Using quotation marks in URLs

Postby servantofgod » Wed Oct 22, 2008 7:09 am

Is it not possible to get the server to accept quotation marks? for example If I have "" marks in my url (due to the fact my product names are reflected in the url, no matter what characters) It will completely dissappate the rest of the url beyond the quotation marks. Anyway around this?

For an example visit:

http://www.whatsshopping.com/subcategor ... =92&page=2

Look at the url for: Leather Sean Jean Belt with "SJ" Plackett Buckle

I can't see the problem URL on that page.

I'm guessing though that the problem is that they are being confused with the href='s ", eg.
Code: Select all
<a href="/abc"def"ghi">

If that is the case, they need to be URL encoded, so the output is
Code: Select all
<a href="/abc%22def%22ghi">
