    Default BBCode to Search Links?

    Is there any way of making a BBCode to search the links directory? If possible, I'd like people to be able to link to a search of the links directory from the forum.

    To put an example to it, newbie posts asking if someone knows of any good vBulletin forums. Other member posts [link="vbulletin"]check the links directory![/link] or [link]vbulletin[/link] with the bbcode linking to the Links Directory search results.

    Is it possible, or shall we just put up with the confused newbies for a bit longer?



    If this should be in the "Hacks and Modifications" forum please move it so

    Shouldn't be hard to add if you use this code in the 'Replacement' section for your new BB code.
    <a href="/links/search.php?do=searchresults&amp;quicksearch=1&amp;string={param}">{param}</a>
    Note you may need to change the URL in that code if you've installed the links directory in a different location than /links on your server.

    Sorted, cheers Brian. One change I made was to change the first {param} to {option}. Should be veeery useful
