    Hi there. :)

    Have you installed BBCode lite? you can solve that issue by adding BBCode to your forum

    Michael

    what’s bbcode lite, and how can it be used to fix the problem?

    thanks

    You obviously don’t know what BBCode is at all – so let me explain.

    BBCode is an alternative to HTML for people to use in their posts. For example, if they wanted to have bold text, they would put this in their post:

    Text

    You can download BBCode lite for bbPress here: http://bbpress.org/plugins/topic/bbcode-lite/

    You then need to save the'bbcode-lite.php file in your my-plugins directory. If you do not have one, you will need to create it. Then go to your admin panel, Plugins, and install BBCode Lite.

    Then, in your posts, you will need to enter a URL like this:

    http://www.example.com

    or, with a title

    My Example Site

    Hope this solves your problem. :)

    well, it’s a workaround, but

    my users will need to put each link in <html> tags?

    not so user friendly…

    Why can’t bbpress parse the links as url’s?

    bbPress normally does. Looks to be not working in your installation for some reason. Can you try the standard style.css instead of the RTL css and see if the links become clickable?

    Also, what plugins are you running? And are you integrated with WordPress?

    I agree with Chrishajer. I didn;t know that bbPress does it without a plugin. This as I did not use my forum at all until I had some plugins installed (including bbcode).

    @Chrishajer: I don’t think it would have anything to do with the CSS file. I’m sure there’s a file (I haven’t looked) that has the function that parses the post.

    Regards

    It’s probably not the CSS, but my guess is it’s something related to this specific setup. Maybe the language in use or the RTL CSS or integration with WordPress. bbPress does this by default when you type something that looks like a URL. Here I will just type something and bbPress will just linkify it: http://www.google.com (I typed www google com but with the periods in it)

    I found the culprit…

    It’s the bbpress SEO tools plugin from this site: http://www.finalwebsites.com/forums/forum/bbpress-plugins-and-modifications

    any of you know a seo plugin for bbpress?

    thanks

    What sort of SEO stuff do you want to change on your forum? Many people have added various seo-related tweaks without a big plugin. Post what you’re looking for, in a new topic and people will reply there. Thanks.
