    Just playing with something and found this:
    When linking a url that contains email address in the path it is incorrectly creates a mailto link.

    For example, linking this
    Code:
    http://test.com/search=k@k.com
    Will result in
    Code:
    mailto:http://test.com/search=k@k.com
    This is only happens when using the Link button in the editor.

    I've changed some ordering here to fix this (to ensure that if it finds http: or https: at the start it's considered a web link), thanks.

    The correct format for a mail URL is as follows: mailto:example@example.com.

    In HTML:
    HTML:
    <a href="mailto:example@example.com">example@example.com</a>
    In BB Code:
    Code:
    [EMAIL]example@example.com[/EMAIL]
    Or to include text/images:
    Code:
    [EMAIL='example@example.com'][IMG]http://example.com/example.jpg[/IMG][/EMAIL]
