URL validation for "Web Site" on user profile


(Dean Taylor) #1

Some validation would be nice on the “Web Site” field on user profiles.

Currently, users are able to enter invalid URL’s like this one

http://https://www.facebook.com/FacebookUK

Side-note - I feel like “Web Site” should really be “Website”:

  • the AP Stylebook changed 5/6 years ago
  • Google search results for “website” - 5,450,000,000
  • Google search results for “web site” - 597,000,000

User website preference is invalid with underscore

How brave are you feeling :smile: this should be a rather simple PR :wink:

@techapj this would be a good check for us to add.

Would love to, but time is a killer for me right now.

When I can I will.

For now I’ll keep setting 'em up for you guys to shoot at :gun:
