A member was trying to link to the Wikipedia article which can be reached via EITHER of these two links:
(I guess I’m going to have to put a space in between all of the symbols at the end so that you can understand what I’m trying to link to. This is the real link (if you remove the spaces):
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steppenwolf _ % 2 8 b a n d % 2 9
The EE software keeps altering the percentage sign followed by those two number into something mangled…)
When the link is created with the parenthesis method, even if we enter it correctly like this:
It automatically removes the parenthesis from around the word “band” and links to this:
And when using the percentage sign method like this:
It comes out mangled and links to this:
Any idea why this is happening or how I can fix it? I successfully created the link on these forums here once I thought, but it appears to be doing the same thing now. Check it out:
Link 1: Steppenwolf
Link 2: Steppenwolf
This is obviously a big problem since Wikipedia is so popular. Any idea on how to fix this? I didn’t think it happened on your official forums but now that I see it does this may even be a bug report.
EDIT 1: Here is another link that won’t format properly in EE:
EDIT 2: Parenthesis don’t work when trying to hotlink an image either.
