Hello! It's my first message. I'm developping my first project in codeigniter.

I found 1 problem.

The filter of url in the form doesn't work with codeigniter 2.0.3:
$this->form_validation->set_rules('url', 'Url', 'valid_url');

but is defined in the form_validation_lang.php

$lang['valid_url'] = "The %s field must contain a valid URL.";

I added this function in
    * Validate URL Address
    * @access    public
    * @param    string
    * @return    bool
    function valid_url($str)
        return (bool) filter_var($str, FILTER_VALIDATE_URL);

and now it work correctly (in PHP 5.3). It's a bug o I have to implement it?
