Sorry for the long delay, I'm working on finishing this extension and creating a release for the phpBB 3.2.

Sorry, I don't think this will be possible. It can be done for known extensions, like the phpBB pages extension, where a link like

Code: Select all

app.php/page/my-page
can be looked up in the database ("is there a page with the route 'my-page'?") and replaced with the page title from there.
But I don't know how to properly replace anything following a

Code: Select all

app.php/
with a fitting text.

A quick test shows promising results. I have always disliked the way links on the Internet in general look like. They are an ugly mess of characters. At least now our site has internal links that are kinder to the eye. Martin, thank you! :)

By the way, is this EXT browser-dependent? With Chrome, I can see this post like I should, but with Maxthon, it looks like it did before this EXT? Maybe I am missing something here... :)

The new release 1.1.1 is out. This release is for the phpBB 3.2 version, and I will submit this version to the phpBB extension database, so now this is a Release Candidate.

New in this version:
  • phpBB 3.2 support
  • support replacing links with different protocol scheme (thanks @VOOM108)
Fixed in this version:
  • handling of UTF-8 characters (thanks @mike2003 and @3Di)
  • do not replace custom link text (thanks @VOOM108)

The extension is server-side only (PHP code), there is no JavaScript or other code involved running in the browser, so it's not browser-dependent. For me, also in Chrome the post shows the default link text, not the replaced text.

Could you please have a look at this issue and check your board settings regarding "Cookie Secure"? Maybe this solves the problem.

Thanks for the link. Our cookies are set to secure, but the local URLs are not replaced throughout. Some of them are. And I am talking about new posts, not the ones posted before installing this EXT. I am lost. :D

Thanks! :) Our technical admin added that. How do you all see the local url in this post?

https://www.potku.net/forum/viewtopic.p ... 34#p917634

With Maxthon, I see it as the ugly string of characters as it has always been. With Chrome, I see it as a beautiful link as per this EXT, and Firefox does the same. I wonder what is wrong with my default browser... Since it isn't the world's most popular browser, it doesn't really matter. What matters is what everyone else sees. :)

Hmm, OK, thanks. :) Well, maybe Martin will have an idea as to why that is.
