urls like "http://peopleportal2/my/activeperson.aspx?accountname=pient\aqwd1" is not getting recognized as a link in readme.md

I am trying to access my company portal url but it is not getting recognised as a url in readme.md

On inspecting the html the href attribute is not even added.

I have added screen shots.inspect.png

This looks like a bug in Stash's current implementation of Markdown, you can create a bug report here.

As a workaround, you can use %5C in the URL in place of the backspace like this:

[Rooth Joshwa](http://peopleportal2/my/activeperson.aspx?accountname=sapient%5Crjoshw)

Edit: I investigated some more, and according to RFC 3986, a backslash can not be part of an URI. So it's not a bug, and the above suggestion is the right way to write the URI.

Thanks, it works now.
