Fixed XenForo merge multiple links pointing to same URL

Affected version


Well-known member
I am not sure if this is something that cropped up recently as I noticed this just this week. If I create three links pointing to same destination even with different keywords, XenForo editor would merge all the links to create a single link joining all keywords.

For instance, a post content with this content:


Into this:

[URL='']Apple 1
Apple 2
Apple 3[/URL]

This seems to happen even in CODE and PLAIN tags. Hence the screenshot above.

This appears to be Froala's doing - if you disable the RTE, post the message then come back and edit it, the tags remain separated.

Thank you for reporting this issue, it has now been resolved. We are aiming to include any changes that have been made in a future XF release (2.2.4).

Change log:
Don't merge identical sibling URL and EMAIL bbcode tags
There may be a delay before changes are rolled out to the XenForo Community.
