Important Kunena refuse relative internal URL when inserting a link into post message

In fact, I had reported this as a bug 3 years ago (oh, THREE years!) on tis forum:


but you did not admit that as a bug of Kunena.

Kunena team told me to use relative URLs starting with a slash when inserting a link in post message. I think that is wrong, but I can not convince you, until today, I found solid proof from Joomla team:

Please read this discusson first:


From this discussion, you can see that Joomla core DOES NOT allow relative internal URLs starting with a slash!

In that discussion, @mbabker said clearly:

No, it can't.

That is to say, if I followed your instructions to add a starting slash before index.php?option= part of the relative dynamic internal URL, this can be recognized by Kunena BBcode parser, BUT IT WILL NOT BE RECOGNIZED BY JOOMLA CORE SEF PLUGIN!

Which rule should I follow?

I think Kunena should change your rule to obey the Joomla core rules.

Thank you.


This bug still exists in Kunena 5.0 beta. Today I tested following two links on K5 b1:

I just input following source code in Kunena editor:

The first one is:
This is a [url=index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=314&Itemid=19]link[/url], I inserted it without begin with a slah (/) symbol.


The second one is:
This is another [url=/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=314&Itemid=19]link[/url], I inserted it with begining slah (/) symbol.

After submission, the first one was NOT converted to a link. But the second one was converted.

Don't you think this is a bug?
