Use AutoLinks for adding a single, quick link with no non-link text in your message.
For example, entering
http://google.com Google is a great search engine.
will automatically create a link like so:
The first 'word' (in this case, http://google.com) becomes the link address and all subsequent words (Google is a great search engine.) become the link text.
The domain name (google.com) becomes the
title attribute, which appears as a tooltip in most browsers.
Note: AutoLinks must begin with the characters http or www. to work properly.
AutoLinks will not work if http or www. are not the first four characters of your message.
