URL pasted link issue


HelpSpot v4.5.7
Chrome Version 55.0.2883.87 m (64-bit)

I sometimes insert links to related HelpSpot requests in to a request I’m currently working on.

I recently copied the URL for a closed request in to a new request, and it seems the URL treatment of HelpSpot has corrupted the URL address.

Working link:

Broken link:
Visible: http://helpspot.pertronic.local/admin.php?pg=request.static&reqid=30029
Linked address: http://helpspot.pertronic.local/admin.php?pg=request.static&reqid=30029

It appears that “&” gets replaced with “& a m p ;” in the underlying address link (spaced for compatibility).
