Jeff, can you tell us whether this will work with the new parser? Can this kind of URL even work with (non-self-closing) url tags?

If it does work with the new parser, I would just try to live with it and then be happy about it in 2.0 smile

It is not allowed in the new parser. Here is the error message:

Invalid URL name:[]=debug

It is a non-issue when the URL is encoded:

The URL in question is invalid.

Square brackets are not allowed in the query portion of a URL. The only place they are allowed is to delimit a host specified as an IP literal (see: RFC-3986).

  • Milestone set to 1.4.8.

So that means it's not a bug, but by design. Which in turn means this can be closed wink

I think so. Linkify will leave the URL as it and not make it clickable.

  • Status changed from open to invalid.
