Hello. FixURL provides a [%2] button in the edit toolbar to encode special 
characters like parentheses and quotes in link addresses, and avoid incorrect 
interpretation by PmWiki:


While editing the page, select a URL address containing special characters and 
press the [%2] button. This will encode the special characters. 

For example, select the address which is not correctly handled by PmWiki:
  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiki (disambiguation)

press the button, and the address changes to:

The second address works both in PmWiki and in all browsers and points to the 
same external page.
