  • Reparsing Links in Text

    A friend of mine is running a forum and he recently imported to vBulletin 3.7.2, although there is an issue.

    All the previous posts that include links are not clickable. For example, if someone posted http://www.vbulletin.com in their post, it's simply text and not a link. Is there a way to massively reparse or update the post content so that links are clickable?

    Oh also, when he manually edits a post and saves the edit, the text "links", turn into actual links, although this isn't very viable having to massively edit all posts. Any ideas?

    Edit: I tried: Rebuild Thread Information, Rebuild Post Cache. No worky

    Thanks in advance!

    He "imported" to 3.7.2? If so, then the links won't be parsed because any imported wouldn't know whether to assume the links should be parsed or not (it's an option when you make your post). When you edit the post, you have the option again to either the links or not and the default is to parse them which is why the links are then parsed.

    If I post CSS and you don't know where it goes, throw it into the additional.css template.

      I figured that was the issue.

      Is there a way to massively reparse existing posts?

        No, I know of no such thing. You would need to write a script to look at every post, see if there are urls in it, if so, parse them, then resave the post.
