Forum interprets address within [IMG] tags as [URL]
« on: January 01, 2011, 05:25:48 PM »
When I try to post the following code, I am getting an error;

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/81.19.208.31:19567/][img]http://cache.www.gametracker.com/server_info/81.19.208.31:19567/b_560x95.png[/img][/url]
Preview works fine, and I see the image with the associated URL. However, when I post I get this;

Code: [Select]
[url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/81.19.208.31:19567/][img]http://cache.[url=http://www.gametracker.com/server_info/81.19.208.31:19567/b_560x95.png]www.gametracker.com/server_info/81.19.208.31:19567/b_560x95.png[/url][/img][/url]
You can clearly see where it's falling over, because of the http :// cache. at the start of the image URL.

Thanks

If that's your forum, you won't get any help, here, until the SMF copyright's restored.

I don't think you'll find that's an SMF forum.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

So...

We're being asked to provide support for other forum software, now?

How odd...

???
Didn't I just go over this with someone

mostly, it's a problem with that website not using a standard url address format.

The problem is that smf interprets www as the START of a web address, so it is attempting to make the URL that is SEES into a link because that cache.www screws it up.


I honestly don't call this an actual SMF "bug" and I would prefer telling the stupid people who used that format of url to use a proper format.
