  • Links not posting

    I am not able to post links or hyperlink text on replies on my site ( I recently had a series of "internal server error" messages and my webhost suggestied upgraded to php 7.0, which fixed that problem, but today I tried to reply to a post using a link to my own web site and get this response:

    This page isnít working is currently unable to handle this request.

    HTTP ERROR 500

    I am able to submit text as a response without problems, but if linkage appears anywhere within the text it produces that message. I don't know if this is a server problem or a configuration problem, but I do know that it is a new problem. The only other change that might possibly play a part is that while I was upgrading the .php version I also enable the free SSL option. I'll see if I can disable that and if that changes anything.

    vBulletin 3.8.9 is not compatible with php 7.

    You will need to upgrade vBulletin to 3.8.11 if you want to run php 7.
