This probably maraoku related regression. With older releases the http://url and mailto@nowhere.com were automatically made proper html tags.

We have wiki starting from 0.7 releases so we cannot easily switch to different markup language.

Autolinking was disabled in Revision 166 because the autolinking code sucked.

Anyone who wants to try fixing the code, so that it isn't as ridiculously slow, and is guaranteed not to produce ill-formed XHTML output, is welcome to do so. If they succeed, I'll re-enable auto-linking.

@villem

Ok. Thanks for this pointer. We might enable this in our wiki. We do not use any advanced new features that has come since 0.7.

@villem

You can close this one. It seems that comment and close is not working for me.

Only Matthias or I can close issues.

As you have discovered, it's easy-enough to re-enable Autolinking-support. If this really does not cause any problems in the Textile formatter (it definitely causes problems with the Markdown formatter, and with the "advanced" new features), we might consider re-enabling it for Textile only.

Therefore, I think I will keep this issue open, as a reminder.

@villem

I tried to re-enable the autolink code e.g just revert the commit http://github.com/parasew/instiki/commit/3a3cfeaa9b43a15e7cfbb90113465ab6f258e968. But this did not enable autolinking. Maybe I need to revert more?
