What is meta? ×
Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 134 Stack Exchange communities.

Writing URLs in comments that include square brackets like:

[text](http://somesite.com/index.php?x[]=y)

requires escaping the brackets in order for the link to work properly (otherwise, the square brackets vanish from the link):

[text](http://somesite.com/index.php?x\[\]=y)

An example of a useful URL containing square brackets:

http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3?stat=3&search=php-common&srodzaj=3&dist[]=55
