AutoLink and textareas



Hi folks

Enabled AutoLink last night and users started complaining about our quote function (which shows a field being empty when it should have the quoted text.

Looking at the HTML source the quoted text is there but once the AutoLink app runs the content is hidden.

Disabled AutoLink and everything works as normal again.

This happens with both only and TinyMCE-enabled fields.

A friend reported similar behaviour on his website as well.


Hi @freitasm, thanks for reporting. Can you tell us more about the quote function that stopped working? What does it do? Is it a part of your theme, or was it something you installed?


Hi Zack

It was just a normal textarea with the exception that it is automatically pre-filled with [quote] BBCode tags.
