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:

[warning!](https://warning.example.com)

and have it display as expected:

warning!

However it currently displays as:

[warning!](https://warning.example.com)

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.

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