If the add-on does what you want, you can still use it.

If you have any other questions, start a new thread. This is all completely off topic.

What Lemminator means is that:

will work: Google - thats ok. (y)

dont work, it givs me a www.google.de instead of a Google - thats not ok (n)

I think the point is - your feature is realy nice, but many (the most?) members post links without
bevor the domain. Thats normaly ok - Xenforo make this also to be a clickable link. But your new link feature dosnt work with these "simplyfied" links.

Why? :unsure:

I know what Lemminator means. It's working as expected.

Technically speaking www.google.de is not a valid URL. It is converted to one automatically. The URL is converted to http://www.google.de and www.google.de is assumed to be the title they chose for the link to have. As such, the title does not need to be fetched automatically.

As I stated, being that this is a bug report for a specific issue, please start a new thread should you have any further questions but at this stage this is likely needing to be a Suggestion because it's working as designed and there aren't currently any plans to change it at the moment.
