Glad to see it's still bein' worked on and not forgotten.
Ok the good news is the new patch is now live.
The bad news is they have now decided the problem we have is not a bug.
Ok going to get a bit technical so just skip it if not interested.
What they are saying is in the past the PHP version the forum runs on was incapable of recognising how many links each post had, this in theory could cause memory problems with PHP with posts that had a large number of BBcode like ours.
Posts as large as this with as many BBcodes are rare on phpBB forums but not unknown, the downside part is the new code can recognise this problem and will limit the number of BBcodes in each post.
I won't be installing the new patch yet as it still has a few teething problems.
But when i do we will have two options, first is i can install an extension that will tell the software to ignore the limit
this will correct the post but i am a bit worried about doing this in case it gives problems later on.
Second option is to delete the second post in that thread (i'm sure MadManCK won't mind
) this would then make the third post the second post and this is one of your posts so we could cut half of the first post and past it into the second post as a continued post and all would work again as the BBcode limit is per post.
(hope you can follow that
One last thing when i tried this on the test forum some of the [/size} BBcode tags didn't phrase correctly so might need tidying up by hand.
