Trust me -- I care, yet am unfamiliar with your terminology.

Are you referring to the "and[]=S.LaRue" in the URL?

And if so, how does one go about "URL-escaping" such a thing. It's not something I put there intentionally.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention, even though I don't know what it's causing to happen that isn't acceptable.

Guessing, I'd say you want the brackets replaced with %5B and %5D?

If so, is it worth trying to define for me? Or should I just do it and shut up?

Thanks - S

When I click on the link in your post it takes me to the S. LaRue page and the URL has the %5B, %5D characters -- not the brackets.


Coding makes me cry like a little girl and the page you linked me to, of course made little to no sense to a non-coder.

I'm a musician and video editor -- what's the best way to avoid the brackets, which I do not see when going to the page, or copying an pasting the link elsewhere?

https://archive.org/details/movies?and[]=S,larue isn't clickable (to the intended page, anyway).

https://archive.org/details/movies?and[]=S,larue is (and is more aesthetically correct).

Right-click this very Forums page and select "View page source" (or "View Source Code)" -- your mileage may vary -- to see how the HTML coding is done.

I've been working on another individual (so far with no success) in another Forums area, and on another kind of HTML coding problem, which may help you: getting it right.

I entered a reply and it vanished.
I can't make the forum work correctly and I just proved you are correct in saying:
The TWO IDENTICAL LINKS TO S. LARUE are invalid.

Have you a suggestion or solution for this problem I've never once encountered?

I want to do this in a way that will ease suffering. What might that be?

That was my fault. Try again.

Your fault?
What are you referring to?

Trying again is not an option I currently have -- each time I click the email link to get here, everything is gone but your most recent reply.

Yours is a case in point as to why I hate mobiles.

The reason your reply vanished was that I deleted a post and tried again while you were in mid-composition. My apologies.

Bottom line: right-click on any given page and study the source code. It may become a hobby.

A new friend - a website guy - told me you could do that and I haven't tried it yet.

I have never owned a mobile phone in my life and have no plan to.

I also have pressing business in the arts and will not be learning code anytime soon I fear.

Turning 55 found me at loose ends, now 60, all I do is pump it out. Music, literature any form of art you might want to mention, with video editing being the latest toy for my juices to spill on.

I'm told 2 or 3 times a week I need to be a published writer, with my response being, "Excellent idea! You go get it published while I write more."

I seldom if ever reveal my stance, use 4, sometimes 5 aliases just to keep people from calling me a braggart, but those that know me, have seen it, and I have too, and it's not something you can control when you have it.

I opened the S. LaRue account to start posting my literary efforts and like always, I found they all needed the sharp edges sanded down prior to publishing. Some of the work is 10 years old which warrants a full re-write, so, yeh...

I'm busier than I've ever been, and I do it all for free. I live like a hermit, a poor one at that, and ditched everything in 2012 in favor of following my heart at long last.

Am I any good? How would I know? Why would it matter?

JimiMod is global in scale, a brand as it were, that is until I "honestied" my way off the freesound website. My following has straggled by on occasion, but that's not why I do what I do.

I do it because I have no choice. and 80 hour shift is not rare.

I appreciate your calling my attention to a potential issue, probably a real and glaring issue, but kind soul I haven't the time nor the wherewithal to deal with it.

I've notified a couple of code type fellows and will ask if they know of a fix for something wrong I can't even see.
Hah! It's all running fine from my desk.

I honestly appreciate your effort to assist.

And Thank you very much.

I'm calling these done and will post them shortly. Read 'em, toss 'em, edit them. Your call...
