Enonic version: 7.12.2
CS version: 4.5.2
Dear good folks!
I am writing to inform you of a recent development concerning one of the newer versions of XP/CS. One of the latest releases has improved the flexibility of enonics regular expressions, now accepting URL-encoded characters in anchors, as observed in this GitHub issue: Can't add some links in HtmlArea · Issue #2890 · enonic/lib-admin-ui · GitHub.
This modification has opened up the possibility of utilizing URLs, such as: Forskrift om utfyllende tekniske og arkivfaglige bestemmelser om behandling av offentlige arkiver (riksarkivarens forskrift) - Del I. Innledende bestemmelser - Lovdata.
However, we have noted that the current regular expression rules remain too stringent for our editors when it comes to posting certain types of URLs, specifically SharePoint URLs, e.g., https://example.sharepoint.com/sites/exampledepartment/Shared%20Documents/Forms/AllItems.as[…]Personal%2Fvalidplease&viewid=3204ecd9-3360-499d-b8.
In light of this, I kindly request that you consider further relaxing the constraints of the regular expressions to accommodate URLs of this nature. I believe this change will significantly enhance our editors’ user experience and ease of work.
