Changing URL - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

We have recently moved to contribute here at our library. We have a lot of links to different resources, though we noticed a problem with URL characters being rewritten. Specifically, colon characters are being translated to %3A, which typically isn't that big of a deal, but in our case it is as the link is being passed through a URL rewriting proxy. For example this URL [url]http://proxy.wm.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip[/url] ,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=sbh is rewritten as [url]http://proxy.wm.edu/login?url=http%3A//search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=[/url] ip,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=sbh This effectively "breaks" our links. Anyone know how to turn this "feature" off? I've looked all over and haven't found anything. Thanks, Wayne...

    Default Changing URL

    We have recently moved to contribute here at our library. We have a lot of
    links to different resources, though we noticed a problem with URL characters
    being rewritten. Specifically, colon characters are being translated to %3A,
    which typically isn't that big of a deal, but in our case it is as the link is
    being passed through a URL rewriting proxy.

    For example this URL
    [url]http://proxy.wm.edu/login?url=http://search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=ip[/url]
    ,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=sbh

    is rewritten as

    [url]http://proxy.wm.edu/login?url=http%3A//search.ebscohost.com/login.aspx?authtype=[/url]
    ip,uid&profile=ehost&defaultdb=sbh

    This effectively "breaks" our links. Anyone know how to turn this "feature"
    off? I've looked all over and haven't found anything.

    Thanks,

    Wayne

    Is the URL in the source or the content? If it is a link to something it
    shouldn't be doing that to the link in the code. In the text on the page it
    might do that... do you have a link to the page this is happening?

    Sure...

    [url]http://swem.wm.edu/temp/graham/[/url]

    I did go to the Advanced Options in the Link Browser and manually put in the
    colon to make sure it was there; when it uploaded to the server, it turned it
    back into "%3A"

    What version of Contribute? That seems like a bug to me. I need to try and recreate it...

    I am having the same problem, my link is:
    [url]http://www.ashland.edu:2048/login?url=http://ashlanduni.naxosmusiclibrary.com[/url]

    when posted it is changed to:

    [url]http://www.ashland.edu:2048/login?url=http%3A//ashlanduni.naxosmusiclibrary.com[/url]

    I have tried pasting this URL in the advanced section of the insert link
    window and it still auto-corrects (once I publish). I am using Contribute CS3

    Has anyone found a way resolve this?

    i was able to find a tech note for this issue:
    [url]http://www.adobe.com/go/bd557a81[/url]

    and as discussed, contribute engrs are aware of this and they are currently
    working on it. The work around suggested is to use the HREF field in the
    'Insert Link' dialog box instead.

    I tried this workaround and it doesn't work. The colon still gets
    rewritten to %3A in the URL.
