Auto-link Hijacker soon available from Moodle plugins directory
 
It's been quite a long time but I finally registered the plugin in the Moodle plugins directory: https://moodle.org/plugins/view.php?plugin=filter_autolinkhijacker - still waiting for approval, so stay tuned.

For a start I registered the Moodle 2.0 version of the filter. I'm working on updating the filter for more current Moodle versions. And the 1.9 version is also still available (all from https://github.com/nakohdo/moodle-filter_autolinkhijacker).

Cheers,
Frank

Hi Frank,

Thanks great news!

I've moved your post to a new discussion because the old one was very long and not only on this topic.

Could you explain again what your plugin does? It is explained in the old discussion but it's quite difficult to find the post.

Thanks,

Glenys

Hi Glenys,

Thanks for your feedback. I think I'll start some more permanent documentation somewhere on Moodle Docs (linked from the plug-in page) and also add to the readme file included with the plugin.

Hi Frank and everybody,

Then I'll just copy here what I wrote in 2011 - so that people have some idea of what it is:

Frank, you're not a very good salesman for your filter! wink

For people who've come late to this discussion, Frank's talking about his Auto-link Hijacker for Moodle 1.9 and 2.0. This is a filter which shamelessly (Frank's word) hijacks the glossary auto-linking by replacing all auto-linked URLs by another one.

Here are his instructions : "Unzip the file and copy the folder in your Moodle's filter directory. Then activate the filter and make sure glossary auto-linking is also enabled and comes before the Forvo filter.

There's also a settings page where you can change the target URL, e.g. from Forvo to Howjsay."

Forvo and Howjsay (online pronouncing dictionaries) are just examples.

There's also a discussion on another forum: Glossary Auto-Linking with MediaWiki Integration?

This is what it looks like:

Thanks for all this work, Frank.

Cheers,

Glenys

Many thanks for your effort, Glenys!

But as the old developer adage says "You should put your documentation where the code is", so I started the documentation for this filter at https://github.com/nakohdo/moodle-filter_autolinkhijacker/wiki wink

Cheers,
Frank

Auto-link Hijacker for Moodle 2.5 available on GitHub
 
A first working version of the filter for Moodle 2.5 is available from GitHub:

https://github.com/nakohdo/moodle-filter_autolinkhijacker/tree/MOODLE_25_STABLE

Somewhere between 2.0 and 2.5 the coding standards for filters changed, but I don't now at which point. So if you use a Moodle 2.1 to 2.4 version either the 2.0 or the 2.5 version of the filter should work. Please report back so I can make proper releases for each Moodle version.
