Adding URL with special Character in URL doesn't work

The URL in question:
=> http://www.costco.ca/ScoopFree%c2%ae-Litter-Trays-Refills-with-Premium-Blue-Crystals.product.100082376.html

In this case it's the "®" or %c2%ae.

Pat,

The URL does still work though when the character is replaced with it's URL code.  Is it not loading properly for you after you link?

Thanks,
Matt

Pat, 

Just re-read this and saw that the OK button was not an option.  I'm not seeing that on my Windows 10 machine.  Will try 7 - what browser?

Thanks,
Matt

Think I posted the wrong URL, give this one a try.

http://www.costco.ca/ScoopFree%c2%ae-Litter-Tray-Refills-with-Premium-Blue-Crystals%2c-9-pack.product.100317451.html

It works in the Browser (Firefox) , I just can't enter the above URL into The Brain

Tried Cut & Paste, Drag & Drop.

Pat,

Yes, that makes a difference.  Seeing the same thing now.  Can't even drag and drop!  

Issue has been documented.

Thank you,

I have problems with URLs with # in it. When I add the URL http://book/Book/#/person/123456 with d&d to the brain, it only adds http://book/Book
I have to change it via "edit location". I can add it via "Enter URL" an add it manually.

Frank,

Thanks for posting. This has been an interesting test.  I'm getting different results in different BROWSERS with that book/book link. 

I can get it to load in Chrome, but then d&d into TheBrain works fine (still an invalid page, but I get the full path) on both macOS and Windows.  What browser are you using?

Thanks,
Matt

Hello Matt

Normally I use the IE for this kind of work, because it ist the "official" browser here, with wich all things I am testing have to work.
Actually it's IE 11.0.9600.18617 Update Version 11.0.40 (32bit). When I d&d the URL http://book/Book/#/person/123456 into the brain from it, it ends there as http://book/Book/#/

I also use FireFox 52.0.2 (32-Bit) with tracking blocker enabled for my "normal" browsing. For this diskussion I tried it from there, it is the same as with IE, it removes the part after the #.

Last but not least I have Chrome Version 57.0.2987.110 (64-bit) for browsing that is tracked anyway like Gmail, Fakebook or when I need more "side data" than privacy. I didn't tested it with Chrome before, but you are right, with Chrome it works like it should, the URL arrives completly in TheBrain. (It's an intranet-page, so it's a valid URL for me ;-) )

OS is Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit and TheBrain 9.0.163

hth,
Frank
