Some URLs like from Brinkster's website are something like:

www23.brinkster.com/freeaccount/whatever.txt

The numbers vary, but I think they are no more then 2 digits long (like 23, 24 etc). It would be nice to have support for this, as you cant click it .. And lazy people like me have to copy and paste it into a web browser smile

If you put http:// as a prefix it will work. "www23" is not a standard subdomain which is why mIRC doesn't detect it.

And if you want www23 to work, then thats what ON HOTLINK is for.

I'd sooner see people quote a full URL rather than them requiring people to script in support for their laziness.

Thanks for your first post Watchdog, I can understand why it doesn't work.
