I posted the text below on our askbot server (, and the first link gets shown correctly, but the second one does not. In the edit preview below the text box, both links look correct though.

I think your assessment is correct, Smach assumes the role of the main loop itself, and is kind of awkward to use asynchronously. The Smach roadmap has some pointers to initial experiments with asynchronous Smach. There is even a">repository containing an implementation and example usage of asynchronous Smach.

Wim, there may be a bug in the editor - not sure how that duplicate http got into the input, however - what explains the difference between the previewer and the display view - is that there are two different ways to convert markdown to html. The previewer runs in the browser, while the permanent conversion to html - on the server.

The real problem seems to be opposite - the link like that should not show in the preview correctly.

Actually - if you read the "source code" of your post you will see that there is a duplicate http:// part in the second link, so there is no bug here in the "markdown" -> "html" conversion and you can edit that problem out.

But how that incorrect link got there it is another question - and it does show a possible bug in the previewer.

I have only 1 link in my answer, still facing the same problem i.e. links shows correctly in preview mode but not in the original post. I checked the source code and it's appearing as <a href="a href="></a><a href=""></a>/&lt;/a"&gt;JavaScript............... which is weird.
