Overpass Turbo preview card causes corruption of query from misinterptation of whitespace or tabs

What and who is affected by this issue/request?

Overpass Turbo users. Basically everyone that needs to check OSM data.

Where on the platform does it happen?

Draft comment preview, and the rendered sent comments. Can it even be disabled, or changed to inline title preview?

How do we replicate the issue?


Long link:


Redundant plus signs are added. This prevents queries from being run.
I don’t know whether it is caused by misencoding in percent-coding.
Workaround is to not use links on their own line, preventing the preview card from appearing. overpass turbo overpass turbo

Expected behavior (i.e. solution)

  • Short link: Not expanding to a wrong link
  • Long link: Not changing the link

Other Comments

Maybe it is also a problem from the Overpass Turbo side. But best fixed here first.
