    Hey guys,

    My site has been live for about a week now and I see results seeping through into google which is great. But then I noticed some of the results are not very user friendly. I dont think anything I have is setup wrong so I assume its an XF bug? i am not sure, I would like peoples input first before I post it as a bug, cheers.

    The link in the example is

    Those are BB Code tags from KK's BBCM add-on which are being rendered as plain text.

    Hmm ok. Is there a way I can fix this Brogan? So my search results are cleaner?
    How does XF hide their BB tags?

    Agreed. Ive messaged KK to see if he has any input. But what im trying to figure out is if this is a XF issue or just an issue with KK's mod?

    Definitely KK's mod.

    ddmmh: can you investigate and see if this applies to Jaxel's BBcode [wiki] ?
    That might help out KingK.

    Can you change the Title to include the issue: have the word BBcode in it ?

    Is there any good reason why someone can't change a title a few minutes after making it ?
    I don't get it.

    I also notice that Follow up posts don't have titles.
    Does that make titles more important than ever ?

    It's currently only able to be done by moderators and administrators.

    Don't Like.
    The obvious reason is Why.
    Especially considering I think people change Thread titles for the better, not worse.
    You should at least be able to change the title for 12 hours.

    There is a problem with the BB tags itself rather then a problem with BBCM. Removing the underscores from the tag FLOAT_LEFT, FLOAT_RIGHT seems to be ok at least in the Xenforo search results. It works fine for me.
