Hi Everyone. I wasn't able to find this in these discussions, but here is the issue I am facing. I created a custom content type with a Link Field.

This link field will accept the following values:
/page
or
http://www.site.com/page
or
http://www.site.com/page?foo=bar
or
http://www.site.com/page#target

But will not accept these values, and give a validation error:
/page?foo=bar
or
/page#target

Is this behavior for a reason? Is there any way around this without touching the code or switching it to a normal text field? (I'm a purely front end user on this project).
