URLs with brackets {}

Post by mrshermanoaks » Sun Apr 16, 2006 8:07 pm

Some of my users have been complaining that URLs in their signatures that contain brackets {} are displaying incorrectly (showing the full text of the URL link, including the URL tags). I guess some of them have been able to change the brackets to their codes (ie & # 1 2 3 ;), but was curious if this was a bug or a purposeful change in phpBB?

No, it's not a bug. Those are invalid URL characters and you should use %7B for { and %7D for } instead.
