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

Go to this thread:
http://xenforo.com/community/threads/yoursite-com.15700/

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.

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.
