Custom user field: Value Match Requirements: URL

    When I make a custom user field and set Value Match Requirements: URL, the URL
    is not clickable on the use profile.

    I do not understand why? There should no reason to make a URL requirement option if the
    visitors cannot click on the URL anyway. Perhaps there is a solution for this? Thanks in advance.

    the value match requirement is only for the validation of the field.

    you'll need to set the "display html" option
    something like
    Code:
    <a href="{$value}">{$value}</a>

    {$valueUrl} is sometimes more appropriate.

    <a href="{$valueUrl}">{$value}</a>

    Same content, but it encodes the value specifically for use in a URL.

    Thanks to both of you. Chris, unfortunately it did not work the valueURL, but it worked with ragteks code.
