Using of 'title' in createblogpost.action link - unexpected behavior of wiki

I was using the following link to let wiki users add some specific blog posts automatically marked by required label. (Examples are from my local test version)


Once users asked me if it possible to make Title of the post already filled in, I did not found any ways to do that in documentation, but found that if I use


then confluence will shoe new blog post page with alredy filled in title = TITLEZ.

Excellent! But…

I found that if space SPACENAMEX contains page (not blog) with page name TITLEZ then this link


provides me editing of page named TITLEZ instead of new blog post page.

Any idea how to fix it?

I fixed it with adding current date to blog post title like this:

#set ($linktoBlgPst = $config.getBaseUrl()+'/pages/createblogpost.action?spaceKey='+$space.getKey()+'&labelsString='+$LabelCodeParam+'&title='+$TitleValue+' '+$action.dateFormatter.format($content.currentDate) )

but it is not an answer ...
