Difference to put a link with "|"

HI, I have a like like

http://xxx.com:9000/yyy.rb?7|999999

and I find it is is very difficult to put in wiki page of confluence, when I click the link, it always just drop "999999", or drop "7|999999" , anyone have clue about that?

Since "|" is the divider between link URL and label, it will get cut off. Is that a legal URL?

Here is another alternative you could use:

[My label | http://xxx.com:9000/yyy.rb?7\|999999]

Thanks, already tried but doesn't work, it or drop "999999"

URL encode the "|" character to %7C to fix the URL

"|" is not a valid character. Insomniacs can read this if they don't believe me.

Updated :)

Thanks, it look like working but that server show an exception message say URL doesn't able to parse. Then I refresh and it show ok.

Look like if %7C passed to that server, it doesn't really send as "|". but just browser will show as "|"
