Embedded URLs are not converted to links in references
Closed, DuplicatePublic


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Edit a page with VisualEditor.
  2. Click InsertBasic Reference.
  3. Paste a text containing a URL, e.g. "From Phabricator project:".

Actual result:
The URL is not a link.

Expected result:
The URL is converted into a link.

Additional information:
This was noted when copying from Google Docs. Even if the URL was a link in Docs, this doesn't carry over when pasting it in the reference popup.

This may be the same issue as T129546.

Are you saying that it works differently when pasting not in the reference dialog?

It looks like it's the same behaviour when pasting content. I don't know if it's the exact same thing behind the scenes.
