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.

Please post a link to an example where this happens.

Note the setting says:

This will attempt to limit the number of links generated per SHOWTHREAD page. (Works for Posts only). Unlike the above setting this will limit the TOTAL number of links so it's best used in conjunction with the limit per keyword above. This is not an ABSOLUTE limit- it will prevent keywords in additional posts after the limit has been reached. If the limit is reached within a single post it will still link additional keywords within that post. Enter 0 for unlimited links.
It is not intended to be an absolute limit. If you have 5 different keywords in the same post they all get linked.

Hey, BOP - first, I LOVE this mod. Works great for us. We have about 15-20 sponsors and we word link each of their names. The URL's include our affiliate ID's - it's perfect for that use case.

What I'm looking for is a way to notify a sponsor when their name is linked. So if someone typed "I love Sponsor1 because of x, y, z..." not only would Sponsor1 include our affiliate link, but Sponsor1 would get notified (email or PM, or something) that someone mentioned their name on the forum.

Is it possible? I know there are other @mention type mods, but that's not really what I'm looking for. Would gladly pay!

Would it be possible to add the ALT attribute (description) to the link of the word?
I think it would be very useful
I hope for your support
thanks

works with 4.2.1, but I still can't use it because it overwrites existing URLs and I don't want members to get upset that I'm replacing their links with my own.

It appears to only happens in multiple word links.

For example, the below is a text link from a member

"selling boat supplies"

I then create a word link for

"boat supplies"

The URL for the "selling" text remains the same, but the "boat supplies" URL is overwritten with the new URL I added.

If you can make it so no existing links are overwritten that would be awesome. Tagged for future use.

Can this mod be used to hyperlink all words in posts that are contained in the tag lists? Think that would be great to get more traffic on otherwise untrafficed posts. IE, if I saw the word in a post that was hyperlinked to the thread list page of a tag that is in my database.

Know what I mean?

ALT is used for images. A title attribute would be what you want... What would you want the title pop-up to say?

That file does exist in the zip, please ensure that the file, functions_bop_wordlinks is in your includes folder.

You need to upload the file from the .zip file to your server, the file functions_bop_wordlinks.php needs to wind up in your /includes/ folder.

Thanks, but it already won "Mod of the Month" so it can't be re-nominated.

Is there anyway here to control the size of the lettering in the links created?
I mean, is it possible to BOLD the link as it is created or/and push the size of the font up a notch.
Possibly add an underline if necessary?

Thanks......
