Bug when posting "visitor message"


Just found this little bug:

I wanted to post a URL in a visitor message on another user's profile page. With the full URL (http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/mid...st/8045978.stm), the URL was automatically surrounded with BBCODE [url]...[/url] tags on clicking Post message (though the tags are only visible if you Go advanced). An error message was then returned:
Code:
BB code url is not allowed.
I was able to post, though, when I stripped the http:// from the front of the URL. Is it possible to tweak the forum code so that BBCODE is not added where BBCODE is not allowed? Or, if the forum code is available for download from somewhere, I could endeavour to write a patch.

Yours,
Rob.

Thanks for the bug report. This should be fixed.
