A somewhat similar issue has been reported for v2.10.4. In this particular case link conversion results in two trailing "%253D" (another equivalent for a "=") being appended to the link id, for instance:

In both case, an encoded "=" symbol is appended, which would seem to point to a charset related issue that has possibly not been taken into account in the fix for [^]

These are charset settings for the system:

- phplist version: 2.10.4
- charset defined on configuration page: iso-8859-1
- charset in languages.php: "en" => array("English ", "iso-8859-1", "iso-8859-1, windows-1252 ")
- In config.php:
  - $language_module = ""; (with $strCharSet = iso-8859-1)
  - define("HTMLEMAIL_ENCODING","quoted-printable");
  - define("TEXTEMAIL_ENCODING",'7bit');
- Database encoding:
  - character_set_client utf8
  - character_set_connection utf8
  - character_set_database latin1
  - character_set_filesystem binary
  - character_set_results utf8
  - character_set_server latin1
  - character_set_system utf8
  - character_sets_dir /usr/share/mysql/charsets/

I don't think the %3D actually breaks anything. I have some links that even have it twice, but they work fine

Getting rid of them probably would involve cleaning before converting, but that's kind of cosmetic.

the = signs are caused by [^]

I tested and it is fine to strip them, the reverse decoding continues to work. So, I've done that.
