Add-On Type(s)



This plugin verifies whether a user entred "http://" in a link field and adds it if the user hasn't.

If you ever have users / clients entering links into fields but have no control over whether or not they are adding in the http:// bit or not then if you try to make a link with one that doesn’t have the http:// bit then you will end up with a totally messed up link as ExpressionEngine will rightly put your site link in front of it. Not very nice at all! grin

So that’s why I made this plugin.

Great for its time (thank you Mark Bowen!), but I use Ellislab’s Valid URL addon to solve the same problem these days.. and other common errors that users make when entering a URL. (It can be found in the TOC of the EE user guide.)
