Blogroll - links do not allow certain characters (5 posts)

    I have a link for a flickr page that I want to include in my blogroll. The link includes the @ symbol, but unfortunately the blogroll doesn't seem to allow this symbol within a URL (it just gets deleted), and so I am left with a broken link.

    Try it yourself, the link is
    http://www.flickr.com/photos/18027381@N00/sets/72157600055541250/

    Anyone know a way round this? Or should I just report this as a bug?

    Thanks

    Does replacing the @ symbol with @ work?

    However I understood that anything before an @ symbol in a URL was ignored by the browser.

    No, this doesn't work. WordPress just deletes the symbol whenever I try to make the link.

    How frustrating!!

    I see that my post didn't display correctly. What I wrote was have you tried replacing the @ symbol with & #64; (but without the space).

    Brilliant, that worked.

    Thanks a lot.
