Solved Links in posts don't work

Post by Kestrana on December 4th 2011, 1:08 am

Okay, I'm having a really bizarre problem when trying to put links in my posts.

This works:
Code:
[url]http://www.google.com[/url]

These don't work:
Code:
[url=http://www.google.com]Google[/url]
<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

In the first case, it just prints
Code:
[url=http://www.google.com]Google[/url]
in the post.

In the second case, the equals sign (=) is converting to its entity code, =, which then breaks the link.

I have HTML and BBCode enabled both in the ACP and in my profile.

Example post

EDIT:
slg - thanks for the advice, but you're not reading the problem correctly. That code doesn't work - it just prints that entire code out on the page, it doesn't convert it to a clickable link.

If you are trying to post Google which is clickable use this code:

Code:
[url=http://www.google.com]Google[/url]

Have you enabled BBCode/HTML from your profile? Profile => Preferences:
Always allow BBCode : Yes;
Always allow HTML : Yes.
Take sure that when you posting below the text field (exception quick reply) you have Disable HTML in this post or Disable BBCode in this post. Uncheck these options. Wink

Did you use my code or the one you posted?

Glassy - as stated above, HTML and BBCode are BOTH enabled, in my profile AND in the ACP.

slg - your code is identical to the code I posted above that I said DOESN'T work.

Try using this:
Code:
[url="http://www.google.com"]Google[/url]

Also, have you tried using the URL box on the editor?

Don't ask me to explain HOW this works, 'cause I haven't a clue. Makes absolutely zero sense to me, and I work in the web design field.

A link immediately following another link, with no space between them, works just fine. So I just added empty links in front of every link in my post, and it works exactly the way I want it to. For example:
Code:
<a href="" rel="nofollow"><a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

I can't say this is actually solved, per se, but I've got a workaround I can live with.

(For what it's worth, LGforum, your code did the same thing as the one without quotes: just printed the entire code out on the page, EXCEPT when I wrapped it in span tags.)
