"a href" link in author comment fails with "font" & "=" urls

Postby smbhax » February 1st, 2010, 10:02 am

Ran into a problem posting a link in my author comment on this comic: I couldn't make the url "http://www.1001fonts.com/font_details.html?font_id=269" into a functional link with the usual "a href" HTML.

Did some testing and it seems that a link will not form with HTML in a comic's author comment if the URL you're trying to link to has "font" followed by "=" in it. For instance, these form clickable links in the author's comment
Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/font">test</a>
<a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/=">test</a>

whereas these do not
Code: Select all
<a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/font=">test</a>
<a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/fontx=">test</a>
<a href="http://www.smackjeeves.com/font_x=">test</a>

--instead of forming a clickable link in the author's comment, the naked "<a href..." html is shown, except for the "</a>," which is not visible.

By the way if you guys would like to fix this little problem by enabling simple BBCode in author comments like most of the other big webcomic sites do, that would be fantastic. :D

That is a little weird, I'll have to look into it.
