Hm, not that I know of. Since you say it only happens here, it must be fixable. I'll look into it.

Weird.

In your UBB control panel, select Miscellaneous Settings. The last setting is "String Length Limit." Change this to allow longer strings of text, like long URLs. I believe the default is 180.

As far as I know, it's in gorgonzola's hands.

I agree that it's an irritating limitation.
