I've Got an idea for a new plugin

It would search the discussion comments for

Thanks @joe @whoever @somebody.

Thx @joe @whoever @somebody.

Thank you @joe @whoever @somebody.

and auto-adds a like or a vote or or an awesome to the username following the thank you, so the user doesn't have to click it. Theoreticaly, it would have the same safeguards of only one vote per user per comment. The only thing I have to work on is to ignore quotes in the reply that had the Thank you

e.g. this would need to be ignored.

Joe said

  Thanks @whoever >

Any suggestions on what plugin to add this feature too, if it was something that was desired. And would it be useful. Or maybe just a standalone thank you plugin with its own internal data.

The thanks could be any word you want and could be internationalized.

I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

    One of the things we've been talking bout internally is making quotes start with a mention and only keeping the outer most quote.

    @Todd - I think the same technique would be good to trap words like wiki and documentation, and a few other words and autolink them, if you follow my gist

    so if a user typed documentation - it would be autolinked directly to your documentation page. A few key words like that or localization, themes. don't know if its something that you want to incorporate. 10 or so words in array with a callback wouldn't seem like it would slow display of messages down.

    I think that's a good idea, but would really want tags to do that. Possible #tagging could actually tag the discussion. So many ideas, so little time.

    One thing about that. can you disable it when someone quotes a mention, you can get notified several times for no reason.

    grep is your friend.

    What we need is a good tagging plugin. I know that Mark made one, but I can't find it on the plugins site and the tagging "enhanced" looks broken. I would really like to integrate this into my search engine plugin, but want the tagging plugin to be solid.

    That is the single issue that has prevented us from adding a mention to the quotes. Suffice it to say I won't program the feature without removing mentions from inner-blockquotes.

    added the auto link plugin. http://vanillaforums.org/addon/autolink-plugin

    could be modified by you guys to read the tag database and links could be added.

    @422 basically mimics some of the functions of the script you posted without any jquery.

    That Plugin is built-in into the Vanilla Core.

    and the tagging "enhanced" looks broken.

    Someone made a new version of that Tagging 'Enhanced' plugin. He mentioned in 3 of the most recent discussions about 'Tagging Enhanced'

    I modified the auto link plugin. http://vanillaforums.org/addon/autolink-plugin -
    and added an option:

    so it reads the tagging database and auto tags any word in a comment that is identical to a tag and make it clickable as a tag.

    @peregrine - am really interested in your autolink plugin. Vanilla 1 had a similar addon that would autolink URLs, see http://vanillaforums.org/addon/437-autolinks

    Can your plugin be modified to do something like this?

    Thanks

    And can anyone tell me if I'm simply overlooking something here...

    Whenever I paste a URL to an image file, it hyperlinks the URL (rather than displaying the image). I'm wondering if this is native behaviour in Vanilla 2?

    If I paste a URL to a YouTube video, the video embeds... so wondering why images don't act the same way?

    Any clues/suggestions for images?

    Images don't automatically turn into the images.

    Thanks @todd - appreciate the reply.

    So it appears it's a plugin that's needed - any plugins fit the bill?
