Plugin to make links out of specific words (4 posts)

    I need a plugin that would make links out of specific words in the post automatically. Basically, it would function much like Wikipedia in that certain words that corroborate with other posts or pages on a site would automatically become links when I post. Is there such a thing available? I've searched, but I haven't found anything exactly like this yet.

    There are different ways.

    In the wikipedia all links are marked (with [[]]) after processing a page they replace the markers by links.

    Another possibility is to use a database (or textarray) and search through your html-output for matches.

    The third possibility is written in Javascript and does a client-side search through the webpage.

    I suggest you look for something like #2?

    Thanks for the replies, everyone. I'm going to give the plugin at rudd-o.com/projects/wp-autolink/ a shot and see if that will do the trick.
