Automatic hyperlinking?

I've read severl postings that refer to being able to embed URLs in FogBUGZ cases but my installation does not turn them into hyperlinks.

Is there something I have to do to the installation or the way I enter the URLs to turn these into clickable hyperlinks?

Just type

http://anything.foo.com

I haven't been able to get auto-hyperlinking working either. I edit a case, type in a URL, OK it and then it just appears as plain text.

Aha. util.asp line 609, changing:

re.Pattern = "((file|ftp|https|ms-help?)\:\/\/[^\s\<\>\)]*)"

to:

re.Pattern = "((file|ftp|https|http|ms-help?)\:\/\/[^\s\<\>\)]*)"

Seems to get the auto-hyperlinking working. (I'm using version 3.1.9 (DB 328) ).

Sorry about that, yes, for 3.1.9 there is that typo that prevents it from recognizing http urls.  Just make the change above in the source.
