U4-3538 - Richtex Editor escapes query parameters in inserted links

Created by Nikolay Arhangelov 14 Nov 2013, 23:47:37 Updated by Shannon Deminick 21 Jun 2017, 07:58:45

Steps to reproduce:

Open the Richtext editor.

Type in some short text - for example 'Test'.

Highlight the text and click 'Insert/Edit Link'.

Enter the following url - http://test.com?a=1&b=2, and click insert.

Inspect the markup of the content:

Notice that & in the query string of the URL is escaped with & - content editors won't be able to paste external links with query parameters.
