Questions about Authoring Links on Sites

Avatar

Level 1

When I am doing my authoring on production, I realized my links seem to look like this

/mnt/overlay/wcm/core/content/sites/xxx.html?item=%2Fcontent%2Fxxx%2Fxx%2Fxx%2Fxx%2Fxx%2

 

Will all these "%2F" cause problem when I publish? Thanks!

Hi @mengliang10 

 

The url looks with the values of query params with special characters which are getting encrypted: https://www.w3schools.com/tags/ref_urlencode.ASP. I am not sure why its authored like this but if you are doing it to redirect the page, it will create issues.

 

Thanks,

No, it won't cause problems. It's just the URL-encoding of the slashes, and it's represented correctly within AEM.
