Forum suggestion: auto-link terms to poker glossary


#1

It’d be awesome if the forums could auto-sense popular poker terms, and turn them into links that you can hover over and get a “tool tip”-like callout that explains the term or abbreviation, and links to a glossary if you want to read a full article.

I mean, it’s easy enough to just look it up, but having it an auto-detected and generated hyperlink created by the forum software would be very cool.

Basically, some pre-processing when a post or comment is submitted, that scans the copy, compares words to terms in a dictionary file, and creates links to matches and inserts them into the post.

I don’t know how do-able this would be, probably some work, but to me I think it’d be worth putting some development hours into it, assuming the forum software is extensible through plugins or whatever.
