I noticed when pasting a wikipedia link containing parenthesis, that the bbcode url tag is not added correctly. The closing tag is before the closing parenthesis, instead of after.

Not sure what you mean? Can you give an example??

Let me investigate whether or not this is a vBulletin issue or something specific to DaniWeb... Hmm. Gimme a lil time to fix this one.

His issue is that the hyperlink created by vBulletin if a user posts a link without using the URL bbcode is broken for wikipedia article links which end with a ).

Okay, so it appears to be a vBulletin issue. Shall I close this thread then ?

Well even if it's a vBulletin issue, there maybe a workaround or a fix. It's all open source. I will investigate.
