application launch URLs not rendered as link
Added by Richard Pecl about 14 years ago.
Updated about 14 years ago.
There are URLs that launch 3rd party application when clicked on in the browser.
Redmine's wiki doesn't convert them into clickable link.
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203">Document X</a>
launches application called EasyArchive and shows document identified by the numbers following
Maybe feature #2084 can fix this problem, since there is no simple conclusion how such links in general can be distinguished from regular text.
I can't see why you entered this as a defect and I don't see what differs from #2084.
Please help me.
I have marked this as defect since something like
ea:1|50194|1|1607%203 is regular URL handled by browsers. So when I enter in the Wiki text like
"Link to document":ea:1|50194|1|1607%203
it should be formatted to
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203" class="external">ea:1|50194|1|1607%203</a>
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203" class="external">Link to document</a>
like all other
ftp:// links are.
So in general the formatter should recognize not only
/ftps?:\/\/.*/ links, but also
#2084 can solve this issue, but as a workaround (and with much more coding work).
Perhaps it could be marked as Feature request if you consider parsing such type of links as new functionality.
