      Description

      Hi,

      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.

      Thanks,

      Limor

            A long, long time I ago, I voted for this issue and now keep getting emails even though I'm not interested in this anymore.

            Is it possible that Jira still doesn't have an "unsubscribe" task notification command? Or if it does, has it somewhere buried deep inside the complex nav structure?

            In any case, I'd kindly ask an admin to unsubscribe me.

            Please note that this issue also impacts the use of certain macros such as the Task Report macro. When a page in which the task resides has a symbol (such as parentheses or ampersands) in the title, the link from the Task Report does not work but opens a Page Not Found error. When you remove the symbol from the page title, the link in the report will work again. I have come across this issue with other macros as well.

            An official update on this from Atlassian would be strongly appreciated.

            Why can't you just replace URL Reserverd characters with a dash?

            Hello,

            I have an issue with these link behavior.
            When you export a space with these kind of links, and import the space in another Confluence instance, then the internal links using the pageId are all broken. This is strange as in storage format we can clearly see the page title, and a page with the same page title has also be imported. So the internal space link should be still valid.

            An update on the way the links are handled will greatly increase confluence usability.

            Best regards
            Colin
