As Designed "Unlinking URL" doesn't unlink at all.

    Go to this thread:

    Type (manually) a link, post the message. You'll see it becomes a link.

    Now edit your post and select the link and click "Unlink", then "Save Changes".
    What happens? It remains a link :(

    Note: Google Chrome 12.0.742.30
    Also tested on FireFox 4.0.1 and problem occurs.

    Must be a TinyMCE thing I guess.

    It works if you make some specific text a URL and then unlink it, e.g. Yoursite.com

    I presume it's not that easy to stop a valid URL from being parsed correctly, as is the case with a plain URL.

    I had seen it already, I just felt like saying "Told ya ;)" :D

    This is currently the designed behavior (as we auto parse things that look like URLs).

    I'm sorry Mike, but wouldn't this be better tagged as [Future Fix]? I must say this title sounds ridiculous.

    What's ridiculous about it?
    As Mike said, it's designed behaviour so the thread title prefix [As Designed] reflects that.

    The fact that a function doesn't do what it's supposed to do I do not find ridiculous, the tag is, but I do find [Future Fix] better for this bug.

    But it's not a bug...Mike just said it's designed behavior (anything that looks like a URL gets parsed as such). I don't get what's "ridiculous" about it. :confused:

    You might find it better, but it doesn't change that it is fully working as intended so needs no fixing.

    I just want some links not to be linked... Well, hope this will get fixed sometime :)

    Use the plain tags.
