A post on our forum had this typo error. The poster erroneously did not leave a space between 'period' and 'It'
SMF has deduced that a website is being referred to with the TLD extension ".it"

Don't know if this can be classified as a bug. 

SMF 2.1.4 / TP 2.2.2

It happens with every extension, I haven't seen a discussion about that.
It's definitely not a bug, but could be an unintended feature from the editor, or an intended feature added by a dev?

I don't know, but let's take WhatsApp example. If you accidentally forget to put a space after a period and the next word is short enough, it'll be interpreted as a link. I don't really think this is a bug, it's just the way it's done.

After the changes in domain sector (aka you can create you own domain if you pay well enough), developers changed the behavior to detect those links/domains. After all running(dot)it is a valid domain :)

Not a bug, not an unintentional feature, 100% working as expected.


Understood. Let's close this as solved.

I thought that since there is a Insert Hyperlink button, all hyperlinks would need to be inserted through that route. But, never mind.
