Apparently Linkify appends the string it has found to the url it links to. So if I want to link longer text like Here you get fresh beer. to http://www.mydrings.com I get something like www.mydrings.com/Here you get fresh beer. what is not only an invalid url but also not what I'm looking for.
I mean I see why this handling can be useful but not how to switch this behavior off. What can I do?
