bbcode [url=] not working

edited May 2011 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
Question about bbcode and the url tag

It looks to be working on preview but not on the actual post.

First, I went to conf/config.php and added $Configuration['Garden']['InputFormatter'] = 'BBCode'; which allowed for [ b] and all of that normal BBCode stuff.

Problem is [ url=whatever]title[ /url] doesn't work. (I'm putting spaces here so it doesn't link, but they're not in the actual post)

Works in preview, but when I view the post it looks like [ url=]Title[/ url] (again, no spaces). Everything after the = and up to the last ] is linked. It looks like it's autolinking before parsing the BBCode, or doing both.

Any suggestions?

    After posting that, on my site it looks almost exactly like the autolink does in the OP with the href added.

    Is there a way to turn off autolinking between [ url=] and [ /url] so it doesn't happen twice?


    Yup, that's what's happening. Looking at the source it does this

    [url=<a href="][/url]" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">][/url]</a>

    When this is what's in the post

    Feeling a bit stupid here... it was doing this on old posts prior to the format getting set to BBCode. So they were Html in the database. A couple of queries took care of that and now it's working like it should.
