This user on Stack Overflow has Google Plus link under their user profile's Website attribute. URL is displayed only as a text and not actual link to their Google Plus Profile. I pasted the same URL on a browser address bar and it seems to be a valid URL. When I viewed the page source, I found the URL is simply displayed within
I even tried pasting the above URL on my profile and it did display the link correctly. When I pasted the text
http:// was automatically prefixed to make it a valid URL on my profile. This tells me it is not necessary to have
http:// before the URL text.
Why isn't this URL not recognized as a valid one for this user and displayed as such on the user profile?
