If found create link

I volunteer on a forum about classic movies. We have a separate thread with the filmography of actors. Was hoping to be able to add a link to the end of a link that link is found.

So say if Paul Newman was found then at the end of the link given it would populate another link to his filmography page. I would be doing this for maybe hundreds of actors so would need to be able to easily add to it.

Maybe using the IMDB NM####### as the link point?

I broke the link at the front so you can see the code.

< a target=blank href="https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0000056/">Paul Newman - David Alfred Eaton
< a target=
blank href="https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0940946/">Joanne Woodward - Mary St. John
< a target=_blank href="https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0001485/">Myrna Loy - Martha Eaton

if I'm not miss understanding, your require is: edit "thread"(or threads) post in forum, make other people see the change?

No. This is personal as since I moderate a forum it would help if there was a link that can be created so I can click on to jump to that link instead of digging through a few pages to get to it. Right now I would have to open a new page. Click on a bookmark. Get to main index page. Search for said actor. Then click on their link to search the page.

The idea is to simplify setting up a set of links that can be managed so as to save time. While this would work well for me I can easily see people setting up their own triggers for their own reasons.

Think of this script being a js personal wiki.
