How to include a url that has braces?

I have a url I want to include on my trello card. It is something like

 

https://example.com/#(awkward-braces)

 

The braces in the url completely bork trello's attempts at formatting the url. Link markup doesn't work, either for alternate text of the url, or for trello's automatic href markup.

Is there a way of including links like this in my card without having to encode braces myself, or just treating it as non-marked up "code"?

Hi Martin,

Marta here from Trello Support.

I'm afraid I haven't been able to reproduce what you're experiencing. When I add "https://example.com/#(awkward-braces)" on a card's comment or description, the URL will get formatted correctly.

Could you please contact us on trello.com/contact and give us further detail about the issue so we can troubleshoot with you?

Thanks!

Huh, that's odd, it doesn't behave properly for me.

Here's a screenshot of that url in a comment:

The underling stops at first brace, as does the actual url that's linked.

Please contact us on support so we can further troubleshoot this. It would be helpful if you could send us a screenshot with your console open to investigate what the problem might be.

Thanks!
