    Quick fix to the photos-becoming-links problem

    I've noticed that I'm getting the image-turning-into-hyperlink problem quite a bit, and always on the first photo in the post.

    The quick fix to this is hit <edit>, then <go advanced>. It will turn the code back into the picture and when you save, it'll keep.

    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

    Good tip!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: Quick fix to the photos-becoming-links problem

    It's actually a bug with the way that PhotoBucket is parsing their spaces. Since a space is converted to %20% for URL purposes, vB is pinging the Photobucket server, and is not getting the first picture. This can easily be solved by not using folders or pictures that involve spaces in the filename.

    Re: Quick fix to the photos-becoming-links problem

    I noticed, too I tried to post a picture that had this URL in it:

    http://lh5.google.com/image/cavemand...PG?imgmax=1440

    And the text wasn't even linked. I took out everything after the .JPG extension (the ?imgmax=1440 part) and it posted just fine.

    vB doesn't allow any PHP requests or commands after the .JPG. This is to prevent any XSS exploits/hacks.
