vB Version: 3.8.x Rating: (12 votes - 4.83 average) Installs: 66
Released: 16 May 2011 Last Update: 28 Jul 2012 Downloads: 377
Supported Uses Plugins Translations  

My VB4 Version of this mod won the June 2011 Mod-of-the-Month!! This is virtually an identical mod- thank you for your votes!

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.

Demo Link

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.

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 0.94: The <span> tags for use with custom CSS are now optional. They can be turned off to prevent unnecessary HTML generation if not using custom CSS. Also bug & conflict fix.
  • New in 0.95: Enable or disable in PMs.
  • New in 0.96: Should fix conflicts with AME 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 1.31: Bug-fix. Somewhere around version 1.0 "Match Whole Words Only" stopped working. It is now fixed.
  • 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 2.0: New condensed code. New option for custom regex code.

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.

*NEW IN 0.92*

As of version 0.92 all links created are within a <span> tag of class "boplink." This allows you to customize the look of the links created by this mod ussing CSS.

In your "Additional CSS" you can add the following CSS code and customize it to your liking for each of your styles. This is OPTIONAL. If you do not add this CSS links will retain the same style as existing links in your posts.

Sample CSS:


Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

This CSS will highlight the links in yellow and turn the text to red and bold when mouse-overed.

In VB 3.x Additional CSS is accessible via Style Manger -> All Style Options, scroll down to Additional CSS Definitions. Use the lower box to customize the CSS uniquely for each style.

This mod uses functions that may not work on non-latin (multibyte/unicode) characters. I'm sorry but it is only tested/working on English and other latin based alphabets.

Please Mark as Installed if you use this.

Nevermind- I see the issue- you're image resizer mod is conflicting.

You can fix this by editing the three plugins:

Word Linker Group Message
Word Linker Postbit
Word Linker Visitor Messages


In EACH find the line:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

And replace it with:

Block Disabled:      (Update License Status)  
Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

In a future version I will include an option for a custom regex to take care of special circumstances like yours.

Question

How does this cope with linking a word to a particular product (by using the 'insert link' icon in the post interface and turning a word into a clickable link), would it still direct people to my affiliates program? for example I'd like to do something like this-

I just bought my new wide angle 17-40mm lens from amazon and so far I'm very impressed with the results!

It won't link to individual products unless you set a link for each individual product... This is not a replacement for something like VigLinks or SkimLinks which will affiliate ALL your links (including links made by this mod.)

How do you make it so the link text is blue and the link still is underlined. I played around with editing this CSS but my lack of skills didn't figure it out.

Also, I just upgraded the plugin and I have an issue that I was hoping by upgrading would fix. As I had this issue before too.

here is an example.

I wrote this ...

I am testing out some stuff in regards to Uncharted 2. I love battlefield 3 and hate how Modern Warfare 2 turned out. I am also hungry as shit and waiting for a pizza to made in the oven.
and this is what it churned out.

each game reference should be linked, as you can see it botched it up and only left one game reference in there. ie. linked.

Blue and underlined should be the default in VB 3.x.

I will need a link to your forum and a copy & paste of all your keywords and URLs (or the datafile) to investigate.

Also please let me know what your settings are in the mod.

I've tested using your exact words and your exact settings and the phrase you e-mailed me that was causing you issues, and it all worked fine.

I'd imagine you are having a conflict with some other mod perhaps.

As for the custom link colors you need to enable the custom CSS in the mod settings which you have off. And then add the CSS as instructed in the taxt file to your additional css template.

I don't do CSS design myself so it will be up to yo to figure out how to get the colors you want.

No additional queries.

I haven't had any complaints on server loads, I know there are some large/busy forums using it.
