We create links in FogBUGZ to our Microsoft SharePoint service. However, many of the document titles in SharePoint automatically get changed - most of them with some version at the end (e.g. SpecificationX (2.0).doc). When I copy the link into FogBUGZ and save it, the hyperlink stops before the closing parenthesis. So, the link I get will be something like "http://server/path/Specification (2.0" cutting off ").doc".
Is there a space there before the (?
Yes, there is a space, which is also not handled. Does the whole string need to be URL encoded?
Yes ... if you use %20 or even + for the space it should work right.
A solution might be to add some code to manipulate custom tags, something like [url http://any invalid url/blah], then URLEncoding it.
