    I'm using the Comment Plugger plugin.
    It would appear that when a commenter enters their url beginning "www." then WP does not prefix a "http://" to that. Invalid links result.

    I think that's by design. If you want to give people a hint about it, open the file with the comment fields in it (usually comment.php and comment-popup.php - at least in 1.5) and add value="http://" to the URI input box.

    It's odd because it always used to ....... thats why I mentioned it, wasn't sure if a filter or something had been moved ?

    It did used to? Hmm...

    ryoken, yup, now that you mention it, the value would have a little code in there to display a cookie value if any exists. might prove a bit of a problem - unless you added a little more PHP code before the input box checking for the cookie first and assigning it to a variable if it exists, and assigning http:// if it doesn't, then using that variable in the value instead of whatever's there currently.

    Bit of a chore though, especially if it used to stick http:// in front of web addresses anyways...

    Bug reported is:

    (it's not really an admin bug, as the bug report suggests, but because I didn't create an account, I can't change that)
