    Check for a link

    I have a chat, and when someone posts a link, i would like it to convert it to [link] which would be clickable, instead of having a big long URL.. how would i go about doing that?

    Your going to want to check out regular expressions.
    Good luck with that. Learn how yourself or get one of the masters to help you out.

    How does the script look currently?
    Maybe it just needs a tweak?

    Cheers
    Thanks for you support!

    Best way? Search the forums of course, this has been discussed many times. There have been some very decent patterns posted in the past.
