Using either editor, I'm experiencing urls not autolinking on a random basis.
  • Works sometimes (showing page name with proper link if you click),
  • sometimes not (and just showing the url)…
Example:
The urls under Mentioned on these pages: were linking until I just added one.
Donald Trump - The Virtual Front Porch
  • Could something have changed with the last minor upgrade?
Hoping there's an alternative to using the actual linking button.
  • auto linking urls is a great time saver!

Thanks in advance for any ideas…

It's not just wiki pages.
I tried adding to a comcode page and the links were there and now they are gone…

Hi,

With the WYSIWYG there is a very complex set of conditions determining whether auto-linking happens.

If you disable that, and still have 'semihtml' rather than pure Comcode text then the same conditions apply.

In short, if you use the WYSIWYG you should be prepared to use the linker button in the toolbar. WYSIWYG produces HTML soup and Composr cannot reliably probe into HTML soup and determine what is a written text link to auto-link (as opposed to perhaps an element attribute, or part of some JavaScript code).


Become a fan of Composr on Facebook or add me as a friend. Add me on on Twitter. Follow me on Minds (where I am most active). Support me on Patreon

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
