On Facebook, try to post a Japanese Wikipedia URL containing a
・ (nakaguro) character (like
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/レオナルド・ダ・ヴィンチ) and you will get a broken link:
・ダ・ヴィンチ has failed to become a link (red arrow above), probably because
・ is mistaken as a kind of delimiter. Notice also that the preview does not have this problem.
One option could be to post the encoded URL, but my message would look really ugly:
How can I solve this, and post this as an URL which:
- is nice-looking
- actually works when clicked
Removing the link altogether is not a good option, because I actually need the preview for another link. Also a scenario that happens often: I take a picture of ヴィクトル・スタルヒン and I post it with the text "Hey I just met http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/ヴィクトル・スタルヒン in the street!". So my question is really for links inside the text part. Also, I have hopes that a solution would also work in comments.
