Possible page title issue?

When I create a new page I use brackets [page name] to create a new page. In the past Confluence created a new page and copy pasted the page name into the new page. Is this changed?

Hi Tim,

you're right. Clicking such a link to a page that doesn't exist yet, opens "Add Page" without a page name. Same in my environment.

I didn't recognize that yet, because this is not my usual way to create a page. But unfortunately I can't give you a reason, why this behaviour has changed.

Older versions took your value of "page name" out of your braces and used it to pre-populate the new page when clicked (obviously, existing page names link to the existing page)

Within the same space Confluence page titles should be unique. It has been this way since the beginning :) https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONFSERVER-2524 

Mizan, this is not the issue I tried to report.
