Converting text url into link

Last Modified: 2012-05-12

I have a text filed in my database that contain text and URLs. I want the URLs to be real links when that text is printed on page.

See the image attached to see it printed on page currently.

I want to make possible that those URLs be automatically clickable instead of text only.

Is this possible ?
