I'm using the auto_link method in Rails to turn urls in plain text to clickable links. It works pretty good most of the time.
google.com doesn't create a link
Is there something else out there that provides better coverage of urls? Or is there anyway I can easily modify the Rails code to include .coms and .net without a http or www start string?
auto_link uses AUTO_LINK_RE which you can override.
you can place a file in config/initializers
It should work, but I never tried myself.
