Make URLs in Long Text and Single Line Text fields clickable hyperlinks

A small quality of life feature, it would be helpful if URLs turn into clickable hyperlinks.

Hey @Teferi :wave:

That’s a great suggestion! We plan to work on the rich text formatting to enable it in the Long text field type soon. Track the progress here: Suggested field type WYSIWYG/Markdown support (#622) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab.

I’m not sure what long vs single line means, but when you open a record in the full view mode, you also can’t click through on URL links. Sort of defeats the purpose of having a URL link field.

Thanks for pointing this out, we like your suggestion! I created this issue on GitLab to make links clickable in the full view mode: Make links in the URL field type clickable in the full view mode. (#1072) · Issues · Bram Wiepjes / baserow · GitLab. You can use it to track the progress :slightly_smiling_face:

Hi Olga, is there already sight on the rich text in the long text? It’s 1,5 year ago, is it still the plan?

Hey @Mangaire1, yes, it’s currently high on our list, so someone from the dev team should pick up this task soon.

In the recent survey we conducted, we found that this was also one of the most popular requests. I’ll make sure to let the team know that it’s a very awaited feature. :raised_hands:
