#20363 closed Bug (duplicate)

urlize incorrectly includes quotation marks in links

Reported by: EmilStenstrom Owned by: nobody
Component: Template system Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords: urlize, quotes

>>> urlize("some text here \"\" and some text afterwards")
u'some text here <a href="mailto:""">""</a> and some text afterwards'

Note the extra quotes inside the links.

Luckily, this is solved quite easily, just do this:

>>> from django.utils import html
>>> html.TRAILING_PUNCTUATION += ['"', '\'']
>>> html.WRAPPING_PUNCTUATION += [('"', '"'), ('\'', '\'')]
>>> urlize("some text here \"\" and some text afterwards")
u'some text here "<a href=""></a>" and some text afterwards'

I suggest quotation marks are included in the *_PUNCTUATION variables in django.utils.html.
