See Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Widget_(computing)

Try to put the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Widget_(computing)

(last bracket is missing from link)

Try Interwiki link: Wikipedia:Widget_(computing)

(doesn't link at all)


That is a difficult one to solve properly. The current spec is that TWiki excludes punctuation .,;?) from the URL, e.g. consider this case: TWiki.org (hosted at http://twiki.org/)


  1. Keep existing spec, but Wikipedia example does not work
  2. Change spec so that Wikipedia example works (breaks many other links)
  3. Parse URL for opening parens, and include closing parens if exists (slow at runtime)

I would opt for 1, e.g. discard this item.

Me too. Arthur, if you think a spec change is called for, then please raise it in Codev. For now I'm setting this to no action.
