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

Kudos to Kevin Pettitt.

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

  • using Notes 8
  • with RichText as Posting Type and
  • within [ [...] ] marked HTML code.

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

This might make sense in simple emails
and such, but converting [ [<img src="http://www.assono.de/blog/..."
...>] ] to <img src="<a href="http://www.assono.de/blog/..."
...> 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 ?!).

Update:

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
field.


Update 2:

In the meantime Kevin has written a blog post about this subject himself:
