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.

Now I take what I said back... I just installed AME 3 on my test board and had no issues.

I linked this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypzR0...rec_grec_index

With both "watch" and "beagle" as keywords and AME displayed the video just fine.

Can you give me the exact keyword and a video link that isn't working?

I see... my VB4 site I'm using the newer HTML5 YouTube code that doesn't use flash (shockwave) code at all. Would you consider upgrading to the HTML5 youtube embedding? It will let your mobile users be able to watch YouTube videos on devices that don't support flash (all apple and some android devices).

I have instructions on how to change to HTML5 here: http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=261336

I know there is a spot in AME3 to change the definitions too but I think the mod ignores that if vbulletin has a built in definition because I didn't change the built in flash in AME3 but my site is still using the HTML5 I set per the thread I linked to.

Should fix AME3 conflicts regardless of using HTML5 or Flash embed code.

Updated to version 1.0 - Stable Release!

Thank you all for your help beta testing this mod the last few weeks. I am now confident it is stable and ready for official release. I have just uploaded a new version 1.0.

There are no new features over the last Beta but I have added additional code to prevent unintended linking. (Links that are part of HTML elements and not actual words.)

Although I'm sure we will get the occasional report of a word not being compatible I think for the most part as is it should work for most people most of the time.

If you encounter an unintended link you can remove the keyword and let me know here until I can find a fix.

Enjoy.

yeah my only problem with this is that let's say I link the word Play (a game store online) with Play.com

Whenever a word contains the char 'play', it links it making the whole word awkward...get what I'm saying?
Is there a way to fix this?

Of course
rated, nom, tagged, and installed

There's several options:

Make "Play.com" it's own keyword, put it above the "Play" keyword in settings and it will link the entire word.

Set "Match Whole Words Only" to YES. (But in the particular case of Play.com it probably still will only match "Play" because the period (.) is considered an end-of-word character. Not a bug in the program but just the way php works.

Use custom CSS to make the links look less different than standard text until someone actually mouseover's the link.
