[Resolved] hash symbol problem in links
I wanted to add a link to someone’s website in my post. The link has a jump so the entire URL includes a hash symbol. WP kept erasing everything between the href=” and the slash+hash symbol. The erased stuff was the true domain, and when I viewed it on an active web page, my domain was inserted! I tried editing via the rich text editor and directly in the html code. Nothing. The correct domain kept disappearing. I use utf-8 encoding on my site.
Support had 4 entries concerning the hash symbol, which didn’t really help. There was one bug issue at http://trac.wordpress.org/ticket/2385.
It seems as thought this Tiny MCE (http://sourceforge.net/projects/tinymce/) should solve my problem, but it seems like an awful lot of work for this issue. I mean, a link is a link, and shouldn’t anything be permitted between the double quotes in the link?
I was able to add the correct link in a comment to my own post.
