[resolved] Comment with link, domain being added to the front (5 posts)

    If a user leaves a comment with a link, the domain of the first link is added to the beginning of the comment.

    For example, a user leaves a comment with a link:

    Hey! Great article. I wrote one very similar.

    When the comment is published it shows up like this:

    example.comHey! Great article. I wrote one very similar.

    If I try to edit out the offending text from within WP, it reappears afterward. I am only able to get rid of the text by editing the comment in phpMyAdmin.

    Any ideas?

    Have them include the http:// in the links they leave in comments?

    The http:// is there.

    I don't get it; I thought it might be a plugin and disabled my prime suspect. I posted a comment with a link on a very old post and subsequently noticed no rogue text.

    Then, to double check, I turned that plugin back on and posted a second test. It again showed no text at the beginning. This doesn't even make sense.

    Found it. It was Block-lists Anti-Spam Measures. That plugin was adding the domain to the comment. Oh well. Don't guess I really need yet another anti-spam plugin, anyway. :o)
