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.

This looks great, but I got a question since I dont see the answer in the screen shot.

Lets say the keyword is "Modern Warfare 3" and that term is used in the post 20 times. Will there really be 20 links in there ... or is there a way to set a maximum amount of links per keyword per post ?

Again, great work!

Yes you can set a maximum number of keywords per post. (If you set it to 3 for example than the first 3 uses of "Modern Warfare 3" will become links. If you have another keyword, say "Playstation 3" then that will also become a keyword up to 3 times in the same post.) The limit is per keyword per post.

Great looking mod
This has got to be better than using tynt to create back links from scrapers
Plus I like the look of extra versatility of the links
Being able to limit what forums they display in along with being able to disguise them in the same color as normal text

Updated to 0.96. Although none reported in this version should reduce chance of conflict with AME mod.

Nice mod, but...
1. If you install TCattd - The Image Resizer
http://www.vbulletin.org/forum/showthread.php?t=184571

2. If the keyword is chosen banner link to http://sample.com/... and then you insert the image url containing "banner", example: http://sample.com/banner/images01.jpg banner keywords in the url will be automatically converted into links and images error because url of the image is not intact.

Can U leave affected to keywords in IMG tags in this case?

Yeah image resizers can cause issues...

Can you turn off this mod and then paste here the HTML code of an image on your page with the image resizer turned on? It will start with <img src="... and give me the whole tag. I can then figure out how to disable the mod on those images.

Or if you can just link me to a post on your site with images in it I can look at the code myself.

I love this mod, but I have a problem.

I use "hide links from guest" and the links generated by this mod are also hidden. I need those links are not affected by the mod "hide links from guest" as it does for example the mod "Post Replacements. "

Is there any way to get links from this mod are not hidden by "hide links from guest?
Thanks!!!
