When creating a link I often times use this syntax "Linky":url .
This works when it is the first Link in the comment, but after adding a second link, I only see "Linky as the text.

The workaround is using [linky]( urly ).

This might be a bug, but could be a deprecated function as far as I can tell.

    Hi Kenneth,

    Can you send an example url?

    Hello Brandi,

    Here is a link to the page:

    It's the bottom comment for the example. Both words "demo" should be a link.

    Kind regards,

    Kenneth -

    We use Markdown for text editing. The format you have listed there isn't support by Markdown, as far as I can tell from http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/. If you do An [example](http://url.com/ "Title") you'll get the desired result. We will automatically render http links on their own, but I'm not really sure why you're getting the behavior you are now.

    Hope this helps.
