    We are currently looking at bringing the features of the Wrangler plugin into the core product to solve the use cases of:

    1. Moving a message or thread to another channel
    2. Attaching a message to an existing thread

    You can follow progress here as we start design soon: https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-35848

    That plugin goes part-way to implementing what is being requested here, but for one crucial element:

    > This plugin creates regular expression (regexp) patterns that are
    > reformatted into a Markdown link before the message is saved into
    > the database.

    There are real issues with this happening before being saved, rather than happening before rendering, as it means it is a lossy conversion that cannot be updated to fix e.g. bad configuration or URL changes.

    It also means that anyone editing a post will not see what they typed, but some modified version, breaking the principal of least surprise and potentially causing confusion and errors.

    It's a potential interim solution, but it doesn't go far enough. Perhaps Mattermost needs an extra hook to allow a pre-render transformation?

    btw Having thought more about it, I've realised that this absolutely has to be applied at point-of-render, not point-of-save, otherwise if URLs change for any reason all existing links will be broken. Applying at point-of-render would mean that any URL changes would apply to all existing posts - not just new ones.

    I am raising this as it happened very recently for us, where we switched from http:// to https://.

    > We ended up getting this feature in our instance through one of our chat bots. Pretty simple actually.

    It seems that part of the problem you are trying to solve would be resolved if channels remembered your scroll position when you moved between them.

    This does seem somewhat like feature creep, and orthogonal to the aim of the project. I am worried that this ticket is taking time and resources away from more important items.

    If I could add a negative vote for it, I would.
