After searching at length  for a Joomla component that automatically adds  links and tooltips to keywords  in articles I couldn't find anything that suited my needs so I decided to develop the extension myself and learn a new skill  at the same time.

The  result is the Autolinks extension for Joomla which has been released  today. If you are interested in using this extension it is free to download and use.

Developing this extension has refreshed my PHP programming skills and has taught me a lot about developing components and plugins for Joomla which is a skill I can use wherever I am so long as I have access to the web.

The bonus is that this is something I actually enjoy doing and am already planning  enhancements to Autolinks and a number of new programming projects.
