#930 closed defect (fixed)

Automatic conversion of URLS to Links

Reported by: jedi58 Owned by: gogo
Priority: normal Milestone: Version 1.0
Component: Xinha Core Version:
Severity: normal Keywords: xinha thinspace url link ie6


When set to false (convertUrlsToLinks) URLs are still automatically changed into links when using Internet Explorer 6 (this is not an issue in Firefox 2.0, and haven't tested in IE7).

Example, at the end of a paragraph, typed in:

this was then automatically changed into a link with a URL of: http://www.test.c%u2009om

Note: %u2009 is a "thinspace" character and shouldn't even be present

Did a further test, and the second one ( did not get a thinspace added when being converted - still got converted though!

Tested in IE7, it happens there too

This cannot be turned off in IE. I was not aware of that fact when I made this variable.

I have added a note about that in the code in [711]

What do you mean? Shall we drop the option again in favour of consistent behaviour in both browsers or is it good to have the choice at least in Gecko? Personally I'm a bit annoyed by this behaviour.

For the thinspace issue see #900 (fixed in [712])

It is nice to have consistent behaviour between browsers, yet having the option to have it on or off is also nice - thanks for adding the message though, should help clear up any future confusion.

I've actually gone and tried it in HTMLArea 3 and it was the same in there too, just never noticed!

My thoughts would be to leave it as it is, I would have thought the comment would be enough?

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

Just a note on this, in Gecko when it auto-links something, you can hit Escape or CTRL-Z (undo) immediately after it autolinks and it will unlink it.

Doesn't do it in IE though as far as I remember.

Anyway, looks like this can be closed now.
