No help to make urls in 2.0?

  1. In wp for iPhone 1.0 there was a nice feature helping you to make a link.
    When you wrote "http: you got a form to fill in and did not have to write html.
    I cannot make this happen in 2.0.

    I hoped for more functions, not less.

  2. Works for me, type in "http:" and the helper pops up. Can you walk me through the steps to reproduce this ?

  3. i can't get it to work either. restarted phone, reinstalled app, no action.

    have you guys peeked at tweetie 2's nifty code toolbar behind the keyboard? that would be such a good place for a dozen html helper buttons that could work on selections and everything!

    Sorry you guys are having trouble. Can you repeat your steps for us? I have no problem bringing up the link helper by typing "http:" into the post editor.

  5. yeah, i got it. it doesn't work if there's any text following it. has to be at the EOF.

  6. Got it. Verified via a quick test in my simulator. I'll file a bug and we'll fix. Sorry!

    Workaround is (for now) to make it the end of the file, but clearly this should be fixed to handle a url anywhere in the post...

  7. good news.

    now just have to get apple to fix the new bug where iphone dialog boxes can't copy-paste.
