ignore url tag

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
hello there,
I am using preg_replace to add code tags to links and its working perfectly fine..
if there is a [img] tag it will ignore and wont add a code tag to the [img]..
I would like an addition to it.. something to ignore if it contains a [url] tag just like img..
how can I do that with the current code I have?
$post = preg_replace("/(?<!\img])(http|ftp|https):\/\/[\w\-_]+(\.[\w\-_]+)+([\w\-\.,@?^=%&amp;:\/~\+#]*[\w\-\@?^=%&amp;\/~\+#])?/i","[code]\\0[/code]",$post);
