I have a custom field rigged up to search wikipedia:
<!--IFcustom1<div class="field"><div class="title">[translate:custom1]:</div>
When the title happens to be more than one word it flies over to Wikipedia thusly, for example: The%20Host and the search results suck.
That's bummer #1 if anyone can help out.
Bummer #2 is if wikipedia has (I guess they are called) high ascii characters in it's URL it won't drag to the Info Window successfully.
For example, any title that must be distinguished as a film because there is also a book or some other such thing with the same title, like Audition, it shows up at Wikipedia as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audition_%28film%29 from the disambiguation page.
It wants to be: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audition_(1999_film)
Here's what's weird, if you copy one of the 'bad' URLs, like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Audition_%28film%29 from the location field of your browser (or from the "copy link location" contextual menu), quit the browser and reopen it, and paste that 'bad' URL into the location field and hit return it will go to the right page. (As you may have noticed, that link is also accurately clickable from here)
But when you drag the bad URL into dvdPedia (via the Favicon), or copy/paste it to the links TAB and then click it from dvdpedia it throws up this:
- Code: Select all
and Wikipedia says:
The requested page title is invalid. It may be empty, contain unsupported characters, or include a non-local or incorrectly linked interwiki prefix.
Am I just trying to do things that dvdpedia isn't intended to do, or is it that I have my text encoding settings wrong, or is dvdpedia parsing something strangely?
Any insight will be appreciated.
