Blank post that really isn't blank

Post by Jonas Thomas » Mon Dec 29, 2008 6:14 pm

Ok... I'm not quite sure how to do this...
I created a post where text would show up in the edit but not in the view/pre-view.
I think it had something to do with the URL tag...
The moderator thought I should post here..
It's the first post in the thread...

I'm assuming a moderator can look at the problem post..Right??

Hi that is right there is a bug in the parsing mechanism of the forum, where an URL with some characters might make it appear that your whole post is blank. Wonder how it happens but my knowledge of PHP is simply non-existent, so I can't solve it. The workaround is not using the URL tag and writing it as plain text instead.
