Posting URL's with embedded parenthesees

Postby johnnyonthespot » 12 Jan 2010, 14:53

I have noticed that the board cannot properly display URL's which included embedded parenthesees. For example, Wikipedia's page on Maida CZ is located at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_(CZ).

When posted as a standard URL, the board messes up: Wikipedia's Maida page.

You can fix this by replacing the "(" with "%28" and the ")" with "%29" - the hexidecimal representations of the () characters hence, Wikipedia's Maida page.

I see what you mean, it shows up as
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_%28CZ%29
while it should be
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maida_(CZ).
