I just found an issue where I am trying to use the Facebox (overlay) plugin and dynamically build the link to get the overlay. everything works fine:

<a href="#listing-overlay{$ID}" rel="facebox">$Name</a>

except the pound sign '#' in the href is being replaced with the entire URL. Does SilverStripe do some kind of replacement behind the scenes with the pound a reserved word...and I am not aware?

the link ends up like this:[Office]=Office#listing-overlay9

when it should be like this:

have you tried something like?

<a href="$Link#listing-overlay{$ID}" rel="facebox">$Name</a>

<a href="$BaseLink#listing-overlay{$ID}" rel="facebox">$Name</a>
