[resolved] URL Conversion Issues (4 posts)

    Hi there,

    Just wanted to bring an issue I've experienced to light, in case there's a fix that can be done software-side.

    In Zotero, I typically just copy and paste URLs once I upload a file. This effectively puts "%20" in place of spaces, and adds other URL codes for other symbols.

    However, when syncing with Zotpress, the parser appears to read "%20" and change the "%" to "%%" thinking that I wanted a percentage symbol, and the "20" was part of the URL.

    It's more of an annoyance than anything else. I'm going into our 300+ publications and changing all the instances of %20 to regular spaces, but was curious as to whether this is something the Zotpress parser could read and either leave it alone or convert to a space. Something like a URL converter-then-unconverter approach, to ensure that type of issue doesn't come up.

    I've added the decode-encode functionality in 5.0.7 -- check it out!

    I have another URL conversion issue with ? in URLs. A space is being added after the ? which breaks the URL. An example is:

    That URL seems to work for me (I don't see a space, either). Please let me know if you're still experiencing the problem.
