Wow. That sounds... somewhat familiar. I don't have a kid yet, but my wife has been sick. She find now, but I have the flu since yesterday. I did not get a rude email, but I did get a (new) rude boss. And I can't tell if he's always like that, or only because he's lost quite a lot of money he had in shares, with this financial crises & all. But I do know that for now I'll have to cope with his attitude...

Rude Email? From someone totally unknown or someone familiar?

Some project lead somewhere in Ireland. Never met him before.

But things are better now now that the week-end is about to start. I should get myself a good beer ASAP.

Can I post some special tips for the [url] tag in "Forum Rules and Instructions"?

(hmm, It's closed so I can't anyway, so I'll just post it here so you can add it)

Special URL case

You can not have parentheses nor spaces in a link's address.

Example:

Spam Info

As you can see, it doesn't work.

So, what can we do if we have such an address? How can we link to it?

We have to use the % type and write the ASCII code for the respective character.

Here are some ASCII codes:

28 - (
29 - )
20 - space

So, the above should be written as:

Code: Select all

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spam_%28electronic%29]Spam Info[/url]

Which works:

Spam Info

@Asheera
Yes, that's cool. How much people do you think that it will be using that way? Because I have very bad experience with that, it does look like overcomplicated. Staying in the way instead next to it.

Yes but when you need to link to a site with parentheses in its address (like that Wiki article example) you have no other choice but to use the %28 instead of ( and the %29 instead of ) ... if you want to make a hotlink, that is.

Or actually you meant that you want to "fix" it and make it work with parentheses as well? Oh, my post was just to give a tip to the users, I didn't even intend to "fix" that.

So if it's complicated don't "fix" it... just do it if you want ;)
