Symbols that doesn't work in external-ids on Wikidata items
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

Hi, when are used some symbols, like "=" and "&", to fill any external-id on Wikidata, it's automatically convert to URL encode, like "%3D" and "%26", what makes the URL breaks. An example of this can be seen here, on The Reptile Database ID field. Despite this, that bug doesn't occur on Wikipedia, where the property are transcluded, and the URL works normally. The discuss about that could be read here. I believe that could be fixed.
