    I've a second problem along the same sort of lines.

    I am making an index using hyperlinks to the various pages the subject is on but the formatting does not work all the time
    sometimes it takes it and at others it decides it doesn't want to

    Apple and Cinnamon Cake
    Apple Charlotte(diabetic)"]Apricot Oaties[/url](diabetic)"]Apple Shortcake[/url](diabetic)
    Apricot Porridge with Toasted Seeds

    You can see the first two and the last one are fine but the third and forth has not accepted the [url="
    This has to be a fault with the software otherwise it wouldn't be ok sometimes and not on others.

      1. BBCode doesn't work in Emails. BBCode doesn't work anywhere except in vBulletin. Emails are text only. There is a bug report to improve BBCode handling in Email.

      2. The code you're using for your list is malformed. What browser are you using and how are you copying and pasting this into the editor? I recommend using the keyboard hot keys for paste and not using the Paste as Test or Paste as Word buttons.

      You can use the Source button in the editor to see and clean up your source code as necessary. It is the top-left icon.

      This is your code:
      [URL=""]Apple and Cinnamon Cake[/URL]
      [URL=""]Apple Charlotte[/URL](diabetic)
      [URL="http://%5Burl%3D%22http://%5B/SIZE%5D%5BURL=%22"][/URL]"]Apricot Oaties[/url](diabetic)
      [URL="http://%5Burl%3D%22http://%5BURL=%22"][/URL]"]Apple Shortcake[/url](diabetic)
      [URL=""]Apricot Porridge with Toasted Seeds[/URL]
      If you need exact placement and layout of your content, then you should think about using HTML. Providing this permission to the Administrator allows you to do a lot more than you can do with BBCode.

        i wish I was as cleaver as you Wayne and I was 50 years younger.

        Thank you so much for your reply, I just tried that and it works a treat. I will use html in future.

        Thanks again
