Hi @ all.

I think I have found a bug. At least I did not find any post regarding this, so please check the follwing:

Imagine the following options are set in "Kunena settings -> BBCode"
  • Auto-Link URLs = Yes
  • Smart Auto Linking = Yes
  • Auto Embed eBay Items =No
... and both "eBay Affiliate ID" and "eBay AppID key" are empty. Now create a new post and enter an Ebay-URL. Save the post and you will see nothing, the Ebay-URL has disappeared. If you write the URL between the URL tags, everything is fine. If you disable "Smart Auto Linking", everything is fine too, with or without the URL tags. If I set the "Auto Embed eBay Items" to YES, it does not change anything because the Ebay IDs are not set (I don't have any).

Please, if this bug has already been described, call me a blind fool :whistle:

I have to add this: A URL like
https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.es%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192768726443
shows the result as described above. But if I write the direct link to the article, it works fine
https://www.ebay.es/itm/192768726443 -> https://www.ebay.es/itm/192768726443

Strange....

Thank you for reporting this bug.
But I think it has nothing to do with eBay links. The problem is the option Smart Auto Linking. If you use this option no links are displayed. I will add it to our bug list.

Here on my site this only happens with Ebay-Links. Normal links to websites get converted as expected:



But I have disabled this option again, because it has massive effects on the performance. If you have Smart Auto lnking on and you open a thread with many URLs in it, it sometimes takes 10 or more seconds until the thread opens.

OK, I found the cause. Now I think it's not a bug. If you use Auto-Link URLs and Smart Auto Linking it will display the title from the source code of this linked page. If this information is not available, it can't display the title. Therefore you see nothing.
Probably you noticed it only on eBay, because this page redirects some urls. On eBay you can see the redirected result but Smart Auto Linking search the infos from the entered url.


I have to add this: A URL like

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.es%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F192768726443

If you want to display an article, you must enter the correct link to the article, that's normal. Enter the first link in your browser, you will see, you get a redirect to the article url. With this url will be the article displayed in Kunena.


But I have disabled this option again, because it has massive effects on the performance. If you have Smart Auto lnking on and you open a thread with many URLs in it, it sometimes takes 10 or more seconds until the thread opens.

There is this information on the option Smart Auto Linking in the backend: Shows the real titles on the URLs. (Can result a high cpu usage)
It's in basically logical because it will always be checked if the link title in the message is synchronized with the browser page title of the linked page.

Hi rich.

You are right. The invisible Links are a matter of how the URL is written. Direct links are always displayed right, only links with redirections seem to be displayed wrong, but this is correct.

And it is understandable that the Smart Auto Linking option causes delays when loading pages with many URLs.

Please mark this topic as "solved", and as always: Thanks for your support!


Kind regards,
Tom
