As a Wikidata editor I want to be able to enter a value that contains a space character for an external ID Property like Archive Of Our Own tag (P8419) and have the URL to result to the entry of the value on the external website.
One example: When I follow the link provided by Archive Of Our Own tag (P8419), spaces in the value are replaced by "+" in the resulting URL and the link does not work. <- For this particular example this is now no longer the case because on WD the formatter URL has been replaced by a tool that handles this better.
https://test.wikidata.org/wiki/Q140422 - the external ID "Harry Potter" contains a space. The space is converted to a + in the URL instead of leaving it a space or encoding it to %20.
Editor does not manually replace space character with %20 in entered value.
See report on Property talk:P8419.
- Do we always want to convert spaces to %20 in external IDs?
- Yes, unless "other website" needs us to code it differently
