Post subject: Auto-Link WikiNames to Wiki Pages


I am running a heavily modified version of 2.0.23 for a small, private community forum. I recently also installed a WikkaWiki on our domain for the community's use and would like to find a way of integrating them better.

There was a Wiki BBCode Mod for phpBB2 which I attempted to install and modify further to link to our own wiki rather than Wikipedia pages but it required the Multiple BBCode Mod to work, and I was unable to make some of the code changes required by the latter Mod (either because of the large number of code changes I've already made or because the Mod had not been updated for some time to keep up with phpBB2 itself... I'm not sure).

Anyway, I'm now wondering if anyone can think of a way that I can modify my forum to recognize WikiName (i.e. CamelCase) strings auto-link them by appending the WikiName to the base URL of the WikkaWiki installation, so that my forum users can quickly move between the post and the wiki page?

Any suggestions are appreciated, and I can provide code from specific phpBB files here if you need to see how heavily modified they are.

Oh, and a general note of appreciation: I'm so glad that I'm not the only one who decided to stick with phpBB2. Thanks to everyone who set up this website!
