When a tag is used to provide content for a custom weblink and that tag contains characters such as ':' or '/', these characters are transformed into %3A and %2F, breaking it's functionality.

E.g. a tag containing:
https://rateyourmusic.com/artist/black-midi
will get transformed to
https%3A%2F%2Frateyourmusic.com%2Fartist%2Fblack-midi
rendering the link unusable.

Could these special characters be left as-is for this functionality?
