NOTE:
This modification works for all versions of vBulletin.

DESCRIPTION:
Imagine if you could monitor every time someone copies and pastes something off your site. To make it even better, what if you can insert a backlink when you text is pasted somewhere else. Itís a great way for attribution, tracking what content is popular, and gaining some inbound links.

Tynt Insight allows you to do this. Itís a free service and there is even a slick reporting dashboard. You simply signup, generate your unique bit of JavaScript and insert it into your site.

Each time a user pastes content from your forum into an email, blog or website, Tynt automatically adds an URL link back to your siteís original content. When someone clicks that URL, they are directed back to your site and see the original content.

This drives incremental traffic to your site when your content is shared without your knowledge while maintaining a consistent user experience. Make link-backs to your content effortless for readers and gain new insight into user engagement with Tynt Insight. With this modification, you can bring up to 40% more visitors to ceratin pages on your forum.

INSTALLATION GUIDE:

1) Register your domain;
2) Go to "Link setup" and customize your attribution link;
3) Click on "Get your script" to get the code;
4) Go to your forum admin panel > Open Styles & templates > Edit header > paste the code on top of everything > Save.

Optionally, you can test the code here, or try it out yourself!

VIDEO DEMO:
You can find the video demo here.

Interesting that he decides to "release" this as a "template mod" 5 days after I made a thread about it.

Great Mod, but I just tested it and there is nothing to prevent the person copying it from deleting it when they post it in an email or on a forum etc. Therefore the fact the person can copy / paste and REMOVE the link makes this a fail mod. Sadly.

*wonders where this points to*

Can't seem to see this either. Is there a hidden place on the site?!?

A forum for Coders to discuss vBulletin modification with other coders.

I really wish this part was viewable.

I understand and can even respect the need to keep your average end user from mindlessly posting in there (oh boy, can I ever understand that).

But it would sure help those like myself who do some "light coding" a world of good to review whats in there (read only). It surely can help a lot of others (myself included) to learn a thing or two. I think it may even help some of us produce more mods or even templates (themes) for vBulletin to learn something now and again.


EDIT: Installed, but I would not "count" this as MOD... More as someone pointing everyone to a 3rd party resource and even then, I'd give credit to extreme-gaming (assuming AcidX could have read the original source)

Not a problem, I decided to release it under my name for other versions of vbulletin where it belongs, due to the evidence in this thread.

Registered domain, installed and testing ...

Interesting concept .....

I notice that when our members use copy and pastes within our own site, this mod picks up and shows the attribution data as well ....

I wonder how much this slows down a site, or if their server goes down, does it drag down ours as well?

Regards,
Doug

So, if you made a thread about it, that automatically means that you're the only one that can publish the use of Tynt on vBulletin? Give us a break mate, and chill, i've never even read your thread before, nor do I ever read the Private coders forum - I just use Tynt on all my sites and thought it would be a nice idea to share this interesting tool.

It is a mod, a simple and useful third party integration mod.

Tell you what, you give me credit where credit is due and that'll be the end of that.

People don't just go running around stealing other peoples ideas over at vb.org.

None. The script is located on tynt's servers. There is no additional load on your forum.

Great, maybe you can get the proper attention now. Jesus Christs.

Please stop ruining the thread. And for the last time, stop convicting me of "stealing" something "yours". Basically, you're the one that copy/pasted the whole thread from me. Every single word. Now THAT - everyone can see. You really do leverage the benefit of copy/paste

Moderators, please be kind and take proper actions.

Thumbs down

Oh I suppose it was just "coincidence" then that you "just so happened" to make this thread only a mere 5 days after what I posted in the linked thread found in the attachments and my earlier posts.
