Confiforms wyswyg editor for automatic detection of URL

Jay Moon March 23, 2024

I love everything about confiforms and I use it for many workflow in my team. One biggest trouble is wyswyg editor. In confluence page, like email tools, note app, it automatically detect URL and create link. This is not the case for wyswyg editor. I know I can use editor to attach links for a given URL text but this is cumbersome. When I copy and paste texts from other tools, wyswyg takes them correctly, maintaining format. But when typing directly in wyswyg editor, it doesn’t. HTML editing within wyswyg editor can do all but this is not the efficient way. I am really hoping confluence style editor available for confiforms. There are many occasions I have to drop confiforms in the flow due to this one problem.

Hi @Jay Moon 

Since version 3.9.0 of ConfiForms we have introduced a new WYSIWYG editor with support for auto-links, basic tables and more

(also available in ConfiForms cloud, of course)

Probably you are on an older version of the plugin, at the moment?

That's great to hear. It is possible we have older version. How can I check the version? Thanks again, Alex.

Thanks. I found our installation is using 3.5.4. I will follow up with confluence admin to install newer version and try out. Thanks again.

In my company, not only https, but also many custom url like sth://somethingelse, opening related tools. This works well (automatic clickable link) in confluence pages but I have to create link in wyswyg editor manually. Hope my description makes sense.
