Quick Tip: $DontAutoProcessURL avoids auto-creation of URL hotspots (Update 2)

by Thomas,
assono GmbH, Standort Kiel,

Kudos to Kevin Pettitt.

For some time I struggled with our Blogsphere-based blog , when saving post

there is a http:/..., it is converted to a URL hotspot.

This might make sense in simple emails
and such, but converting [ [<img src=""
...>] ] to <img src="<a href=""
...> is more than annoying.

But since IBM did it, there is a "compatibility
switch" to get the old behaviour into Notes 8: $DontAutoProcessURL

The form must contain a text field $DontAutoProcessURL
with a value of "1" (text) and everything works as before.

Kevin (re)implemented the fix in the
Blogsphere template for the next version (RC1 ?!).

, Kevin


What I forgot to mention: Developers
of combined Notes client & Domino Web applications (like a typical
CMS app) should pay attention to the changed behavior of the handling of
http:/ / in RichText fields - or add the $DontAutoProcessURL text

Update 2:

In the meantime Kevin has written a blog post about this subject himself:
in Notes 8: How To Get URLs Working in Rich Text Posts
