I'd herewith like to support a request for enhancement found on the mailinglist
as of December 2003. Currently telnet://...-URLs are not highlighted (clickable)
as are ftp/http/https-URLs. Would it be possible to maybe add telnet:// ssh://
sip:// and maybe other commonly used URLs that you can think of?
You can customise the external URL protocols with $wgUrlProtocols in
LocalSettings.php; see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:%24wgUrlProtocols for
The quoted protocols wouldn't be enabled on most wikis except for special cases.
In said cases, the configuration variable used above can be altered to allow for
it. I see no convincing reason to include them in the default set.
Okay then. I didn't see a point in not adding commonly used protocols - but I
agree they are not that broadly used.
