I'm trying to create a page of links to various random generators. However, for the Donjon site, even though the links have the full url with the appropriate parameters in RW, it only sends the url without the parameters.

Examples:
Random Mundane Magic Tome has a url of http://donjon.bin.sh/5e/random/#type...e;rank=Mundane but it only passes http://donjon.bin.sh/5e/random/ to my browser

Random Male Dwarf Names has a url of http://donjon.bin.sh/fantasy/name/#t...ommon=Dwarvish Male but it only passes http://donjon.bin.sh/fantasy/name/ to my browser

Is there a way for RW to pass the rest of the url to the browser? I have no trouble with the Squid site which has urls like this: https://squid.org/rpg-random-generator?Table=male3

RW seems to handle correctly, in technical parlance, URI queries but not fragments.

I would assume this an issue with the render engine built into the controls.

Bummer. Working as intended wasn't the answer I wanted. But it makes sense.

I didn't say it was working as intended. Just that it may not be something the RW devs can fix.

I hope RW will become more flexible on the user entries.
The libaries that are being used have a lot of issues. I posted a summary of bugs with examples to support quite some while ago (on request actually).

No idea if the stuff got lost.

could you create one of those shortened links using something similar to the ones I see in some magazines? I think a lot of them start with bit.ly.../... or maybe it's bit.it/ url's and paste those into RW? might be a good workaround if the shortened link can hold all the parameters.

If the link would always be the same try this to get a short url
https://goo.gl/

Can't believe I didn't think of that.

Just tested this, works like a charm! (well, for my sample size of one ) Great idea guys.

Edit: tested with about 10 other links, all working as intended.

No worries about forgetting about shortened links kbs666. Sometimes a fresh or different perspective provides the solution... at least that's what I've found to be true.
