      When including different characters in page names - like %, &, +, etc., the URL is generated differently.

      A usual URL (including the page name) looks like this: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/display/GS6/Welcome+to+GigaSpaces

      BUT if you add a character in the page name (for example, naming a page, C++), the URL would look like this: http://www.gigaspaces.com/wiki/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=36864161

      which is less nice-looking to say the least, and also then all URLs in the wiki aren't standard.

      Is it possible to change this?

      If it's been fixed in a future version, I'll be glad to know.

      Hi all,

      Thanks for all your votes and comments on this suggestion. I'm sorry we haven't provided you with an update in such a long time.

      We fully appreciate the frustration you must feel at Confluence lacking this feature, and completely understand the value it would provide to you.

      Right now however, it's not on our 12 month roadmap. This is because we're instead focusing our effort on several other high value features - for more context on this, take a read of the Community blog A renewed approach to highly voted Server suggestions for Jira and Confluence.

      We will however be revisiting this suggestion within the next 9 months - I'll ensure we provide an update.
