I just posted a topic twice in the "Misc" section and it shows up as no text, although the text is readable by quoting (on my side anyways).

Please erase duplicates...

I have noticed this too when I am posting something with a link..

Make sure your URL
Code:
[url][/url]
tabs are touching the full link

Also make sure the URL itself has no spaces, line feeds or other strange characters in it. If nothing else works, leave off the html tags that make the URL live.

I know what you guys are talking about, but those were done in completely regular fashion, and I tried modifying my post again without actually posting (preview) and it still didn't work.

It's not the first time I'm posting URLs on here anyways, I've done it many times without problems.

Although I don't know if the bug is limited to the Misc thread or just my thread for some reason (I've seen similar bugs on other forums).

It looks like phpBB (the forum software) doesn't like parentheses within url tags. They can be replaced with %28 and %29.

So, using an example from your Cool hardware post, changing this:
Code:
[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_(console)[/url]

to this:
Code:
[url]http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_%28console%29[/url]

gives this:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pandora_%28console%29

Or, as Flash suggested, you can simply leave off the tags and let the reader cut and paste.

Could you please post a link to one of those threads that did not work?

It's the thread on the Ben NanoNote and Pandora in the Misc. section. Click on the blue text "Cool hardware" in npierce's post.

Looks like he figured it out, hit the nail on the head or however you say it.
