    Official - Paid vB5 AutoLinker

    AutoLinker (others call it AutoLinks) is a vBulletin 5 keyword linking system designed to automatically convert particular words or phrases used in posts into hyperlinks. There are a number of this mod for vB4 but I've never seen anything for vB5. This is probably the first for vB5!

    Here are possible uses of AutoLinker:
    • Advertising - You can configure particular keywords to link to products or services that you are selling or advertising for your affiliate marketing program or your e-Commerce site. For example, whenever a user mentions "camera" or "web hosting" in his post, it will be automatically linked to a product page with your affiliate id and if someone clicked that link and bought the product, then you will receive a revenue.
    • Linking of frequently used words in your site - In vBulletin.com support forum, how I wished that whenever I mention "enable debug mode" phrase in my post, it would be automatically linked to my blog post or to BirdOPrey5's blog post. Right now I always have to find one of those links and insert it manually into my post. With this mod, Administrators will be able to configure frequently used words, phrases or sentences that will be linked to an appropriate page and they will save a lot of time answering members because helpful links are provided instantly, resulting to high level of satisfaction for members.
    • Glossary - If you have definition of terms or online documentation in your site, you could link frequently used terms to that page. For example, "contact us" would link to your Contact Us page.

    Features/Benefits:
    • Convert keywords in posts in topic pages only or everywhere a post is displayed across the site.
    • Autolinks are easily customizable using custom CSS.
    • Easily configurable in AdminCP.
    • No noticeable drop in performance. Tested on an actual live site with a set of 70 keywords to convert.
    • Does not require editing default vB templates.
    • Free lifetime upgrades

    Limitation:
    • Not fully SEO-friendly. I have plans to make it fully SEO-friendly in version 2.0. This is not that bad since search engines still see the original text without the link.

    Demo:
    See discoverxs' demo links (posts #4 and #7) in the replies below.


    Note:
    This mod is compatible only for the self-hosted vB5 Connect version. For the vBCloud version, go to this vBCloud AutoLinker thread.

          Thanks for the interest 420 I will be happy to see you there

          As for the mod ...
          Glenn will send a new ver soon for testing.
          will update here after we install and set up.

          Plus a few cosmetic changes are planned (from our end).
          we will see if its possible to realize them before final release of the mod.

          Overall there is no alternative to the mod so far.

          I was asking for this since 2013
          http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/forum...-links-for-vb5
          no one except http://vbmods.rocks/ did something

                  I will have to create and implement it differently for vBCloud. Ideally, this is just for self-hosted version where you install the product XML and configure the mod in its own options in AdminCP > Settings > Options. That's not allowed in vBCloud. I will find a workaround though.

                  No. I will create a separate mod for vBCloud. Watch out for it.

                Okay I just ordered it for Modeeworld.

                Seems to work fine - question - what will it do to words that already included a link in posts.

                For example on my forum I occasionally went through and made the two word
                short list
                already go to a certain URL. Not in every post, in some.

                Do you think something crazy will happen if I enable your app for all instances of
                short list
                ?
                what will happen where both your Mod and the existing post both direct a certain keyword to the same URL?
                (There would be no instances in my forum where the existing URLs (and the ones I direct within your mod) for any keywords are different - just the same.)

                Thanks!

                  If a certain word is already in a link, the mod will not touch it.

                    So the mod will only replace "short list" in posts where you didn't manually replace with link.
