    Fix what? Link works fine for me. Sometimes Nitter doesn’t load though, hit refresh a few times and you’ll get it.

        Ah right I see. Surely that’s the app developer’s responsibility to fix?

            I mean sure, but that’s a bit more involved than just pasting a link with no code and having the renderer make a link, which lemmy is supposed to do. The app is failing to meet the lemmy spec, the developer should fix that.

              So, it’s actually more a Lemmy bug. Lemmy stores the comments just fine but the API displays it with markdown. The double underscore is screwing up other apps abilities to display it and there’s really no way to avoid that. A third party app can’t tell if it’s supposed to be interpreted or not.

              So on Lemmy, all the URLs look fine. On Kbin or any other apps, they’ll all get cut off after the first underscore.

                and there’s really no way to avoid that.

                Yes there is, the way lemmy avoids it. _ might be usable as a tag in mark down, but it shouldn’t be used to break out of a URL.

                This is definitely a kbin bug lol. Edit: not kbin, but whichever app people are browsing with. Both lemmy and kbin websites work.

                  Lemmy avoids it by having the source content and then translating output to markdown. Any third party reader needs to sanitize that output.

                  Lemmy basically does not output safe content for third parties. It’s absolutely a Lemmy bug from any developer’s perspective.

                    I’ve just checked on kbin and the link works just fine. Kbin doesn’t display the full link, but when you click it on the website it works.

                    Are you using an app to browse kbin? In that case it’s your app that’s not doing it correctly. Possibly kbin doesn’t give it the infomration, or maybe it just reads the text of the link and misuses that.

                    Either way, the problem is nothing to do with lemmy. However lemmy apps have their own little bugs to work out (eg instance agnostic links from v0.18) so we’re all in the same boat of fedeverse development.
