Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

When I click on the Facebook link for this question it gives a link like this:

http://http%3A%2F%2Fstackoverflow.com%2Fq%2F5262039%2F213725/

Does anybody experience a similar problem?

Note that the last 213725 is your user id. – Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:31

This is simply the encoded URL in the Facebook sharing querystring.

http://www.facebook.com/sharer.php?u=http%3a%2f%2fstackoverflow.com%2fq%2f5608131%2f1&t=Wijmo+Dialog+Feature+visible+problems

In the actual sharing on Facebook it will be correct:

isn't this about the double http in http://http%3A%2F%2F, that apparently shows after clicking that link? (Still then, I guess that is a Facebook error then, unless FB wants the links without the http:// prefix, or unless FB does not recognize the encoded %3A%2F%2F and then prefixes http:// itself? I'm not using FB, so cannot test.) – Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:45
    
(If FB does —or did— not recognize the %3A%2F%2F then that is their fault too, of course.) – Arjan Apr 10 '11 at 15:53
