Type "fastclick" in your posts. It should automatically make a link to the review thread on fastclick.

It should work for all existing ad network reviews. Tribalfusion has to be one word though, I haven't got it working for two word phrases.

Also, there must be spaces on both sides of the word.

I suggest you do this for the full names of all your sites, and for features such as 'Edit Signiture' 'User CP' and such as if a user asks for help they can click the link in the post with help in. You might also want to add referral links to hosting companies from CJ.com.

I use this on one of my forums (non-webmaster forum) and it works very well.

This is a very cool idea Chris.

Did you just get a PHP script to run through everything when a user posts and looks for the ad network names? or does it just run through pages when they're viewed, or has it been used to change every post in the forum including the names?

Its a vbulletin hack, using the same bit as the censored words bit I believe.

i found problems with the vbulletin hack so i wrote my own... that works nicely. Its not case sensitive doesnt care howyou space your words etc. I find it very handy on my site.

Emancipator, one problem with that is it doesn't allow the URL itself to be posted without them putting in the url tag.

I use something similiar on one of my terms/dictionary sites that I wrote :) I like it.

Wow, this is a really cool hack. I've considered using vb just for a cms because of the robust backend and all the hacks that have been created at vb.org. This is one of my favorites.
