    Does it block all bbc.com links or just that one?

    An odd thing indeed.... I turned it back on (re-activated this plug-in) and all is working now.

    So I have no idea why it wouldn't allow it the 1st time. :confused:

    Whoa. That is weird.

    Was the error definitely about a short URL or was it some other error? I looked through the list of services and one was called bc.com or something so I thought it was that but if it just started working again I have no idea.

    Found out the error (I believe)

    http://xenforo.com/community/threads/xfr-merge-double-user-post.6264/

    This has the following option "Use Timestamp Spacer" (and also "Timestamp Spacer") which adds a self generated internal hover link of the time stamp (within the post). And I assume some how that is being blocked.

    Honestly, generating that time-stamp actually uses more resources anyways (in my opinion)... So I simply turned off that option as the modification works just fine without it (time stamp is eye candy and I can live without it).

    So I just turned off "Use Timestamp Space" and also switched the 2nd "Timestamp Space" option to "Empty String".

    So fix not needed and the above in my opinion is a good enough solution for me. :)

    Nope, that wasn't it either.

    I tried posting this link

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0133017605?tag=socialuncens-20&creativeASIN=0133017605

    And got the same error about short urls. It seems to be random. Not sure what exactly causes it.

    There is something in this paragraph that is causing the system to kick out the "no short urls" error:

    the "Read Me" file is always good thing to read...otherwise it be named "I'm important and it's best to read me, but if you want to just ignore me, that's fine too.txt" file. haha.. :p :ROFLMAO:

    I couldn't post this when using this addon:

    Where is shortened url their?

    There doesn't seem to be one.

    It might be worth clearing the default list and just adding your own as and when you need to.

    I'm just using the default set.
    I don't know what's the problem.
    Looks like this addon doesn't allow many url on a post? :rolleyes:

    Chris D XenForo Developer Staff Member

    I don't know what the problem is either.

    My suggestion was to remove the default set, and add in only the short URLs that are a problem.

    e.g. bit.ly, fb.me, tinyurl.com etc.
