I'm not sure if this is the place to report bugs, but I've discovered a problem with how the forums parse the hash character (#).

They seem to be interpreting hashes too aggressively as Twitter hashtags. Here is a test post I did to illustrate:

http://forums.creativecow.net/readpost/37/857351

There is a hash in the URL of the link, and the Forums wreck the URL by parsing it as Twitter traffic. Oddly, this only happens after the post is published, the links work as expected when previewing a post.

My suggestion would be to disable Twitter parsing for text within href or code tags.

Thanks!

Best,
Andy
