The problem

 

When somebody is answering a question with a link it is often a 'bit.ly' link. Bit.lys are often very easy to type, eg.

bit.ly/giffgaffagent

 

However, to put a link in you have to add 'http://' before it for it to be recognized. This is time consuming and is even harder on mobiles. http://bit.ly/giffgaffagent - It takes over twice the amount of time to type!

 

The solution

 

As on twitter and facebook, I propose that links without http:// are 'hyperlinked' to increase the speed of answers and ease of creating links! I believe this can be possible as on other forums it is!

 

If you support please kudo! :smileyhappy:

@pw1987 I've never seen a phone that will do that, and we don't want giffgaff to become biased towards users who can afford high-end phones.

 

@930913 @tim74 Could it not just search for a very limited combination of letters and dots in posts? I know this is a slight change to the idea, but what if it was limited to community.giffgaff.com, support.giffgaff.com, o2.co.uk and bit.ly? Hope this amendment is okay with the OP :/
