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.

Suspended or Unlicensed Members Cannot View Code.

and save it...


Then you need to edit the Word Links mod settings. At the bottom of the settings the option called Custom Regex

You should have some existing code in this box, at the very end of it, making sure to leave no space, add the following code:

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

And save changes.

And if all works then you should be able to write


in a post and it won't be linked.
That work perfectly. Thank you!!

Hello!

I don't really seem to make this work at all. Not sure if I am doing something wrong.
I tried any option possible. I uploaded the file to includes folder and tried both the csv file and without it. It just won't work. I tried every option on the Config->Options->Word Link section and nothing happens.
I'm quite lost.

What version of VB and PHP are you using, exactly?

What are some of your keywords, exactly?

Hello,

Sorry for the delayed response.

My version of VB is 4.2.2 and my PHP version is 5.4.36

The keywords I activated are Amazon and eBay. Both case sensitive. I also tried the default csv example file, with no success.

Best regards,
Visual

Then I'm sorry I don't know, it works on my system with those versions. Do you have many other mods installed? Can you try disabling them and see if it works?

Yes you can, you need to enable the custom css option in the settings and then create the CSS to use in the additional.css template. I believe there is an example in the readme file.

I apologize, I error with a link! :-(

I can do other question?

If you wanted to link these words together but not separate
"viaggi sicuri"
how should I do?

activating the Case Sensitive I would not lose the variants:
Viaggi sicuri
Viaggi Sicuri
VIAGGI SICURI
etc?

Assuming you have case-insensitive turned on then just use: viaggi sicuri

But make sure it is above any instances of viaggi or sicuri alone on the list.

If you have case-sensitive then you can make as many variations as you want just all set to go to the same URL.

You need to upload the file to the correct location. It's saying functions_bop_wordlinks.php is not in the /includes/ folder.
