Hyperlink

Post by Mustansir Billah » September 24th, 2013, 12:32 pm

Farhan sb. and other moderator of the forum I am actually thinking that why not make a hyperlink of all the plants name that are discussed in any post and Relate them to flora pakistan Database. It will be beneficial in accordance that one is seeking or learning about a new plant and want to know its detail and physical appearance will know it with ease.
Regards,
Mustansir

Do you think its that easy? every link has to be edited manually for each name/plant

If post text is stored in database(which i think yes) then it can be done with database queries. But that will do only existing posts. I will check if there is any mod of phpbb which might do that.

Lovely. Would these be interlinked or linked to entry in database?

For testing, i have linked the word "gerbera" with its related entry url. Let's see if everything is working properly then we will go ahead. Two things need to improve, 1- color of hyperlink is not so attractive which i can change. 2- The link does not open in new window but same window which i can try to resolve.

@farhan linked url will be provided by us, any internet link. You can configure these by going to "posting" tab in ACP and clicking on "AUTOLINK_MOD". Let me know how it goes.
