    I just tried to link the following:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._presidential_election,_2000#Controversy_in_Florida

    A page break is mysteriously added. The hypertext link is inaccurate and extra code has been added. Since all URL's now seem to be automatically encoded in vB I was unable to give the link in plain text.

    Using the 'code' tag produces the same results:

    Code:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._presidential_election%2C_2000#Controversy_in_Florida
    Using a 'code' tag around standard html gives the following but at least the link is correct:
    Code:
     <ahref="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._presidential_election%2C_2000#Controversy_in_Florida">[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._presidential_election%2C_2000#Controversy_in_Florida[/url]<a> 
    Definitely something screwy going on.

    I'm no code expert, nor do I play one on TV, but could it have something to do with the empty space after the "U.S."? I thought you couldn't have spaces in web addresses...

    Eric knows about it.

    any really long URL (without a lot of /'s in it) gets that.

    its a bug in vbulletin.
