I just ran into the same problem again, along with the added irritation that now ATS seems to remove/edit tinyurls.
I wanted to post a page where the link has been dead for some 2 years, apparently. I was able to access it off the wayback machine, but when I did [ u
r l = that link ] text [ u r l ], it broke it up. Then I tried posting a tinyurl link, but ATS seems to automatically remove the tinyurl part of the
I seem to remember that ATS has it's own url shortener, and that would be a solution for now, but seriously, it'd be nice if this issue (along with
the other issue of links being broken up by stuff like ( and ) )was fixed.
In this case, I realise that the problem occurred because the wayback machine link has two "http" bits in the link, and ATS automatically attempts to
format those as two separate links.
I know it may cause some major issues (although really, it shouldn't), but can't it be made so that if someone posts a link in ATS, the whole block of
text would be considered a link until the next "space" was encountered?
So(this)whole*thing??would=be/considered+a+link, if I had put an http : // www . at the start.
