Html tag rendering


after upgraded my forum from 2.0 to 2.1 some post content are being wrong rendered. Like that discussion:

ps: The same problem occurs into dashboard plugins page (plugins url).

Have a configuration to fix it?

    Hi @vrijvlinder , thanks for reply. See the last comment.

    When someone put a full hyperlink, it is parsed like this:

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

    You can see it into source-code:


    at line 812

    ps: My forum was migrated from phpBB and use Html parser

  • must be a plugin or something I didn't see the double parsing in that example.

    grep is your friend.

    Sorry @x00‌, the comment is in the last page. Follow the right url:

    Ok the link is getting wrapped twice. Somewhere the preg replace is causing this I think. Possibly keywords?
    jquery wrapAll ?
    Something that makes text clickable links ?
    html5 on some browsers.
    what version of php are you running?

    Best disable all the plugins and test until you find possible cause.

    does it only happen with old links (pre-migration) or new links as well.

    could be a remnant of the port, if new links work.

    since bbcode is non-standard you might have to adjust buttonbar to take account for your bbcode tag,
    or use a different bbcode tag.

    probably best not to use any bbcode type of plugins.

    are you using buttonbar as an editor?

    ps: The same problem occurs into dashboard plugins page (plugins url).

    got a sample screenshot with firebug or web-developer tools showing problem.

    you should upgrade to vanilla 2.1.1 - version 2.1 is out of date.

    you could try using

    [url=]This be![/url]

    instead of

    [http link ]

    I may not provide the completed solution you might desire, but I do try to provide honest suggestions to help you solve your issue.

  • The issue is appear to be do with input, it is Buttonbar not workign correctly.

    The ButtonBar that ship with vanilla 2.1 is 1.6 you are using 1.2.4

    grep is your friend.
