Long article names seem to choke the wiki.
« on: September 30, 2009, 08:24:48 pm »
For example:
http://glitchcity.info/wiki/index.php/Infinite_Sword_Glitch_%28The_Legend_of_Zelda:_Ocarina_of_time_and_Majora%27s_mask%29

Trying to edit that article makes the wiki choke and try to edit a page that does not exist.

No, it's the apostrophe in the article name.

Same reason why my name appears as GARY FDSFDSAFDASHFDSKFEH$#T%%$#%$%54342355465M 9 on the Wiki and the same reason Bill's Secret Garden uses a special apostrophe replacement.

Noting that is there any way the system could be changed to stop that happening? As wikis such as Bulbapedia have names with apostrophes which do not use that special character replacement. I've noticed it could be a pain as we cannot for example redirect 'M to GlitchDex/RB:000
Hi!

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

Fun times come and go, we may argue what is the point if nothing in this world is permanent; and all energy is believed to be subject to transformation. I guess in the temporary absence of it though, we value those times more and even though some things seem to be lost, they return in other forms.

You can, you just have to make the page and then move it  to 'M

Actually, I just made `M, so all it needs done is to be approved and moved

It won't let me see it; when I search for 'M it uses the special replacment characters and when I change the link to include 'M instead it just takes me back to the main page.

Edit: Oh never mind; it had ` in the title my keyboard doesn't include that for some reason; just '
Edit2: Redirected 'M to GlitchDex/RB:000
Edit3: Redirected M to GlitchDex/RB:000

I don't know much about many scripts in general but if ' or ` acts as a function in the script for our wiki then perhaps it will take the name as invalid? Or perhaps as a result of  the system putting a % in the name as a special replacement makes the title invalid.
