[No Bug] <other> URL option not working in the RTE

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 

Reproducibility:

Yes.

 

Repro Steps:

I tried to link something using the <other> option in the URL link section. This is the link:

irc://irc.synirc.net/chimpchallenge

 

Expected:

When the post is submitted, a user should be able to click the link (and for this one in particular, the appropriate channel should open in an IRC client if you have one installed).

 

However, it's highlighted text, but there's no link. Here's the example:

IRC Link

 

Untitled.png

 

Notes:

IE9, Windows 7

 

URL:

irc://irc.synirc.net/chimpchallenge

Not something we can fix.  That is a native feature of the editor, not something we added.

It doesn't explain what that protocol really does, but since it is a protocol and not a program launcher I do not imagine that it has any way of automagically opening whatever unspecified 3rd party client there is installed on your computer.

Is there any documentation available? What would work, if irc:// doesn't?

Not unless it's on that site.  I'm asking to see if anyone here has a better idea on that, it's never come up before.

For the bolded section, I just mean that if you paste the link into your browser, if you have an IRC client installed, it automatically launches.

I sent an email to the dev who is most likely to know, I'll let you know what I hear from him tomorrow (it's 11pm so doubt it'll be today).

Cool. I'll bump this up in a day or so then. :)

Looks like it would take a bit of work.  It's not a bug but we'll see if we can squeeze in the functionality in the next weeks.
