    Please look at my test message (http://xenforo.com/community/threads/test.70294/) try editing "Generic Community Rules" such that it is a link. You will see how the text editor just messes up. It seems the text editor has all sorts of seizures when it comes down to nested lists. This is one of the issues I have run into with the text editor. Even if I manually edit using the BB editor, the editor still messes up the posts.

    I have more examples where it messes up with other tags as-well; such as the FONT tag.

    Chrome. Did you edit the links into your post AFTER making the post ? That is the condition for repeating this
    also your replicated post in my test thread is missing the FONT tag. This is the message

    [FONT=Helvetica][SIZE=5][COLOR=rgb(37, 44, 47)][U]Contents:[/U][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
    [*][COLOR=#252c2f]Naming Policy[/COLOR]

    One issue I noticed:

    1) Quoted the post as instructed in post #1
    2) Highlighted "Generic Community Rules"
    3) Made into hyperlink

    The text does not turn blue to indicate a link, yet the hyperlink is created.

    Mac OSX using Firefox.

    Same behavior here, Firefox 27.0.1
    Appart from that everything went fine.

    1. Quoted the post (then removed the QUOTE tags)
    2. Highlighted "Generic Community Rules"
    3. Made into a hyperlink.
    The text did turn blue to indicate a hyperlink. I also got a blank line immediately below.


    On examining the BBCode, this is what it has done:

    [*][COLOR=#252c2f][URL='http://xenforo.com/']Generic Community Rules[/URL][/COLOR]
    [URL='http://xenforo.com/'] [/URL]
    It has added two lots of URL tags, the second around a space that didn't exist (I checked the code).
    I have tested this 3 times now with the same result.

    Windows 7, Chrome 33

    We do defer to the browser to add the link and I'm not sure we can (reasonably) do much to change that, but I'm not sure why Chrome is adding that.

    As for the link color not changing, that will be because of the colors that are hardcoded in the post. Firefox is likely adding the link outside the color. (This is another one of those cases of ambiguity.)

    Chrome is doing all sorts of weird things with the text editor. I have had it separate each item in a list into its own list
    so it would take this:
    [*]item 1
    [*]item 2
    And convert it into this
    [*]item 1
    [*]item 2
    It is making edits of large posts with nested lists quite tedious :c

    This looks like a browser issue in Chrome (or possibly dating back to Webkit). It actually only has the text selected, but it appears to get confused when it inserts the link and adds another entry outside the <li> (which isn't actually selected). I don't really see a decent way of detecting this and any change to something like this would require fairly significant changes (basically not using the browser).

    Is the rich text editor disabled in Firefox for Android, by chance? Just curious if there are browsers which we intentionally do not run the editor - or if thats something that Redactor is doing.

    There are a bunch of cases where the editor is explicitly disabled by XF.
