Hello,

Ive just noticed this when i was trying to find an older thread.

The problem is simple and hopefully as simple to fix.


I paste the URL, e.g.:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=444379

and it looks exactly like that in the text editing box.


However, once the text is submitted, the forum software turns it into:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=444379

which when used will lead to a 'thread does not exist' message since the added 'amp;' throws the URL off balance.


I have checked and this is the case for all URLs ive posted there.

Will it be possible to fix this or should i add a note to each of the affected uploads to point out the issue?


Thanks in advance.

Edit: I may have misunderstood the question.

However, you can use the url tags, like this:

http://www.kvraudio.com/forum/viewtopic ... 1&t=444379

Does that help? I don't know if the tags are available in the patch descriptions.

Its plaintext only, i.e. no HTML/BB/etc.

This needs to be fixed on the software level since it is the software itself that adds the superfluous 'amp;' after submission. (Thereby breaking the URL.)

But thanks anyway.
