In Typo3 6.1 adding an "addition link parameter" for an image in a tt_content element wont add the parameter to the link in the frontend.
Furthermore, characters like = " are parsed (but not rendered anyways).
Tried with
but nothing is added to the rendered link.

I need to add a rel="nofollow" to an image. I use in the Object Browser the additional parameter field. Nothing is added to the Link. = is encoded in %3D

I tried to add it in Typo3 4.5.32

The issue does still exist (TYPO3 6.2.12) and it does not only concern image links, but also the header_link .

For example use the Link-Wizard to create an external link for a header "Testheader" ...

URL: http://www.test.de/
Additional link parameters: rel="myrel" 
CSS-Class: testclass
Title: testtitle
Target: _blank

... and click "Set Link". This results in:

www.test.de/ _blank testclass testtitle rel="myrel" 

Unfortunately the "additional link parameters" are missing in the Frontend:

<h1><a href="http://www.test.de/" title="testtitle" target="_blank" class="testclass">Testheader</a></h1>

I close this one as a dublicate of the already closed https://forge.typo3.org/issues/55739.

The field was removed for TYPO3 7 with https://forge.typo3.org/issues/68328 but remains in TYPO3 6.2

Anyway it was never supposed to add new attributes to the HTML tag but to provide (GET-) parameter for the URL like ?q=searchword. This should however be achieved by simply adding to the URL of the link.

If you think that this is the wrong decision, then please join us on slack (https://forger.typo3.org/slack) with the issue number and an explanation or open a new ticket and add a relation to this ticket number.
