Plain URLs not working in comments?
That is currently the case - you cannot mix Markdown and plain urls. Hopefully we'll implement an in line editor to unify the two methods, but the assumption was that people would not be trying to use both in one post. Guess we were wrong =P
Seems to work for me.
Plain URL: http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/bsc/ejournal/tm_08/chrysops17.htm
Markdown: Deer flies
Huh. Didn't work that time: http://www.biology.ualberta.ca/bsc/ejournal/tm_08/chrysops17.htm
Could be. Let's try again:
Edit: That seems like it might be the case!
Yep, I was surprised how quickly Bchan could come by with a workaround for the escaping issue. Seems like they just deactivate the interpretation of raw urls if corresponding markup is present in order to avoid the ">" problem. Makes sense once you know it.
Yep, that's it. I noticed that a few days ago on a different post; you can't mix.
It works for me here, but i cannot make it work in comments, am i missing something?
