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.

3) I thought so too but it didn't. This site suggested spans were needed: http://www.echoecho.com/csslinks.htm
1) Maybe you can add a setting to define the replaced keywords per page?
How many times of each keyword shall be replaced per page?
How many keywords (whole keywords added above) shall be replaced on one page?
2) Thank you, will try it out.

3) Can't test it, it seems that your new version isn't working anymore? Can't get it working on vB 4.1.2. It doesn't replaces the keywords with the links?

Very weird... I just re-uploaded the exact code I just tested on a 4.1.2 forum. Please try again. Also I uploaded the older version just in case.

Please let me know.

Bird,

What isn't working?

It is not replacing selected words and turning them into links..

Did it install?

Installed fine, no error messages or db error codes.


Did you set "enable" to Yes?

Sure did, did it twice to make sure.

Can you paste here a list of the keywords and URL's you are using?


What actually happens- nothing? Bad links? Error code?

Nothing happens, no keywords selected in the admin area are converted to links.

Link to a post if possible?

Will shoot you credentials if you like?

Thanks to fishmaster I found a conflict with VBSEO. I have uploaded a new version 0.935 to fix this conflict. If you were having problems with the mod not working at all I suggest you upgrade to 0.935 whether you run VBSEO or not.

If you use xcache or other caching software it may take several minutes for the affects of the mod to show up. Turn it on and wait 5 to 10 minutes if you don't see the links immediately- they will come eventually.

3) Can't test it, it seems that your new version isn't working anymore? Can't get it working on vB 4.1.2. It doesn't replaces the keywords with the links?
3) Incredible the class tag seems not to work for links? Although it might be good, if you make the span tag as an option, because for example me I don't want to use it

Your new version is now working Although it was a clean vB 4.1.2 installation.


Suggestions:
  • Optional span tag
  • Option: Links per page
