number of links capped) free version here and then ask your pre-sales questions before you buy, to make sure it's going to do what you want it to do.

Regards,
Doug

I can second this! We had some database trouble and the problem was solved in a few hours from and with the programmer of this fantastic stuff.

Please remember that this add is very heavy for all servers to handle but that is for a linking tool like this one just normal, even if you have more than 5 or 7 links with a lot of keywords configured.

.
We issued you a refund because you asked for one; and since you are no longer a customer, you're not actually entitled to be using the software - so we'd appreciate it if you uninstalled it. That's also the reason why your posts have gone unanswered (if you browse the forum you'll notice that yours are the only unanswered posts).
