URL hyperlink in profilefield gives an error

While entering the data for "blog", I assume it's a ProfileTemplateField? with Hyperlink ... I get this error "Warning: the URL is invalid!" for " http://www.edito.qc.ca" (no quotes), but no error for " http://www.edito.qc.ca/". I imagine the regexp needs to be changed....

Well, the regex IS correct. A domain without a trailing slash isn't a valid URL. In fact, web servers will send an http redirect from  http://www.edito.qc.ca to  http://www.edito.qc.ca/ to correct the user's mistake (not doing so and just displaying the page would break all relative hyperlinks). It worked so well that most people don't know that  http://www.edito.qc.ca isn't actually valid.

Wether wifidog should be anal about it, or should give the user a hint is another question.
