Description Michael Toews 2007-02-19 21:45:09 UTC
In the present version of Wikipedia (can't find version number!), the urlencode
string parser function double encodes. For example: "{{urlencode:<}}" results in
"%26lt%3B", when a correct result should be "%3". Here, the string is first
encoded into "&gt;", which then gets encoded into raw format, "&" into "%26" and
";" into "%3B".
Comment 1 Rob Church 2007-06-20 07:36:41 UTC
This appears to be the result of encoding occurring further up the parse chain; the function itself is receiving "&lt;" as input.
Comment 2 Michael Toews 2008-05-06 15:16:51 UTC
I have noticed that this bug has been fixed (in version 1.13alpha (r34282)).
