    Hey the new feaure where certain keywords are highlighted is excellent however i noticed, it is screwing up another feature which is the ability to post a http link in a post.

    Basically if a keywork is in some of the links the link might not work, i tried to link to boycott-riaa tonight and it came up as what looked like html code for the anchor tag! I'm sure some other posters noticed as i have seen it about 20 times in the last few days!_X_X_X_X_X_[small]Come Say Hi on IRC!!! Server: irc.emule-project.net channel: #ad_buddies

    Thanks. I've tried to avoid such situations in the code, but once you see something like that, do post the URL. Cheers.

    Yep saw another one and this time i have the url and a complete copy of the post that it happened on.

    URL: http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/1/40634#193835

    Post: I found a version of TMPGEnc that has only a trial version however, when the trial version is up ONLY the MPEG-2 conversion part is disabled, everything else is still available. I liked this version much better than the previous one I had where everything was disabled after 14 days. I don't remember where to get it though, go to Yahoo and do a search, Try going here: TMPGEnc.net/e_download.html" class=korostus target="_blank">http://www.TMPGEnc.net/e_download.html

    strange aint it! :S

    Sh*t... I'll look into this, although fixing such issue is hellish -- currently the rules are something like this: If the matched word begins with special character (., -()/) and/or ends with one, match it. But in case of www.tmpgenc.net URL, this rule holds true as well, but then again it also is an URL itself.. Ideas?-)

    I reckon from looking that it is caused by the fact that TMPGEnc is in the <a> tag and it is highlighted accidently, does kinda make sense really.

    hmm, maybe getting the forum code to ignore anything in html tags might work?? or am i in a dream world?
