Please describe your problem. The "URL" bbcode is not working at all. By "not working", I mean that when I add the url shorcodes, they show up exactly as typed -- as below:

Code: Select all

This should be a URL: [url=https://www.google.com/]Google[/url]
This should also be a URL: [url]https://www.google.com[/url]

After searching here, I completely removed the "/vendor" directory, and untarred a brand shiny new copy. This made no difference.

Yes, I plan to upgrade to the latest phpBB version soon, but I'd rather fix this first...that is, unless this is known to be resolved in the latest version.

Thanks.
Jack

Check out the admin panel > General > Post settings > Allowed schemes in links

If it's empty it means something's wrong.
I wrote the library that handles markup in phpBB 3.2+.

Already did -- and yes, it's empty. What belongs there? (I guess I'll Google that!)

Thanks.

http,https,ftp by default, http,https is fine too.

Also, it means your board was not upgraded properly so other issues may occur.

I found it via web search, and it's exactly what you suggested. It worked as expected. I can probably write a database query to update the ones that need to be re-parsed.

And yes, I am certain there were issues with the upgrade. The database upgrade kept failing, and took me quite a while to troubleshoot and resolve the issues. But so far, this is the ONLY one that has persisted, that anybody has noticed.

Thanks again!

Jack
