    Hi,

     

    I put a twitter sharing button in my auto-responder email. In my twitter text, there is a Bitly link to a page of our website. Unfortunately, the colon in the link after http disappears in Jotform and the link is no valid anymore.

    Here is my Jotform form : http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40994002529960

    If you sign in, you receive an auto responder mail with the twitter button at the bottom. The twitter link is : "https://twitter.com/intent/tweet?text=Fa%C3%AEtes%20comme%20moi%2C%20abonnez%20vous%20%C3%A0%20la%20newsletter%20@TidyBooksFrance%20et%20recevez%20concours%2C%20id%C3%A9es%20de%20lecture%20et%2010%25%20de%20remise%20http//bit.ly/QWzQOX&source=webclienttarget"

    I still have 2 spaces left but impossible to add ":" in the bitly link which should be http://bit.ly/QWzQOX

    Do you know how to solve this problem and where it comes from?

    Hope it's clear enough

    Thanks in advance

    Hi,

    Thank you very much, it works perfectly !

    I am surprised as I set up that twitter button severval times in the past and never had to encode a colon character in a link.

    Thanks again for your help !
