In my posts on my setup, between every letter there is a <a href></a>.

Screenshot in Chrome Inspector:

I've tried enabling and disabling MathJax and autolinking. I don't have any other special or custom HTML, JavaScript, or CSS.

This issue prevents MathJax from correctly parsing a post (so equations will render in preview, but not when posted).

This occurred for me on the two places I've tested, Chrome and Firefox on Mac Lion.

It will be fixed today, for now - disable url patterns in the "markup" section of the admin settings.

edit: fixed in 0.7.37

Thanks for the quick response. I think I've disabled it (it was once enabled) but it still occurs. We'll use ASCII for now, shouldn't be a big deal (yet).

The previously parsed version of the text will be stored in the database, we'll have to make a healing management command to re-parse all the posts. Also, restart the app (e.g. the webserver or wsgi daemon), it is possible that the broken replacement patterns are still in the memory.

Btw, autolinking of simple urls is enabled by default, I think the setting may actually be misleading. It applies to the special patterns that can be added to the box below.

Ah, restarting the wsgi daemon worked, thanks a lot! This is a great project, keep up the awesome work!
