  • Question about automatic text to hyperlinks

    Hi,
    I run a deal discussion site and I was curious if VB is able to do the following:

    Lets say somebody types in "Amazon"
    Is there a way that VB can automatically change that to www.amazon.com ?

    I am asking this because it would be great if I could get VB to automatically insert my affiliate links so I can get credit for sales.

    Thanks!

    Yes, you can use replacements to do this. The problem though is that if someone uses the word 'Amazon' in a thread title, this will mess up the link to that thread.

      I would imagine it would be a pretty simple mod to fix that...

      I'm trying it out in the Admin test forums but I can't seem to get it to work at all.
      Also, can you use wildcards in Replacements?

        No. You can replace specific text with text.
