I typed a web company in and it came up as a link automatically.

It was ao.com.

Is that meant to happen? I'm on an ipad.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 23-Apr-14 17:31:38

It's just done it again.

Yes. Links are now done automatically.

Fluffycloudland77 Wed 23-Apr-14 17:33:24

So my iPad life support isn't fucked then?

ao.com

No - it's not done an automatic link for me.

Maybe your iPad then?

RustyBear Wed 23-Apr-14 18:56:37

Yes, that is a link on your post Fru!

FruVikingessOla Wed 23-Apr-14 18:57:44

Umm, OK. It didn't do an automatic link when I Previewed, but it's now automatically linked in my post.

I know that MNHQ has instigated an automatic linky thingy, but it hadn't occurred to me that it worked that way blush

<slinks off!>

FruVikingessOla Wed 23-Apr-14 18:58:15

Yeah, I know. See ^^ grin

Oooo look at that!!

FruVikingessOla Wed 23-Apr-14 19:19:23

I'm on a desktop. But I gather the App is being a bit of a PITA ATM!

RuthlessBaggage Wed 23-Apr-14 19:24:25

Ooh the www one worked though.

www.BBC.co.UK ?

RuthlessBaggage Wed 23-Apr-14 19:24:33

angry

FruVikingessOla Wed 23-Apr-14 19:26:27

Just do

bbc.co.uk

without the www etc

Let's see what happens

RuthlessBaggage Wed 23-Apr-14 19:27:41

bbc.co.uk

You know, I hate the app. But I hate mobile site even more.

<grump>

FruVikingessOla Wed 23-Apr-14 19:29:18

Nope, that BBC link didn't work.

But I think the reason my ao.com link worked upthread was because I had linked (as in [[ proper link ]]) to ao.com in a thread a bit earlier today.

Curiouser and curiouser confused

Normally links open in a new tab for me, but your link doesn't, just changes the page - which i don't like at all

That worked for me! I'm on mobile site on an iphone.
bbc.co.uk

Minorchristmascrisis Wed 23-Apr-14 23:08:33

Needs www though

Minorchristmascrisis Wed 23-Apr-14 23:09:15

Was it maybe because you used capitals?

Hello

Yes links will now auto-convert unless you're on the existing app (links will work in the new app, promise)
