Minor mod to Automatic Actions based on Words Found in Posts

What would you like done?

Currently the Automatic Actions based on Words Found in Posts feature can accept a replacement string of either simple text or a url, but not a combination of text and url. I would like to use a markdown link as the replacement string:


and have it display as expected:


However it currently displays as:


See screenshots. Maybe it’s not getting baked or something.

If at all possible, I would like the change made in the baseline code so I don’t need a plugin. The change seems generally useful to others. If I need to use a plugin until the next release, or something like that, that’s ok.

When do you need it done?

Next couple weeks?

What is your budget, in $ USD that you can offer for this task?

Open to suggestions. Please PM me with your approach and estimate.


Have you looked at Linkify words in post by chance?


Ooh, how did I miss that? I’ll see if that works for me.
