View Full Version : Images now link to self, regardless of [URL] tag?

It used to be that image urls surrounded solely by [ IMG ] tags were not clickable and that if you surrounded the [ IMG ] tags with [ URL= ], that the image was linked to that URL.

Recently, I noticed that an [ IMG ] tag creates an automatic link to the URL of the image, even if a [ URL ] tag is present (in which case that URL is ignored). For an example, look at my signature:



[ url=http://www.dvsmith.net ][ img ]http://www.dvsmith.net/cgi-bin/rand_sig.pl[ /img ][ /url ]


Just wondering what's changed, and if it can change back?

Something became corrupt between 4:00 am and 8:00 am.
I fixed one the file that was causing the board not to load.
I just did a full backup. Maybe that caused the problem when certain tables were locked out?

I'll look into it when I get home from work. I should have been at work 6 minutes ago. :(

Edit: I see. When I click your sign I see the random image but it should be going to your website.
I see that is happening to everyone's sigs. :(
It'll me my evening project.

Trust me, I feel your pain -- yesterday afternoon, I made a complete server backup image and then attempted to upgrade my Cube from 10.3.9 server to 10.4 server, which only brought the data over and wouldn't let me start Apache, POP or IMAP. When I tried to revert, I found that the permissions on the backup were corrupt and the server wouldn't start from the restored data. It took me 7+ hours to get the data recovered, the server running (10.3.9) and the permissions (mostly) fixed. Talk about a Super Sunday. ;)

Still can't figure it out. The same problem exists on my other board on a different server but with the same host. I tried turning off all the extra plugins, still didn't work.

Now my own computer is acting weird. Some fonts are rendering differently than a few days ago. v 10.2.8

I had a mod that resized inline images. This was useful for those who linked huge photos. The down size it interferred with linked signatures. For the meantime I removed it until the coder revises it.
