    Hi, i am having the issue that HREF is not working on my forums, images are ok just not links. I noticed the link button on here pops out a small box, on mine it uses the same link creator you would use when creating a post. Might be the issue? Inspecting element shows its there but you can’t see it.

    Actually, its just happened above too! maybe an update needed??

    Link button outputs hrefs should it not be using the [link] syntax?

    bbPress is tested with wordpress default themes. It maybe a conflict – you need to check plugins and themes

    Plugins

    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.

    Themes

    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, switch to a default theme such as twentytwelve, and see if this fixes.

    ‘it happened on this thread too though in the post at the top there is a link I used which is blanked out even on this website.’

    would tend to suggest it is a problem at your end, have you tried other browsers?

    Searching my problem I found this thread. If I click in the “link” button and write an URL from the popup box/form, when click on submit button the link disappears.

    Is this normal? look at my previous post. It’s a blank post!! where’s the link?¿

    Thank you.

    When you use the ‘link’ here to post a link you need to include the URL and a title for the link.

    <a href="http://www.mygameslounge.com/forums/topic/has-the-price-cut-come-too-late/#post-3880" title="Have a look here for an example"></a>
    The above is the code in your original post…

    You can just paste links directly into the textbox without using the ‘link’ button

    eg. http://www.mygameslounge.com/forums/topic/has-the-price-cut-come-too-late/#post-3880

    Or using the ‘link’ button with a title:

    eg. <a href="http://www.mygameslounge.com/forums/topic/has-the-price-cut-come-too-late/#post-3880" title="Here is the title for that link"></a>

    Argh…. It is broken, kind of, once you add the link using the ‘link’ your cursor will be placed just before the </a> html to give the link a ‘clickable name’

    <a href="http://111" title="111"></a>
    ———————————————————-^

    I will go and investigate this further and see if we can make this a little clearer, easier etc.

    Thank you very much Stephen to consider that.

    I dug around and per my previous comment this is the current expected behaviour and design.

    That said I think we can improve this ‘user experience’ but we can’t do it directly in bbPress at this stage, you see the same experience when using the ‘text’ editor to create new post with WordPress.

    I have created a ticket upstream for WordPress to improve this here, once WordPress has this then bbPress will also have this improved UI/UX :)

    It’s good to see this post as this has been driving me crazy.

    Note that the button works if you type your link text into the post, highlight it and then hit the link button.

    For example, THIS link was created doing it that way.
