Yeah it doesn't break the link apart b/c it sees it as one long string and doesn't know when to wrap it.
#4
How do you do that thing where a long link can be condensed to one word ??
Often wondered , never asked.

Thanks in anticipation :)

Do you mean tinyurl? Just go to the tinyurl site put it in and it will give you a tinyurl. Generally they are frowned on in forums though because they hide where the link is going.

Not sure will try and find an example

yep - its a long time bug hence why people put the link in the second post. About time it was fixed tbh.

It's not really a bug it's because the first post is not handled by vb so it doesn't support BB code.

So there's no way round it ? It will always be that way ?
[admin]#12
The way around is we would have to allow some html in the first post I think. The problem with allowing html is it can introduce some security problems. That's my understanding of what I've been told :)

Why would it be a security risk in the first post, but no other post!? :?
[admin]#15
The first post isn't handled by VB so we would need to allow html. VB avoids the problems of security with user html by making the VBcode which is a version of BBcode. Both BBcode and VBcode exist to allow users "html-like" functionality in the posts without allowing html.

It would be a nice addition to parse BB/VBcode in the first post, it is rather annoying that it doesn't.

It is actually really easy to do, you can still run it through a VBcode parser. Just becuase that post isn't handled by VB, doesn't mean it can't be parsed.

Have a word with your web guy, they are notorious for saying soemthing is too difficult when in fact what they mean is they can't be arsed :whistling:;-):-D
