Auto Clickable URL’s in PHP

Here’s something that as a PHP programmer I have found useful when writing code for a website which often refers to sources using links… It automatically parses URL‘s into clickable anchors without needing to use any actual tags – you just write the URL as it looks and it will convert it for you. It’s great for people who don’t really know about such things as HTML or BBCode and I have found it useful so if your a programmer feel free to use it if you wish.

function makeClickableLinks($text) {
$text = eregi_replace('(((f|ht){1}tp://)[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&amp;//=]+)', '<a href="\\1">\\1</a>', $text);
$text = eregi_replace('([[:space:]()[{}])(www.[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&amp;//=]+)', '\\1<a href="http://\\2">\\2</a>', $text);
$text = eregi_replace('([_\.0-9a-z-]+@([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,3})', '<a href="mailto:\\1">\\1</a>', $text);
return $text;

Then when you wish to refer to it use this:

$string = "Go to this URL -";
