BTW, did you know there is something wrong with using the link object on your formatting tools?

The problem is that you used both HTML and BBcode at the same time I imagine. Try using JUST BBcode and it should work.

I used your insert link option. It did the rest.
Here is the steps you can take to try and replicate the issue.
Mozila Fire Fox (just upgraded)
- Reply to a post
- type some text
- click on insert a link icon at top of page.
- enter a url </a>
- click submit
- Return page is empty
- click on edit.
-enter the link once more <a href="http://scalehumans.com" target="_blank">sometext
.
- click on submit
- Now both url's disappear because there is no text between the terminator.
-Enter text.
- Now message is scrambled.because the original url is turned back to BCC code with a terminator for html while the new url has html coce inserted inbetween BCC code.
Your parser is doing that when someone neglects to add text between the terminators for the link. It should just default to the displaying the url if you don't place text between the BCC terminator and the begining BCC url tag.

Test
It worked: click the insert URL (write http : // blah, no spaces), then write something (Test) between the ] and [, so it's used as link text.

Below is a insert link attempt with no text inserted before the terminator.

Note that the above attempt should have defaulted to the url as that is the way BCC code should default.
Here is a link with text
SOME TEXT

BCC code should not require text. It should default to the url.
But the real problem is when you go back to edit as I am going to do now.
<a href="scalehumans.com" target="_blank">Now I'm editing and inserting this text. The BCC code is gone and there is html code.</a>
After submitting the parser parses the url and converts the html to text.

If you write http://blah it creates http : // blah as text with same address as destination, no insert url button required.

And multiple edits just get rid of the html altogether.
The issue is if you assume the BCC code will default to the url and you try to edit it after finding it won't.

You're not understanding the issue.
BCC code can be setup to default to the url if you don't place text before the terminator.
You do not have it set up that way.
When someone attempts to edit the post the code is transformed into html by your app.
If you place the text before the html terminator, you end up with both html and BCC code. The html is transformed to text.
That is the issue,
it is with the edit.

This forum gives you some ways:

  1. write http://blah and it creates the link for you, from http up to the first space (as it just did in this line). No BBCode or button needed, but can get confused with spaces or commas, like in http://blah, for example (notice the comma after the h).
  2. write the full BBCode (all the [ , ] and other required parts, everything), by hand, or with help from the insert button ("help", it does not do everything, you have to write something between ] & [ ).
  3. write something, then select with mouse the desired words, then click the "insert a link" button and write the destination (done for this line, but making sure the destination starts with http in the popup, not just bleh).

Using "preview message" is a good tactic. Avoiding the buttons too, if you can type fast and know the BBCodes already.

I'm not being clear enough?
It is with editing the link. I know you have options. There is a bug when you edit the link.
