How do get site search working when I have a special charcter in the search parameter?

I am currently having issues setting up my site search in Piwik. I think that it is due to the fact that I have special characters in my search parameters. The way our seach parameters are structured are as follows:


Thinking that it is using RegEx to parse out the keyword I tried escaping the [ with a \ and that did not work. This seems to work fine for Google Analytics, and I would rather not have to change the way that we are passing this search parameter. Can some please help??
