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.

Thanks eh69, I always figured there was a working mod to do this already- I didn't realize the old one wasn't working out for people.

Ni,
very god Mod - nominated.
A better alternative for Skimlinks.

I have 2 suggestions:
1. If you have a lot of Links it might be difficult to change one, you have to count the Lines in two boxes.

2. It bis good for internal linking an external (Ads) linking. But if possible i like to set this 2 Groups different.
Internal: follow and same Tab/Window
External: nofollow an new Tab window.

It might be good to have 4 Boxes (2 for internal Liks and 2 for external Links)

Or have one 1 Box with Parameters:
ex:

Word|Link|0|1 Parameter: 0=follow, 1=nofollow and 0= same Window, 1=new Window ore something like this.


Best regards
Christian

Those are good ideas Christian, the single box idea has been mentioned before. I'm trying to find a way to make entering it easier.

In the mean time I am updating this mod to version 1.1 which allows for an approximate maximum links per page.

Updated to version 1.1.

You can now set *an approximate* number of total max links per page.

It is approximate because the mod will make links until it reaches the end of the post, VM, or social group message where it meets the page max number of links.

Hi,
just a dirty trick

I installed the Mod twice.
I take the .xml search for "bop" an change it to "bob".
And chage the execution order to "3"
It looks OK but whatever you do you do it on your own risk.

On version I use for internal Links: Visible to all, follow, same window.
One Version I use for Ad Links: Guest only, no-follow, new window.

Its important not to have one Word in both versions but thats in your own hand.

Christian

Just to expand on what CThieseen is saying, he installed two copies of the mod, 1 for internal links one for external links. (So he can specify new window or not for each)

To do this install the 1st copy as normal.

Now open the XML product file.

With your text editor do a "search and replace"

Replace all instances of "bop" with "bob" (or whatever you want really)

Save the XML file (with a different name)

And Import the new XML file. It will be a second copy of the same mod.

This *should* work if you really need to treat internal and external links differently but I have NOT tested this and can't support people who install it this way.

It should, it doesn't depend on the editor.

New in 1.3: Added optional notice on posts with links and associated phrase.

You can choose to display a custom notice in posts, PMs, visitor messages, and social group posts to alert users that keywords have automatically been turned into links.

To edit this notice use the Phrase Manager and edit the GLOBAL phrase: bop5_wordlinks_note.
HTML code is allowed in phrases. {1} will be replaced with the number of keywords linked in a post. Its use in the phrase is optional.

Big update today... Two new features.

1) For those of you with a lot of keywords and links it's hard to keep track of which keyword goes to which link in the two separate boxes you can now put all your keywords and links together in one .csv (comma separate value) data file and upload it and the mod will pull its info from the data file instead of the two boxes.

In addition you can use advanced features if using the datafile such as setting the "target" and "rel" attributes for each link individually if you choose. If you don't specify a target or a rel value the mod will use whatever setting you have chosen in the mod settings.

A sample datafile is included and an example is here:

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

You can make a csv file in a text editor or use a spreadsheet like Microsoft Excel and "Save As" a common CSV file.

The second new feature is integration with an optional Custom User Profile Field. If you make a custom profile field to enable users to turn automatic word linking on or off you can tell this mod which field number you created and the mod will disable itself for anyone who turns it off. (By default it's on.) Full instructions on how to make a custom user profile field is included in the mod instructions.

A separate How-To make a compatible csv datafile is also included in the mod .zip fie.
