      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

      Suggestion to avoid displaying the page ID in URL (Tested and verified in Confluence 6.5.1)

      • Avoid using these special characters + % ? / \ & ; in any page title/name
      • Avoid ending a page title/name with any special characters.
        • Example of ending a page title/name with special characters:
        • Example of ending a page title/name without special characters:
