Summary
LATEX fails if a footnote url contains an #anchor
Type
Bug
Raised by
John Rankin
Date opened
Thursday, 1 September 2005
Description
When composing a page with external links, these are shown in footnotes. If such a link ends in an anchor, LATEX fails and no pdf is returned. For example,
…. [[http://www.example.com/page#anchor | this example]]
Importance

Proposed solution
The wikipublisher script has a patch to detect and remove such anchors. The link text in the pdf shows the anchor name, but the link itself removes it. So clicking on the link in the pdf takes you to the page, but not the reference. The displayed text is correct.
LATEX appears to be interpreting the # as a variable reference. We will create a simple LATEX document to verify the error, then ask for help on usenet.

Resolution
We also had to detect references to wiki pages with anchors and remove these. The (w) becomes (w#anchor). There is no obvious work-around.
