Let's Encrypt - Free SSL wildcard certificate launch delay

Free SSL is here to stay. 

When I read about the Let's Encrypt free SSL for the first time years ago, I thought the big CAs out there will end it before it becomes a hit. But here we are today about to celebrate the launch of free SSL wildcard certificate


The issuing of the wildcard certificates was initially planned to start on January of 2018 but was delayed due to some unexpected stuffs :)

How to make plain URL in string clickable in PHP

Hi :)

This is just a quick PHP function to make all plain URL found in a string clickable. Very useful for projects where you want users to be able to click on any links found within text contents. 



 function make_links_clickable($text) {
		// The Regular Expression filter
		$pattern = "/(http|https|ftp|ftps)\:\/\/[a-zA-Z0-9\-\.]+\.[a-zA-Z]{2,3}(\/\S*)?/";
		$text = preg_replace($pattern, "<a href=\"\\0\" rel=\"nofollow\">\\0</a>", $text);

		return $text;

Good luck
