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.

For those wondering about performance when using the data file- in my test with almost 100 keywords and 200 links in a post the page generation on VB 4.0.8 was at most 2/100th of a second more when using the data file as opposed to the internal settings.

I thank you for the kind words but I want to stress this is NOT a real alternative to skimlinks or viglinks... However it will work well if you have either of those installed.

The good thing about viglinks/skimlinks is you don't have to sign up for 12000+ affiliate accounts with 12000 different merchants.

Also if a user gives a link to a specific amazon item say, this mod will ignore it- where as the others will still turn it into an affiliate link.

Plus the skimlinks javascript and viglink will also turn any links created by this mod into affiliate links.

I would strongly suggest running skim or viglinks in addition to this mod.

Damn. Okay. I'll turn skimlinks back on.

Hi, I am wondering if this might conflict with enabled acronym expansions of vBSEO? Is it possible to run both or is it better to disable the vBSEO feature?

And may I ask one question that might sound stupid to you? What exactly is the SEO benefit and advantage of Word Links? Sorry for being a little unexperienced on this field ;-). And thanks a lot!

I don't have VBSEO so I can't test it. I would try it and see what happens. Unless you used the same keyword as an acronym I don't think there would be a problem.

Honestly I don't know what the SEO benefit is that's why I didn't mention any SEO benefit in the main post. I made this so people could include affiliate links to bring in some money when people buy stuff by following these links mostly. SEO benefit, if any, is secondary.

I have a small error BirdOPrey5

If the MOD is aktiv, by quotes in the Forum News (there are artikel and comments from CMS) the Name Link "quote by test" appears as a "quote by test %C2%AE-Navigation&p=72510#comment_72510" rel="nofollow">

This is only in forum area were the artikel and comments from cms are.

Nofollow are in MOD option of NOT

EDIT
in "%C2%AE-Navigation&p=72510#comment_72510" rel="nofollow" is one keyword, i think that's the problem

ok if I disable the keyword then the quotes are displayed correctly, is there a way to link the conversion of quotations to prevent?

I need a link to the exact page where the error would happen. PM me a link if you don't want to post it. Also tell me what was the exact keyword.

Thanks.

Updated to version 1.6- Fixes a very unusual bug when a keyword is part of a URL of an internal vBulletin link created by quoting a post when "friendly" URLs are enabled.

Looks awesome! Thank you. Just one question before I install. What if I use infolinks already? (I read about skimlinks and viglinks, but are they the same as infolinks?)
