Forum interprets address within [IMG] tags as [URL]

When I try to post the following code, I am getting an error;


Preview works fine, and I see the image with the associated URL. However, when I post I get this;


You can clearly see where it's falling over, because of the http :// cache. at the start of the image URL.





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

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.
Please do not PM, IM or Email me with support questions.  You will get better and faster responses in the support boards.  Thank you.<br /><br />"Loki is not evil, although he is certainly not a force for good. Loki is... complicated."
