Here's a post with a URL and a link: <a href="http://www.iconbar.com/">http://www.iconbar.com/</a> in it.

What happens when I edit it...

[Edited by alpha at 16:52, 13/10/2002]

(sorry to edit yours, but I can't be bothered to make my own post :-)

[Edited by andypoole at 20:10, 13/10/2002. because I can]

[Edit]

Hmm, it may work...

[Edit #2]

Well it 'works', but you still seem to end up with more and more <a href's each time you edit the post.

[Edit #3]

And as you can see, editing a post twice (Now three times) introduces the problem ;)

Surely if you can disable URL parsing when inside a hrefs' address, then you can disable the parsing when inside the whole tag?

i.e.

< a href="foo">baa</a>

foo wouldn't (or doesn't seem to) be URL parsed, but baa does get parsed, leading to lots of nested links.

Phlamethrower you're a genius! I was thinking it was the whole thing that was broken, but you're right, it was skipping the links in the a hrefs but then converting the actual link URL in the middle.

Soooo hopefully I've fixed this now:

It's the lack of http:// in the link bit, the www. makes it get linked anyway, so that's another bug.
