It would be interesting to allow administrators to define custom fields that transform the input in a link. That would be quite useful to link to another external resource.

Here is a way to turn all custom fields into textiled fields:

[source:trunk/app/helpers/issues_helper.rb#L82], change simple_format_without_paragraph into textilizable.

This displays all custom fields as wiki fields.

Making it optional is probably more complex... But having it for all should be all right, at least as a start, no?

Hi, i have the same demand.
But in the 0.9.3 version, the source of issues_helper.rb is not the same at all.
I can't find simple_format_without_paragraph.

I've search in all helpers files:

Search "simple_format_without_paragraph" (2 hits in 2 files)
  \apps\redmine\app\helpers\wiki_helper.rb (1 hits)
    Line 54:     simple_format_without_paragraph(words.join(' '))
  \apps\redmine\app\helpers\application_helper.rb (1 hits)
    Line 475:   def simple_format_without_paragraph(text)

I've been working on a few ideas to do this. I'm hoping to get it to a point where plugins can add their own.

Here's a prototype plugin where I'm working on for this exact problem: http://github.com/edavis10/redmine_url_custom_field

I'm glad you've found another way to do this.

I am impatient to see the result.
