Hi!

Sorry, it isn't a MOD for phpBB, but a custom thingy I made in the portal side. It's based on Drupal, so the back end is very different to easily convert the code for phpBB.

That being said, I also thought about creating a BBCode for phpBB, but that requires time... maybe one of these days.

The link is built with all the AdSense information, so clicks to ads displayed for such searches might compute. The bad news is I do not get too much clicks. lol

you got one from me today Wink

ok i think its because the "G" image is too small, and there is a link before this... so most users donīt mouseover the "G" and click on the link... not sure but i think so...

greetings

Well, yes, a BBCode for phpBB forums. There's already a Google BBCode (by wGEric), but it doesn't use your custom AdSense for Search stuff)...

The "G" is small because it has been deliverately injected into the content.

What I did on my site is inject a filter that parses the content for HTML anchors, extracts their text and builds a new link to "google about it" (using my custom AdSense for Search stuff), that is placed behind the small "G"oogle logo, next to each link.

I mean, the filter is kind of blind in that you can't control what it takes to build "google about it" links. It takes the text of all HTML anchors.

I'm not really happy about this behaviour, so that's basically the reason I haven't made any distributable implementation out of it. The other reason is spare time to work a little bit more on the idea... Wink
