If a page title contains some characters, e.g. colon or parentheses, the URL changes from something understandable to the layman to something like "viewpage.action?pageId=" followed by a number. I was looking through the documentation to find a list of such characters - can you point me to such a list?
Hi @richardofrugeley ,
please take a look here https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-11285 to view list of these special characters.
Avoid using these special characters + % ? / \ & ; in any page title/name
Avoid ending a page title/name with any special characters.
Hope this helps,
I don't think there's any documentation from Atlassian regarding a full list on which characters are impacted, but I'm pretty sure it's roughly the list mentioned on this page.
Basically any special characters which has a specific meaning in URLs will cause the URL to be changed to the mentioned format. Simply because the browser would otherwise start interpreting the URL differently and your path would break.
Hope this helps.
