Auto Hyperlinks?

Is there a way to automatically find the hyperlinks in the document using Textile? If I have http://www.kalisty.com, can it find that link without the special formatting? Is this even advisable? I want to make it easier for people to make links. Instead of having to do "http://www.kalisty.com":http://www.kalisty.com.

One other question. Can I use the Textile markup to set the target of the link?

I think we could easily create a BlockModifier that would find URL strings, and wrap them with an HTML link.... funny, I thought it did that already, but apparently not... I'll add it in the next release. In the meantime, you can create a class inheriting from BlockModifier that would transform the input text as needed. You can register this new BlockModifier using TextileFormatter.RegisterBlockModifier().

I tried to create a BlockModifier to do this.  However, it seems to interfere with the HyperlinkBlockModifier.  I'm sure I'm doing something wrong and I can send you the .cs file I created.  If you are planning on doing this, then I'll wait patiently for the next release.  Any release date?

Thanks

Hey, sorry for the late reply,
We haven't been able to make an auto-hyperlink feature work reliably yet, and it seems most of the other Textile implementations don't do that anyway... so for now, nothing on the horizon, sorry.
