In the following comment I posted a hyperlink to a secure web site address ("https" prefix).

[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/playstation-3-250gb-console-with-mo/839655?p=10243133 ]

The link I used was:
[ https://secure.eu.playstation.com/psn/mypsn/ ]

It is not automatically converted to a hyperlink seen when typing non-secure hyperlink addresses such as:

[ http://secure.eu.playstation.com/psn/mypsn/ ]


Thanks Fp, one of the devs will update once they've more info on this
You're welcome, j_b.

Best wishes,


PS. A similar issue, as seen in the same thread:

[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/playstation-3-250gb-console-with-mo/839655?p=10243413 ]

A hyperlink, this time, contains a "tilde" character ("~"):

Another issue with quoting hyperlinks seen here:

Comment #12370:
[ http://www.hotukdeals.com/misc/battlefield-bad-company-2-killzone/624991?p=11109106 ]

Comment #12369 has a hyperlink originally typed/formatted as follows:

When this comment is quoted the space character between the colon at the end of "here" & the start of the "http://" address syntax is included in the quoted hyperlink.

The resultant hyperlink, when clicked, directs to...

Note: Also changed the title of this thread from:
"[BUG]: Secure HTTP Addresses Not Parsed Automatically"

to what I had originally typed:
"[BUG]: Secure HTTP addresses not parsed automatically"

Yet another example of "Mod Helper" intervention.


Another automatically-parsed hyperlink failure...

The converted hyperlink stops at the first apostrophe character.

"dot info" addresses are not automatically parsed to "mailto" hyperlinks correctly. The link stops after ".in".

I have just received some e-mail spam (from [email protected]) about winning an iPad 2 directed to the e-mail address I used solely for registering at [ http://brinkthegame.com ].

I wonder how long it will be before an e-mail address-harvesting "bot" reaches this comment & reads [email protected]?

Not long I hope.

The .in problem should be fixed now. Enjoy, Citizens.
