Use active link when commenting

Not infrequently, one gets a commentator who leaves an inactive long URL when leaving a comment in a blog. Now if that URL happens to be a long one, one will get an unsightly long unbroken line like in the screen shot below:

long inactive hyperlink in comment

Depending on the situation, this unnecessary problem may be just a problem of aesthetic where the long URL juts beyond the boundary of the main column into the sidebar either obscuring part of the right sidebar of part of the URL becoming hidden, or it may be worst - sidebar pushed to bottom of the page.

There is a simple solution. Make the URL into an active (clickable) link


  1. I usually use writetomyblog . I write the commentary there, and then I copy the code and paste it on the blog i am commenting on.

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. Sorry don't understand your question. Please rephrase it.
