I'm wanting to use the QuickLinks plugin to help users navigate to Places, Connections, Blog Posts, Documents, and Bookmarks.
However, the links to blog posts and documents do not work for all users. The link to blog posts is essentially a filtered content tab - narrowed down by authored and content type.
In the admin console, the "my blog posts" URL in quicklinks contains the mark-up for the "[" and "]" characters, which is "%5B" and "%5D" respectively. Regardless of the method used in the admin console, neither the actual characters or the markup for the characters makes it's way to the live site. For example in the admin console, we can have a URL that contains "objecttype=%5Bblogposts%5D", but when we try using the links, the URL drops the markup for the square brackets, so we end up with "objecttype=blogposts".
Has anyone else run into this issue with QuickLinks? Jive Developers
What version of Jive are you on? If you are on an older version, not Jive7... this may help you:
You have to have the most updated version of the quicklinks file, as Ryan updated it to fix the special character issue.
Also, read thru the comments, there are similar situations that Ryan response to.
