One user having this issue provided some more details.
Apparently disabling the URL bbc's for signatures will cause this. Could this also be your problem?

Tested.
All links in topics stop working and not just in the signature!

Well if you disable the url bbcode then none of the links will work...

Well, based on the settings signatures should be separate from the posts - So that smells like a bug to me.

Yes.
But this would be signature only!

I also think. Not the "general" bbc

I just tried this setting on my forum (2.1.1) and it works as it should: setting for signatures did not affect url s in Posts ...

Interesting. I just tried and it did break urls for new posts.
My test case, both the signature and the post works if signatures are allowed the URL BBC https://smf.kilpinenonline.net/smf21/index.php?topic=1.msg3#new

This makes sense, the list of bbcodes for signatures is loaded (loadMemberData/loadMemberContext) ahead of posts (prepareDisplayContext) and apparently kept.

I seem to recall SMF 2.0 separating these and treating signatures as a sub-case of "specify which bbcodes to use" which means the bbcode array shouldn't be cached, but decent chunks of the parser were overhauled in 2.1.

In my case it's not just "new" links. It's all of them. Some 4, 5 years old.

I just did a test post on a clean install, so I didn't mean to say only new posts,
just that I only tested with a new post specifically.

Why would it make a difference between old or new? The parser doesn't get told how old a post is, it's just given the text to process bbcode :)

It's just information. It doesn't seem to have reached everyone. I only inform and await your corrections  ;)

I also have problem that insert link works fine during preview but not after posting, however if I go to quick edit and hit save link is formatted correctly and works.

I see you have double posted about this problem here. Let's continue the support at the other topic. :)
Autocorrect is my worst enema.
