Restored short url feature with slight modification

Postby Canteloupe » Wed Nov 26, 2008 9:47 am

The make clickable function has been altered so that, in the handling of extensive urls, the domain bit is included in the shortened version, rather than arbitrarily lopped off.

This is for those who can't be bothered to set a proper link in their posts, prefering instead to slop the url into their posts in it's most gruesome raw form.

The previous mod just inserted the word 'link' into the post. It was an economical workaround but not very descriptive. Of course, the most descriptive is a properly formed link.

In any event, here are a couple of examples where urls exceed a set length:

So far as I can remember, there is not one word in the Gospels in praise of intelligence. — Bertrand Russell

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed — and hence clamorous to be led to safety — by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. — H.L. Mencken
