Enable Urls in Assignment Properties Description field–SharePoint Learning Kit 1.8

SLK 1.8 automatically turns urls in the assignment properties description field into hyperlinks. So if you create this assignment:

slkUrlInstructor

The when it is displayed to the learner, the url www.salamandersoft.co.uk will be turned into a link, giving

slkUrlLearner

This is on by default and automatic, so no configuration is required.

It’s a fairly simple implementation using a regular expression to find the urls, so it won’t work in all cases. The urls which are supported start with:

  • http://
  • https://
  • file://
  • ftp://
  • www.
  • ftp.
  • mix.office.
  • sway.

and the rest of the url is validated as well.
