I
understand why y'all have done it, but I really don't like it.
That said, I have a couple-few suggestions for improvements.
First, lose the autolinking in topic lists. It eliminates all of the
title following the link, reducing some topics to only a couple-few
letters of viable target. Links in the thread text itself have
virtually zero risk of accidental activation. You could, I suppose,
change the color of the site-link to distinguish it from the
thread-link -- but clicking on something (accidentally or not) and
being taken to the advertising/ordering website instead of the thread
you wanted to read might seem like the forum-goer is being "tricked".
Also, program the site-link to open another window -- it is very
annoying to be thrown out of the forum.
Second, please address the formatting issue that arises when an
existing post is edited (using the Edit function). Like I just did.

Thank you.

If you check some recent threads, the autolink feature is producing garbled text such as:

<a href='jumpto.php?MBS' title='More about MBS ...' class='wrapped_url'>MBS</a>

This feature isn't working properly. Please give it a major overhaul so that it does what it is supposed to do, AND to correct the annoying Edit-reformat bug.

I hate it... If something I type turns into an autolink I change the spelling (Den O' Evil) to circumvent autolinking.
