Each time a user is posting a link in a post, if you want the link to be identified as is, a good Web2.0 technique is to identify the link with an icon.
The problem is that vBulletin do not put a class to the bbcode which generate the links in posts… we provide a solution here…
… You can go to >> Google or not!
This will work in posts, but also in private messages…
note: 17/06/09, updated to 1.0.1, modifyed the HowTo.txt — read and redo what it say, to avoid applying the tag to IMG tags… thanks to [user]xOBKx[/user]
note: 10/22/09: updated the link in HowTo.txt so the addon will not add an icon on local links *(the ones on your site), thanks to [user]Taragon[/user] for the idea
note: dec. 5th, 2009: updated the css detail to avoid a typo that cause html validator to hate me!
note: dec. 8th, 2009: now version 1.5, have a local/external detector that will change the icon… you can still modify the whole css and icons if you like.
