Smartlinker is a toolbar on the WordPress TinyMCE editor that enables you to
hyperlink words and phrases in your blog. Type word/phrase, select and right
click to get a list of hyperlinks (see screenshot).
A word/phrase can be the name of a person, place or thing. The web pages (17.2 million) are crawled from the world wide web.
The choice of a web page is guided by criterias like availibility of a picture describing the word, quality of description,
formatting and lack of advertisements/popups on the web page. The objective is to pick web pages that have an “educational” feel. The hyperlinks are not ads.
This is release 3.0.

again after sometime.

Please try refreshing the browser on the WordPress Editor after enabling the
plugin from the “Plugins” screen. If it still does not work, close all
browser windows, remove the “smartlinker” directory from the
“wp-content/plugins” directory, and reinstall the plugin from
