Automatically turns plaintext URLs and email addresses into links. This plugin seeks to replace and extend WordPress’s default auto-hyperlinking function. This plugin uses different pattern matching expressions than the WordPress default in order to prevent inappropriate adjacent characters from becoming part of the link (as WordPress has improved over the years, nowadays this is just a few edge cases like text links that are braced or bracketed) and it prevents invalid URIs (i.e. http://blah) from becoming links. More significantly, this plugin adds configurability to the auto-hyperlinker such that you can configure: If you want text URLs to only show the hostname If you want text URLs truncated after N characters If you want auto-hyperlinked URLs to open in new browser window or not If you want the URI scheme (i.e. “http://”) to be stripped for displayed links The text to come before and after the link text for truncated links If you want rel=”nofollow” to be supported If you wish to support additional domain extensions not already configured into the plugin If you want certain domains to be omitted from auto-linking This plugin will recognize any explicit URI scheme (http|https|ftp|news)://, etc, as well as email addresses. It also adds the new ability to recognize Class B domain references (i.e. “somesite.net”, not just domains prepended with “www.”) as valid links (i.e....
