[resolved] URL to link? (8 posts)

    In comments, if I write a full URL it automatically becomes a link. Is there a way to enable that in the posts, too? Perhaps a plugin for that?

    Did you check out the Plugins section in the Codex?

    Yes I did. Was there something that I didn't notice?

    There a couple here:

    You define the term - say "Hotel" and each time you use that word, WP autolinks it for you. That what you meant ?

    Or did you mean something else ?

    No, I'm sorry. That's not what I mean.

    I mean that as in your reply you gave URLs which automatically were transformed into links. The same happens if I post an URL in the comments of my blog.

    However, the same thing does not work in the posts itself. I wonder if there is a way to enable that function for posts, too.

    Perhaps one could use optional fields to do this?

    If I want an URL in the end of each post, perhaps I could make an optional field for that. Is it possible to apply some rules to those fields, eg. that an URL in the field would automatically be transformed into a link?

    It can't be that difficult... It already works in comments. What's the magic to make it work also in posts?

    See for instance here (it's my test blog):


    The very same URL twice: in the post itself it's not a link but in a comment it is. Why not in post, too?

    Well, I finally found a plugin for that:


    I installed it to my test blog and it seems to work.

    There is also some previous discussion about the subject:
