This has been around for a while but it's only today that it's driven me bonkers because I'm on catch-up and I keep making typo's.

If a URL is added to a post/comment the first time around ocP picks up the page title and covers it with the URL.

If you then edit the post, the page title is stripped and the URL is submitted as plain text.

Is this a bug or is it something I've done?

TQ

  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.

Seems okay.

My thoughts are that maybe it is either related to:
  1. That word-filter you did to break URLs.
  2. WYSIWYG. Whether URLs parse in WYSIWYG is a bit complex. Really you're meant to link them up properly. That said, it should be a link already at the point of editing within WYSIWYG.

Is it your own post you're editing, or someone else's? Maybe it's somehow related to permissions.

It's not the word filter cos it would replace http:// with Off-site URL:

I will test again but as far as I remember it doesn't matter if it's my own post or someone else's.

Yes, I know I should link them up correctly, and if I do they stay as they should be (which is how I resolve the issue) but it is nice to grab the URL from say a post or DL and it converts it into a user friendly title with the underlying URL. Works great if I don't have to edit it.

It's no big deal, I'll just have to be more disciplined.
