    when a url arrives in an instant message, is there any way to make it live and clickable to the browser?

    right now the link is dead text and I have to copy the message, paste it into a memo, and copy out just the url part

    Yes, tap on the link which will take you to the website, tap on the url at the top of the page, then copy the url and paste it in you're browser.

    See how that work for you.

    cheers~

    This happened somewhere in teh last few OS updates and afffected my TechTray app which generates a URL for SMS:

    Solution is to use a ' mark so something like:

    BP declares oil well dead: 'http://www.cnn.com/ladskfjadjf etc.

    That makes the link clickable and is being deployed in my next app update.
    EDIT: URL can't be super long either (that wasn't a problem before, but is now). Solution: Use a URL shortening utility like TinyURL

    He said it's dead text, which means tapping the URL won't do anything and copting and pasting is what he's already doing.

    Do the links have the full URL, including the http?

    Yes the link is complete http://blah.com/blah/blah
    I was hoping that, even if messaging were lacking in this regard, there'd be a patch that could parse a message for http and link the text

    What messaging are using?

    Because this certainly isn't normally lacking in SMS texts, stuff always comes in to me clickable and so does what I send out.

    i seem to remember links being clickable in IM's as well. i can't verify right now because i don't have my phone with me. (i know, it feels weird, and i'm a little sketched out, but i'll be okay when i get it tomorrow.)

    I don't use IM, so I can't say on that.

    I use gchat pretty regularly on my pre... as well as SMS... people send me a lot of youtube links and such... I cant remember a time when one of them wasnt "clickable" in IM.

    For you? Anything

    Actually... that doesnt solve the original posters problem though... Im not real sure why his links arent coming through live and clickable. perhaps the sender isnt typing out the http:// portion or some such...

    LOL! I can live with that response.

    And no, if you read my other posts, I asked about the http.

    I'm thinking something is just screwed up and a WebOS Repair might be needed.
