Bug with external url's

Reported by: fdi Owned by:
Milestone: Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 2.7.1
Component: General Keywords: reporter-feedback
Focuses: Cc:


Example: http://www.mariarosadiez.com/seosarao-o-el-arte-del-buen-rollo/#comment-34928

Like you see, WP converts external urls with errors: http://www.seosarao.com/'%20rel='external%20nofollow

It is not from template (this happens with default theme as well). It is not for pluggins (not pluggings installed while testing the bug).

Note : I have reinstall WP 2.7.1 and the problem follows there.

Are you sure all plugins were disabled, And that no caching was running?

It looks to me that it's due to the Google Analytics plugin to me.

The HTML differs from what WordPress outputs:

<a href='$url' rel='external nofollow' class='url'>

Whilst yours reads:

<a href="http://www.seosarao.com/' rel='external nofollow" onclick="javascript:urchinTracker('/outbound/commentauthor/www.seosarao.com');" class='url'>

Note specifically that the first quotation mark in your code differs from that of WordPress's.. Given that the GA plugin modifies the HTML to add the onclick.. i'm pretty sure thats your problem..

  • Milestone Unassigned deleted

it's due to his GA plugin.
