- A user entered URL in Citoid is not what gets saved to the source.
Steps to reproduce:
a) Use Visual editor to creation a citation, Click Cite, under automatic enter URL, then click generate
a1) Example URL used: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-10/south-africa-court-dismisses-gigaba-appeal-over-lying-under-oath
Expected result: the user provided value will be included in their edit and the title of the URL will be saved to the citation title
Observed result: Citoid is changing the user provided value (in example above to https://www.bloomberg.com/tosv2.html?vid=&uuid=d2ffa440-326b-11ea-95c2-518ae4217675&url=L25ld3MvYXJ0aWNsZXMvMjAxOC0wMy0xMC9zb3V0aC1hZnJpY2EtY291cnQtZGlzbWlzc2VzLWdpZ2FiYS1hcHBlYWwtb3Zlci1seWluZy11bmRlci1vYXRo ) The title returned is "Bloomberg - Are you a robot?"
Impact: This is resulting in a valid editor-provided reference being overwritten with something that has not been vetted by the editor, including in this example a useless link
Attempting to use Citoid to generate a reference to https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2018-03-10/south-africa-court-dismisses-gigaba-appeal-over-lying-under-oath resulted in a title "Bloomberg - Are you a robot?"
I would guess this is suboptimal. Is there anything that can be done from a technical perspective to prevent that response?
