We are currently planning to migrate to a different platform for the forum. We will announce this fact both here and on Twitter, once we have settled on a solution.

How to add links with parentheses in them, wikipedia-style?

Is there a way to Ctrl-K links like that to Zettlr:

As you can see, it's a real link, but it's double-cursed: first with parentheses, and then with # immediately following them. I tried all options from this Overflow answer, as well as Reddit-style escape characters \(, but somehow nothing works. Is there a secret to it, or is it more of an improvement area for the markdown interpreter?


  • It's a constant hassle, and I yet have to find a good heuristics for parsing these links. #-characters should not pose a problem, but as for the brackets, simply replace ( with %28 and ) with %29, this should mitigate the problem until I can find a fix.
