urlToLink jQuery Plugin

A jQuery plugin that transforms URLs in text into HTML <a> elements.

How to use

Assuming that you have already inserted jquery.js and jquery.urlToLink.js in your code and that $ is your jQuery object reference.

Simple usage:
$('p').urlToLink();

Changing the parameters:
$('p').urlToLink({target:'_blank'});

You can change the default parameters by calling $.fn.urlToLink.defaults anywhere in your script and passing an array to it.
Example:
$.fn.urlToLink.defaults = { target:'_blank'}
