Converting URLs and email addresses into links

Converting URLs and email addresses into links

I have Contact Form Solution Pack, Universal Email and CSS Form Builder and discovered I can format output as HTML by referencing the contactus.php template in the WAUE_index.php file:
require_once(dirname(__FILE__) . ("/Templates/contactus.php"));
$contents = ob_get_clean();

I was wondering whether there is an easy way to turn email addresses and URLs entered in the form into clickable links? Where and in which file would the code need to be added?
Any guidance would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thank you

No, there is no simple way to do this, it would require a fair bit of coding to parse the input and determine if it should be a clickable link.
