    Universal Resource Identifier, a web address in this case.

    A URL is a type of URI, but yeah, I suspect the *'s are causing the problem, not the length.

    :p
     
  8. You could even use TinyURL if you wanted. :)

    This has always been a limitation of vbulletin, it is to prevent side scrolling.
    If it is constantly an issue I will increase the wordwrap setting, msn is not the best host for image hosting anyway

    Well it's free and allows hotlinking. I don't see how the side-scrolling issue should affect things in img tags though :confused:

    Suppose so, would of thought it viable to break the contents of img tags into a separate variable though.

    So would I, I am posting these bits to the bug tracker tho, so we will see how things go.

    There suggestion was to increase the size of things before it wraps...
    In all honesty tho, does anyone type rediculously long text with it not being a URL?

    unless its like !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! which we would remove, warn and slap.
    So might increase it to 100 or so? :)

    It would need to be quite long for these (admittedly, ridiculous) URL's though..

    Hmmm, and apparently it squeezes your name/avatar space.
