I am modifying some open source software to better suit my needs. This line right here
in the software displays the time-stamp, username, and message of a currently chatting user. However, it appears that text is in plaintext and not an HTML element.
What I would like to do is something similar to this
which converts plaintext links to actual hyperlinks. The messages sent through ajax, however, don't appear to be html elements/objects, so I can't just modify the HTML of the message.
Any advice on how I should modify the software to best suit my needs?
Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!
