Hello!


Having a really good time with AutoWords, it's absolutely terrific - however I'm running into a very specific need, and that is alongside Case Sensitivity:

Is it possible to have an extra option to ignore spaces please?

So that "Sphere 3D" would be the same as "Sphere3D"... (I can set it up twice, but I am building hundreds of entries, so that would be a little much)

And for bonus points, "Round Sphere 3D" would be the same as "RoundSphere 3D" and the same as "Round Sphere3D" - but no priority if that would make things harder...

Thank you!

What would also be great is an overall on/off switch in the ACP so you can go in and edit all the settings without accidentally causing dead links (running into the issue now that I'm configuring this over several days and toying with link locations, so I'm enabling/disabling the extension all the time).

Actually an option to ignore certain characters would maybe be more useful as a feature as just "Ignore Spaces"?

Say you want to ignore brackets for example...

(Hope you don't mind my continuous train of thought)

On the contrary, proposals for improvement are appreciated. You can put all the ideas you can think of, when I get around to the next version I will review them and evaluate how to add them.

Great, thank you!

I ran into another small issue: AutoWords matches word parts:

Here I've defined "Path" as an AutoWord, and it will partly mark words such as "filepath" as well...

In the meantime, I wanted to say thank you as well - I'm putting AutoWords through some serious testing :

and not a hint of performance issues, it works really really nicely and totally transparent and fast - great work!

OK and here is a BIG request, maybe to consider for the future of this application (really, it's fantastic, it can entirely transform a forum!):

Per-forum AutoWords.

Say you have a forum that deals with two entirely different topics: as an example you have a video forum, and an audio forum. The AutoWords for Video would be entirely different from the ones in Audio. So if you could assign AutoWords to one forum, and other AutoWords to another...

Good night!

Bug report - AutoWords doesn't work in topics that have a poll?
