Url rewriting

I discovered Sanitize gem and it’s pretty good but one thing I can see
is that if someone puts a URL in the body of text without markup, that
would become a link that would drive the person who clicks the link
off-site which I don’t really want.

So if I have say…

@test = “This is a really cool website - http://www.example.com

I would want it to be changed to…

@test = “This is a really cool website - http://www.example.com”

Is there some gem or plugin? Do I have to write some complicated gsub
routine?

Probably not a great idea. Don’t force links to open in a new window –
it’s extremely annoying.

That said, you can do at least some of this with the element.

When will you stop appending this silly footer to your e-mail?
