HTML links in comments

Post by ned » Sun Apr 24, 2005 11:07 pm

Hi,

I want to display HTML code/tags in comments. I was getting around fine using the bbcode plugin, but since upgrading to the final 0.8 s9y version, the BB link code stopped working.

I also downloaded and installed the "Transforms HTML for comments" plugin, version 1.3. I moved it to the top of my event list as requested. HTML still does not work. The plugin does not appear to do anything.


Keywords: URL, URLs in comments, hypertext

I'm sorry. Upon further investigation, the bbcode urls are working. There is just something s9y doesn't like about this particular one:

Code: Select all

[url=http://www.campusmagazine.org/articledetail.aspx?id=4ff8775f-04a8-45c7-b61c-e6a8f9f157a5]2005 Campus Outrage Awards[/url]

It displays just as shown. I guess it does not like some of the special characters. This is unfortunate.

I still do not know what the other HTML markup plugin is doing. Thanks.

Hi Ned!

Thanks for noticing, this was indeed a bug in the BBCode plugin. I just committed a patch to our SVN repository.

You can easily patch your serendipity_event_bbcode.php file by replacing

Code: Select all

$pattern_url   = '([@\?:&;0-9a-z#\.\-_\/]+?)';


with

Code: Select all

$pattern_url   = '([@!=~\?:&;0-9a-z#\.\-_\/]+?)';


at about line 77 of the bbcode plugin. Note the addition of the "!=~" characters.

Regards,
Garvin
