[hasOne]( Classes/hasOne.html)

will not work properly (the same output only connected link is linked).

What website gives out links that have unencoded spaces in them? That's just wrong on so many levels... – animuson Jun 21 '12 at 7:19
testing. hasOne – Shadow Wizard Jun 21 '12 at 7:29
Just manually replace space with %20 and it works. – Shadow Wizard Jun 21 '12 at 7:30

Here you go: hasOne

The trick is to urlencode the space by hand:


... also works for those annoying Wikipedia links with parentheses.

Is it imaginable to autodetect whitespaces in those links and enrich them with %20? As a feature request? – matcauthon Jun 21 '12 at 7:30
@matcauthon Probably not. – Yannis Jun 21 '12 at 7:36
@matcauthon: Whitespaces are used for the [text](URL "title") syntax, so auto-encoding it is not an option. – Dennis Jun 21 '12 at 12:23
