A plugin that automatically hyperlinks selected words to defined URLs with multilingual support. The hyperlinking process works in posts and comments (given as an option). Offers blogroll links import, direct linking to posts/pages, allows assigning attributes to each link, activation and deactivation of any word/language, replacement of words (strings) along with append/prepend function which can be run over posts and comments. As an addition, plugin offers in-depth settings such as management of ignored HTML tags and “divide by” strings as well as backup management.


  1. Upload downloaded files to the ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory. So that you should see something like ‘/wp-content/plugins/cross-linker/’ there.
  2. If you aren’t using any of previous versions yet, activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress. If you’re already using some of the previous versions, then there is no need to activate it. Deactivation is not necessary for upgrading to a newer version.


Does this plugin hyperlink all words?

All words which fit specified criteria are hyperlinked. Firstly, the word must be a real “word”. So it must be divided from other characters clearly. Say that you want to hyperlink ‘design’ only. In such case, all ‘design’ words will be hyperlinked, but ‘designers’ not (if they’re not hyperlinked too). All characters which divide words can be modified.

Which MySQL tables belong to this plugin?

All which contain _interlinker in their name. However, we are not responsible for others plugins which may use these names (although not likely). Since version 1.2 all tables are created after activation and they are NOT deleted later. This is because some people deactivated this plugin and so they lost all data within. Later after re-activating it they (people) were missing such data.
