Yeah someone asked about this a couple years ago I think. I believe Nick said he decided not to create a URL forum code because of fears that it could be exploited or abused by users.

Although as an administrator you can insert URLs (and pictures, and anything else you want) into your posts.

Nick talks about it here:

At present, it simply does a "replace all" of "[b]" to "<b>" and so on.
Instead of replace all of [b] to <b>, you could do replace all of [a]...[/a] to <a href="...">...</a>. Unless, of course, Nick meant that he does only one linear scan of the message, instead of uses multiple regular expressions on it.

It is done with a linear scan. It is hard to get regexps right, because of the nesting problem.

You could use non-greedy regexes, but I agree that the linear scan is certainly faster.

To get the link working, you'd have to keep track of where you found the open-link, then as soon as you find a close-link you'll have to do some fancy replacing. It'd be nice to have but I agree the copy/pasting isn't too bad.

I dont mind the copy and pasting, but if you really wanted to you could probably just grab phpBB's code since I believe they allow you to do it.
