Markdown links with ... in the text

(Neil Lalonde) #1

This link doesn’t get cooked into html very well…

[ ... wat](

This creates a link to google, a link to url that can’t be clicked, and renders " … wat" after the links:

<a href=""></a>
<a href="http:///"></a>
... wat

This is annoying because phpBB shortens links exactly like that, so all those links are broken after an import.

Pandoc and pagedown are good here:

Babelmark 2 - Compare markdown implementations…+wat%5D(

Should a fairly straight forward fix I think.

Maybe collapse it for now? Just remove the spaces as a workaround.

@eviltrout this needs a fix Monday since it is kind of blocking phpbb imports a little.

It’s not blocking anymore. If the http://(www\.)? is stripped, it works even with the extra spaces around ....
