In How to implement date filters with operators like <= or >= in a JSON query string? user posted this link:

http://example.com/drupal/api(endpoint)/sampleview.json?field_invoice_date_value<='2013-12-31'&field_invoice_date_value>='2013-11-31'

He posted it without formatting, so it ended looking like this:

http://example.com/drupal/api(endpoint)/sampleview.json?field_invoice_date_value<='2013-12-31'&field_invoice_date_value>='2013-11-31'

Not good, right? So I tried to edit it into [url](url) format. In preview it looks OK (hit "edit" to see, just don't save), but in question, see:

http://example.com/drupal/api(endpoint)/sampleview.json?field_invoice_date_value<='2013-12-31'&field_invoice_date_value>='2013-11-31'

It seems there is no way to post this link as a link and keep it displayed properly. Or there is and I just don't know it?


If it's general issue, please consider migration to Meta Stack Overflow.

That string isn't a valid URL, so it shouldn't be displayed as a link.

The editor is processing it correctly per the rules for a valid URL, so it stops as soon as it hits the < character

In such edge cases converting it to a code block as you did is the best course of action.

    Well, the fact it's OK on preview and fails on normal view is a bug for me - even if the correct behavior would be to fail on preview. – Mołot Jan 4 '14 at 16:50

    Yep you're right that still does class as a bug. Think I've seen something similar on MSO I'll try to dig it out – Clive Jan 4 '14 at 17:07
