In this Annotation edit I’ve wanted to use square brackets
I’ve followed the description under https://musicbrainz.org/doc/Annotation#Wiki_formatting
You may use the following wiki formatting in your annotations.
---- (for an horizontal rule)
= Title 1 =
== Title 2 ==
=== Title 3 ===
- (preceded by four spaces, at the start of a line) for bulleted list
Eight spaces (at the start of a line) for code
url or [url] or [url|description] for links (note the pipe “|”)
Note that anything else won’t work - especially not interwiki links, and not html markup.
As square brackets are used for hyperlinks, you have to use the encoded html equivalents (
[ for [ and
] for ]) if you don’t want them to be converted into hyperlinks. Example: If you want to use [unknown] in the annotation, you’ll have to write
In preview [Music] works fine. But all my tries submitting ended the same: with Music as hyperlink interpreted. What didn’t I get?
