    I am using the Hyperlink Properties to enter the following url:


    After the editor contents are posted back to the database, the code gets converted to:


    This also happens if I use the tilde as follows:


    Is there any solution to this? Is there a secret to entering a relative URL in the editor?

    Hello Clark,

    I was unable to reproduce the problem on my side. Are you able to reproduce it using Save In Database Demo? Could you, please, provide more information about:

    1. Product version
    2. The browser that you are using
    3. Steps to reproduce the problem

    Furthermore, you can open a support ticket and attach a sample project where the behavior you are experiencing can be observed, so I can take a look at it and think of a solution.

    Best wishes,

    We have this same problem. We use ~ in all our links to get replaced at runtime with our server root path. After upgrading to the latest radEditor, we noticed it replaced all ~ in urls with its encoded equivalent. This only seems to be happening in firefox 3.5 on mac. I have not tested it on the PC version.

    Hi Jason,

    The encoding of the URL is expected browser behavior - RadEditor's content area is an editable IFRAME and it is extending the browser's default RichText editing engine. For the time being we do not plan to change this behavior.
    You can find more information on the subject in the following articles:
    HTML URL Encoding Reference

    As a workaround for your scenario I suggest you to find and replace the encoded string (%7E) instead of the exact symbol (~).

    Kind regards,
    the Telerik team
