|Summary||0009558: Url encoded urls in $g_manual_url fail to show properly|
When entering a url encoded url in $g_manual_url in the config file, you would expect the link for User Documentation to work according to what you specified.
This is what url encoding is: http://www.blooberry.com/indexdot/html/topics/urlencoding.htm
If you manually replace the encode values with the actual values thinking that this would work to then you are confronted with bug 0009370.
One workaround that seems to work is to take your (long, encoded) url and create a tinyurl ( http://tinyurl.com/ ) and put that in your config file.

So, AFAICS we just need to port the fix for 0009370 to the stable branch?
No there are 2 issues:
They are separate but related, my issue pertains to 1.
IMHO there should be no need to manually urlencode the link, as regular users could be completely unaware of what that means or imply.
However, I'd expect any string you use for $g_manual_url to be properly urlencoded before being shown on the menu.
Can you please show me an example of one not working?
