A contributor is trying to insert a picture into a post using Postimage.

He copies the hotlink for forums which starts [url=  etc, but it appears on the forum as %5Burl= And the closing square bracket comes up as %5D.

He's using an iPad, is Apple the cause of all his problems?

That is the wrong BBCode for an image, for an image it should be;

[IMG] http://example.com/smiley.gif%5b" rel="nofollow - http://example.com/smiley.gif[ /IMG]

You can also use the Insert Image Insert Imageoption from the Editor which will show you the image in the post editor before you submit the post.

Well this is using the format supplied by Postimage. As you can see it does insert a picture. But it does contain the normal BB Code for an image. It seems to have the URL code round it.

But have you any idea what is changing that square bracket to %5B or %5D
