Please fix Where do I post X

Having a general perl question (i.e., not code related), I was wondering where to post it. So I clicked Where do I post X? , and got a big long list of search results that didn't seem to have anything to do with what I was looking for. Try it and see.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I thought I had a quick answer to the poster's question. The hash character in the fragment was URI escaped. While I was trying to craft a reply I noticed a problem with a link I was trying to create:

    How does this markup

    <a href ="http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node=Site%20How%20To#where +doipost">http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node=Site%20How%20To#where +doipost</a>

    ...become a link with this href?

    http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?parent=164085&title=Please%20fix%20W +here%20do%20I%20post%20X&lastnode_id=164085&displaytype=display&type= +superdoc&node=Comment%20on

    This link demonstrates the problem:
    http://www.perlmonks.org/index.pl?node=Site%20How%20To#wheredoipost

    Is this a bug or a feature?

    conv

    Update
    After submission the link href has been changed yet again. Should I be using '[url]' instead?

    As of today (three years later ;-), the best way to construct such a link is:

    [href://?node_id=9953#wheredoipost|Where do I post X?]
    which yields Where do I post X?

    OT PS: that doc has been superceded by the PerlMonks FAQ, and that particular section has been superceded by Where should I post X?

    We're building the house of the future together.
