phpBB just shortens the display to prevent it wrapping to a second line. The full address is still there if you click on the link.
If you want to firce display of the full link, just place ... tags around the address.

e.g. without
http://www.yourboardaddress.com/communi ... m.php?f=46

and with
http://www.yourboardaddress.com/communi ... m.php?f=46


(Note, I didn't use phpbb.com, as addresses on the same server as the board are handled specially)

I see what he's saying.. when you have large .rar files.. usually they are separated into smaller segments.
Thus there will be a post with 10 links for different parts.. instead of right clicking and find the url.. and pasting, it's so much easier to just copy all 10 links and paste them to a download manager to start the downloads..

I don't know the solution to changing this.. but I'm sure other know..

The problem is to educate the users. They can quote the post and copy all links and paste them.

Or, posters can check Do not automatically parse URLs when they post.

I am not sure, but ek3ekytop, are the links ok? Can they be clicked and then they show the correct destination?
I have a similar issue, but my links are destroyed!
The part after ... (including ...) is not a link anymore.
What can be causing that?

It then looks like this:
http://www.yourboardaddress.com/communi...m.php?f=46


Check the third post here:

There it happens!
