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.

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......
Yes, in the mods setting choose - Enable Custom CSS? to YES.

Then in your additional.css template add some custom css for the element boplink. There are examples in the instruction/readme text file.

Not exactly sure your question. In the mod settings is the option - Disable For Specified Usergroups - where you can hide the links to specific usergroups, including guests.

Joe - thanks again for providing this.

One other little annoyance that I noticed. If the keyword is already within a link then this mod will erase that link and enter the one in the definition. I can see where this would be useful in some cases, but for my purposes I would like to keep the link that I entered. Any easy workaround for to do this?

Hi. I couldn't find it on the thread, so I ask... is there a way of excluding this from words within a link?

Like... when you put a link but with a "custom title" containing the word.

Can I do something about it?

The mod is designed to not affect keywords already part of a link...

So if Amazon is a keyword

and you have a Link like-

Use Google to Search Amazon

Amazon should NOT be getting linked...

If it is please send me a URL where I can see it happen and the keyword(s) that are getting linked that shouldn't be.

Dear BirdOPrey, thanks a lot for this mod!!
I'm testing it and i have a little problem with some words. Words finishing with accent were not automatically linked (for example "gravità", "novità" ecc). Other words with accent inside has no problems (example: "Attività solare").

After a bit of debug, i see the words "gravità" correctly inside arrays:
$bop_find_array and
$bop_replace_array

but the links were not generated, nor span tags etc... the words with accent at the end were simply ignored.

Any ideas?
Thanks again

I imagine it has to do with regular expressions and character encoding- unfortunately I don't know how to fix the issue. The issue has been mentioned in comments on php.net but there's no easy fix.

Here's an example: http://nikonites.com/general-lenses/...up-%24400.html

These should all be links to amazon, but some are coming up with the links defined in this mod. The phrases are defined in a file. Maybe it has something to do with the dots and dashes?

This is interesting- In the Settings for the Alt Text to Linked Images mod find the setting-

Image Resizer Code

And add this code-

Even if you're not using an image resizer just want to see if this stops the problem or not.
