    Hello Reader's! If you are looking for code that make your plain MyStringPlainText urls and emails into anchor format then you can use the code function as below:-

    <?
    function SetTheAnchor($MyStringPlainText)
    {
    
            $MyStringPlainText = html_entity_decode($MyStringPlainText);
            $MyStringPlainText = " ".$MyStringPlainText;
            $MyStringPlainText = eregi_replace('(((f|ht){1}tp://)[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&//=]+)',
                    '<a href="\\1" target=_blank>\\1</a>', $MyStringPlainText);
            $MyStringPlainText = eregi_replace('(((f|ht){1}tps://)[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&//=]+)',
                    '<a href="\\1" target=_blank>\\1</a>', $MyStringPlainText);
            $MyStringPlainText = eregi_replace('([[:space:]()[{}])(www.[-a-zA-Z0-9@:%_\+.~#?&//=]+)',
            '\\1<a href="http://\\2" target=_blank>\\2</a>', $MyStringPlainText);
            $MyStringPlainText = eregi_replace('([_\.0-9a-z-]+@([0-9a-z][0-9a-z-]+\.)+[a-z]{2,3})',
            '<a href="mailto:\\1" target=_blank>\\1</a>', $MyStringPlainText);
            return $MyStringPlainText;
    }
    
    
    echo SetTheAnchor("Pass this link to my convert anchor string : http://www.findnerd.com  Or you can mail me here admin@abc.com");
    ?>
    

    The PHP code above will use the string that you pass in SetTheAnchor() function and if any email of url is found in it, it will set the anchor on them and make it clickable. Similarly if any email is found it will link your outlook on clicking it.
