Test - Posting url's

Postby johnnyonthespot » 13 Apr 2011, 22:45

Why am I suddenly finding it impossible to display a url in a post?

Trying here: http://www.google.com

I clicked the "url" button above and then typed "http://www.google.com" between the tags. Nothing shows?

It looks like a bug: whatever you write between the tags "[url]" and "[/url]" will disappear.

Just write: http://www.google.com

Yes; the problem is when posting image links like those from http://postimage.org. The links look like this:

Code: Select all
[url=http://postimage.org/image/2yxdiy72c/][img]http://s1.postimage.org/2yxdiy72c/di_domenico.jpg[/img][/url]


I just looked back at several posts and see that image links like the above that were working just a few days ago are now all invisible. Edmondo: perhaps your fix yesterday to open links in a new window has caused this problem?

The link change has been undone. I will take a further look.

It looks like I have to leave the link function as it is. Not only because the change I tried to make does not work 100% but also because of the W3C standard the forum software is based on.

About W3C: http://www.w3.org/Consortium/
What does W3C say about links: http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG-TECHS/G200.html

If you prefer to open a link in a new tab, select the link by middle-click (wheel).

- left-click to open a link in the same tab
- middle-click (wheel) the link to open a links in a new tab
- right-click the link and select 'open in new tab' to open a link in a new tab

I hope this info helps to open a link in the preferred way.
