Need help with clickable hyperlinks

Currently I’m using the following code, which allows a url to be clickable:


However, if I try to add hyperlinks, such as display text it will NOT display the clickable link.

How do I modify the php/html to allow hyperlinks?

Any help would be much appreciated! Thank you.

Probably need to see the code for the function makeClickableLinks()

Here is the section from the func.php:

function makeClickableLinks($text) { 
	$text = eregi_replace('(((f|ht){1}tp://)[[email protected]:%_+.~#?&//=]+)','<a href="\1" target=_blank>\1</a>', $text); 
	$text = eregi_replace('([[:space:]()[{}])(www.[[email protected]:%_+.~#?&//=]+)','\1<a href="http://\2" target=_blank>\2</a>', $text); 
	$text = eregi_replace('([_.0-9a-z-][email protected]([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]+.)+[a-z]{2,3})', '<a href="mailto:\1">\1</a>', $text); 
	return $text;

Thanks for offering to help!
