    Descriptive Name of Problem: Tapatalk has a bug, and, possibly, a number of bugs, related to manual entries using BBCode. The forum, when one uses manual entry of BBCode, tends to later make errors when one uses BBCode or available form tools to correct the error, such as the url insertion tool, after a manual erasing of the preexisting url.

    Meanderings

    If one will note, the blue lettering is a single link. It should've been a single url link.

    If Admin will enter the 'edit' function of the above url it will be noted that the url seems to be correct, though the url is simply blue lettering at this point.

    What I Did:: About what you'd expect: use manual entries and available forum tools to correct such without the necessity of contacting Admin.
    (Thank you, btw, Admin, in your efforts to correct these bugs.)

    What Should Have Happened: The bugs should have been correctable by entry of BBCode code or available forum tools.

    What Actually Happened: The bug/s are not correctable by the person/s making the corrections.

    Additional Information: I've used up to date software, and the problem affects even secure computers, including passwords, text entries on the forum and elsewhere, as I've just verified yet again.

    P.S. Happy first birthday violet.

    May I ask why you're using Tapatalk in the first place?

    This report provides no details on what "bugs" you are encountering. Please try again with an actual description of the problem. You may include screenshots if needed.

    Corrected the above as well as an error last night of entering 'html' as opposed to 'BBCode'.

    You appear to be using the "rich text editor" aka the "'what you see is what you get' editor".

    [​IMG] <- By using this button, you can switch to BBcode editing mode and make your corrections as you used to do. The button can be found to the far right of the posting box.

    Just as with a different computer I cannot access the image that you've posted. The only thing that I can find on the far right of the posting box is the multiquote and reply buttons. Perhaps you have access to the "Supporter" functions and I do not. While I donated a fair amount to support the forum last year I did so anonymously and will have to wait for the next funding drive.

    I'll also point out that you're a moderator and have been for some time, methinks, but I appreciate the info.

    Okay, so this proves, yet again, that I can be unobservant and inattentive.

    So what's your point?

    grin

    Thank you Artemis and Sil.
