I'd like to be able to use the [ url ] bbcode tag and allow other bbcodes inside it. right now the tags in the url are not being processed.

I tired making a new bburl tag that allowed bbcodes inside but the urls are still being auto converted & breaking my bburl

does anyone have a suggestion?

FYI - if you are wondering why, I just uploaded this you code addon. and I would like people to be able to post urls like this

Code:
[url="http://xenforo.com/community/members/[you]url[/you].[you]id[/you]/"]profile for [you]name[/you][/url]
[url="http://xenforo.com/community/index.php?conversations/add&to=[you]url[/you]"]Start PC with [you]name[/you][/url]
[url="http://xenforo.com/community/index.php?search/member&user_id=[you]id[/you]"]Content for [you]name[/you][/url]
[url="http://www.infobyip.com/ip-[you]ip[/you].html"]IP search for [you]name[/you][/url]

I think creating a new URL bbcode as you started to do will be a lot easier. I've released a Picasa bbcode that avoids the auto url linking. There are two patches. Forget the second one, the first one is more efficient and easier to use. I can release a addon to correct url autolinking for some bbcodes (can be configurate via admin panel) OR automatically with all customised bbcodes created with the BB Code Manager (but takes 1 request in DB per page ; that's why I prefere the first solution). The auto url linking will be then disabled BUT only in content not in options:

Code:
[new]http://www.website.ert[/new] => WORK
[new=http://www.website.ert]CONTENT[/new] => DOESN'T WORK (well i can make it work for 1 url and no other option)
If you want that addon, please wait a few days. I want to make it work in conversation too.
