When I edit a post with links in it it formulates code around it then leaves it their after im done editing.

I had two screenshots in my post. When I edited it

Turned into

<a href="http://imgur.com/4VHG47I" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://imgur.com/4VHG47I</a>
<a href="http://imgur.com/2mmyZT4" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://imgur.com/2mmyZT4</a>

Then when I hit finish/submit or whatever button was there it left it as the coded version in the post.

Just letting you guys know.

Thanks!

It sort of works like this...

If you create a post, and submit it using a link like

http://www.yourserver.com

then it turns out just fine.

If you go back and edit your post, it will wreak havoc on the link, because to the editor, those are the characters involved with the post. Kind of a buggy issue with the auto-link generator and the editor. those links look like this:

<a href="http://www.yourserver.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">http://www.yourserver.com</a>

If you want your links to be pretty always, you have to edit them if you also edit your post after the initial 'submit'. It's just one of those things... :)

Cheers!

Yep - the forum isn't perfect. But for building community and getting the help you need, it's pretty darn good! :)
