Will 1.5 automatically recognize base URLs that do not include a subdomain like www. in them as links?
So current vapingblips.com does not automatically like but Vaping Blips does. With the current trend (and google recommendation) being to stop using www in the URL this is starting to cause more instances of people posting site references that do not automatically get linked.
I would be great to see XF automatically detect and link all major top level domains like .com, .org, .gov, etc...
Interesting... I was basing the google part of the comment on common hearsay I saw on some admin sites but now that I try to find a reference I see that it is simply webmaster preference and google doesn't care.
Either way, the question/request still stands. Users frequently post site names without www and they don't currently get recognized as URLs and it would be useful if they would be.
The only way is to have the text be different than the link. You could do that with BB code or wrapping the link (but inside the link with plain tags for example. I will admit it does catch me out occasionally.
Laziest way is to omit or add something from/to the end of the link, e.g. remove the trailing slash from the text you paste into the editor, then convert that text to a link using the hyperlink button on the editor: https://xenforo.com/community/tags/customization
Having played around with this some more, I discovered that the easiest way to make a URL show when required with auto link title enabled is to simply add a space before or after the URL and include that in the selection when linking.
Yes I do and I'll post them.
Members post all sorts of links that include # !| and so on and this is where it becomes a mess.
The feature otherwise is long awaited and I love it, but you need to include more case scenario where for example links to some sites include various tracking parameters.
