URL ending with a closing parenthesis tagged incorrectly:


This URL is not tagged by me, the board adds a URL-tag incorrectly:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ocelot_(vehicle)

Not something *I* can fix. It's common on most BBS programs.
I think it is organic to PHP.

Hmma ya, it worked.


Basically, instead of counting on dropping the URL and it automatically formatting right, when you have a paren or other unusual punctuation use the Insert Link button on your initial posting, it will properly format your whole URL and not lose the right paren.

It's not a bug, it's a feature...
 
Searching it seems a common problem, specifically with wiki links.

It's not a bug, but a feature to (lazily) handle the perhaps more common case of a link inside parenthesis, e.g. (https://Sweden.se/).
