What's the solution for wiki formatting with #if ?[edit]

You describe the issue where MediaWiki wiki-formats the clauses inside #if, but you don't say how to solve it! I've got an #if template that needs to generate http links containing semicolons (mw:Template:git file), and it messes up, badly and almost randomly. Is there a solution? -- Skierpage (talk) 20:54, 21 September 2012 (UTC)

If it is just an address, using &#59; instead of ; will work. Or, if the link always contains git before the semicolon, try adding git inside of #if. — TAKASUGI Shinji (talk) 02:25, 25 January 2013 (UTC)
