Unable to use URL for space with comma.

I get error trying to give "WikiTree ID/URL if this relates to a person or free-space profile:" using value:

Space:Fauquier_County%2C_Virginia

That WikiTree Space Profile does not exist (Space:Fauquier_County%2C_Virginia)

Workaround is use convert to a comma:

Space:Fauquier_County,_Virginia

Can we add functionality to accept the URL encodings, such as for a comma?

If the purpose is to use the name of the space for attaching it to an image neither
Space:Fauquier_County%2C_Virginia
nor
Space:Fauquier_County,_Virginia
will work.

At least it never does for me.
Yes, just tried that.  Looks like it takes a list of IDs, eg Smith-123, Smith-456, Jones-27, so you don't have to enter them one at a time.  So a space page with a comma in it looks like two items.

But I think William is talking about the page-link box in the G2G Compose widget.
@RJ Horace, Yes, I'm referring to the page-link box in the G2G Compose widget.  This question is linked to the Space, so I was able to successfully link it, just had to replace the %2C with a comma.
