You can reproduce it eg using this HTML

<a target="_blank"  href="https://foo.bar/wp-content/plugins/test.php?api_user_id=123455&dlkey=49849494&content_type=application/pdf">PDF</a>
<a target="_blank"  href="https://foo.bar/wp-content/plugins/test.php?api_user_id=123455&amp;dlkey=49849494&amp;content_type=application/pdf">PDF</a>

resulting in a false link in visitor log (reports itself seem to be fine)


instead of


Quick test shows the tracker might send the correct value, but might be some escaping issue.

It's not related to any segmenting or so.

there's more insights here https://wordpress.org/support/topic/some-user-facing-logs-have-a-url-encoding-issue-for-ampersands-in-links/

Basically, it seems to work in Downloads reports but not in Visits log and real time widget meaning it is likely indeed an escaping issue.
