The problem


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


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. - 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,, and Hope this amendment is okay with the OP :/
