Interpretation of profile-links

(Voxel Pirate) #1

Not sure if this is working as intended, if yes maybe there is a “workaround”…

In the past I was able to add a link to someones profile-page using the Hyperlink-icon. The words I have selected where highlighted as a link and that’s what I wanted.

If I do the same now, I do not see a simple link, but the avatar, a link and the content of the “about me” field. E.g.:

Voxel Pirate

It looks like an incomplete onebox.

In the release deployed on I can overcome this by marking the text (link) as bold inside the brackets which are used to define a hyperlink. However, here this workaround does not work.

Yeah the user oneboxes are pretty broken at the moment. I recommend putting user links in as real links until then, with text on the same line so it doesn’t onebox.

like so: 301 Moved Permanently

Profile link oneboxes are disabled now
