    Link gets mangled

    Roast Chicken With Lemon, Za’atar, and Potatoes

    That should say za'atar, it looks correct on the recipe itself, but when I post it as a link it gets mangled. icon_eek.gif Is it because of the apostrophe?

    I think it is. They had a problem with symbols in titles before.

    It's the ampersand. It has never worked in the search field, even back when Troy Hakala was running things.
    I'd change the title.

    There was also someone who was upset because their recipe title had changed and they were arguing about the number of characters allowed, etc. But the ampersand adds a few characters, as you can see, which in that case, caused the person's title to go over the limit. Looks okay when you type it, even in the url, but changes in search results.

    Um, there is no ampersand in za'atar, why would I need to change the title? It appears correctly in the recipe title. icon_confused.gif

    Is this how you are linking the recipe?


    potatoes-495020]Roast Chicken with Lemon Za'atar and Potatoes[/url]

    I had to separate the link so that you can see but if you delete so potatoes comes after and- you will get the example I was testing above.

    I just made a link the same way I originally did (copying and pasting the URL) and now it worked correctly. I have absolutely no idea what it is you are telling me to delete.
    Because time seems to have changed it, does the garbled link have anything to do with the fact that I had just posted the recipe ten minutes earlier ?

    Sorry, I had to separate the entire link or else it would just show up like my test post. What I meant was, if you combined them together

    potatoes-495020]Roast Chicken with Lemon Za'atar and Potatoes [/url]

    This time I just put a space at the very end before [/url] so that you can see what I am trying to explain how the URL should look for the hyperlink. That would have been easier to explain, I am sorry for the confusion!!
