I was hoping this allowed for HTML easily, but it doesn't. For detailed information on a new extension please visit my site:

Wasn't something similar already done? The AutoLink extension if I remember correctly...

Also jkaiser has created another CodePlex project for BlogEngine.NET extensions: http://www.codeplex.com/BlogEngineExtensions.
Good initiative...

Something similar was done....

Just before the extension model was fully implemented I developed something that would replace words with links. IE if I typed my church, my church would be changed to a link. But it was as a code change, not an extension. Then Mads created an extension that would do this same feature on the "Post.Serving" event. I highly prefer my changes to be on the post.saving event, so that is what this does. Plus this is entirely different in that it isn't changing words but tags.

So this is something that has been thrown around for a few months, in various forms.

But to make a note, the extension model is excellent. Really made it easy to make this extension.

I do plan on remaking the extension you mentioned though... on the post.saving event :-) Plus I think with what I learned on this I can make it to where its not case sensitive.
