URLs in entries no longer clickable

We're running FogBUGZ Version 3.1.9 (DB 328), to which we upgraded recently.

It used to be the case that if I entered a URL in the textarea field while editing a case, the URL turned into a clickable link. With 3.1.9 that has stopped working. These are quite normal URLs: I tried http://www.qurb.com/ as a test.

Is this a preference we accidentally turned off? (I'm not the admin for our FogBUGZ installation so I wouldn't know. But our admin is not aware of any such change.)

Or have I discovered a regression?

You discovered a typo.  In 3.1.9 we added support for ms-help style urls.  The regular expression pattern has a typo in it though that prevents urls from being highlighted.

You can fix this now by doing the following.

Open util.asp in a text editor (in the fogbugz\website directory).  Look for the function TranslateTextIntoLinks.

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

(Notice where the ? mark is in the new line.. thats the typo)
