    Broken link parser?


    Hello,

    on posting, the text is parsed for www links and replaced by clickable http tags. But if there is a closing parenthesis at the end, it is cut off.

    For example
    Code:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket_(disambiguation)
    is cut off to
    Code:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bracket_(disambiguation
    corrupting the link.
    Debian GNU/Linux -- You know you want it.

    I've ran into the same thing once in a while. So now I never just paste the link in. I use the button for "Insert Link"... I've not had it cut anything off since I started doing that.
