Is there a way to add protocols to linking for MediaWiki?

For example:

  • Works: [ Google]
  • Doesn't work: [ Some FTP place]
  • Doesn't work: [conisio://something?something=awesome Something Awesome]

In the above example, I want to add ftp and conisio protocols

Add to $wgUrlProtocols 1.6 and above

For older versions, need to add a line in the function replaceExternalLinks in ./includes/Parser.php
