Hi,

On my site EntropiaPlanets.com, which is a fanforum for the MMORPG Entropia Universe (http://www.entropiaplanets.com) , I run both a forum and a wiki. My idea is to have all interesting keywords from within the game somehow autolinked to the relevant wiki pages. I'm thinking this could easily mean several thousand auto-linking entries.

Is this something that would be a sure way to kill performance on the site, or would the product be able to handle this? I'd be willing to settle for less than absolutely every possible entry, but then let's cut it down to, say, a hundred possible keywords.

Also, would GAL manage to go through my existing pages and change those to have them auto-link?

Cheers :)

Peter

Large/scalable is hard to specify. Here are a couple of threads that might help:

If you add a GAL then it gets added to posts where that keyword appears.
