Links in WordPress Comments not Linking [en]

[fr] Les URLs dans les commentaires de ce blog ne sont pas transformés en liens, alors qu'ils le devraient. Appel aux idées pour résoudre ce problème.

Lazyweb, hear my call!

When people type URLs in my comments, they aren’t converted into links. WordPress should do this, but it’s not doing it. I don’t know where to start troubleshooting.

Suggestions and solutions will be thankfully tried out 🙂

  1. Hmm.

    I guess a plugin you are using might be removing some of the default filters as it does other text processing.

    What plugins are you using espcially ones that do text processing?

  2. The plugin author tells me “not linking” is the desired behaviour of the plugin. In markdown, you need to surround a URL with < and > for it to be made clickable. Well, thanks to westi I’ve managed to make inline URLs clickable — I guess I’ll try to remove the removal of the make_clickable function in the plugin and see what happens then.
