Auto Link Bug -- Threads With Prefix

That's quite odd.

Have you got an example of the prefix names and the URL? Does the URL posted here get converted?

Yeah that's expected then.

The URL is fetched in the context of a guest and we only try to get the title if we get a successful response (200). A guest trying to view a forum they have no permission to would give a forbidden response (403) hence at that point it gives up and can't get a title.

In this particular case, the web server is returning a response which we don't consider to be successful.

It's returning a "303 See Other " response.

Strictly speaking, we could consider 3xx responses as successful, or do further checks to ascertain that is the case, but generally a 3xx response isn't "expected" therefore backing out at this point is probably fair.
