Is ti possible to change Hashtag (#) in url link?


we are testing/checking Simple wiki add-on before buying and we have one question: is it possible to change Hashtag in Add-on's url with any different symbol?

How it looks:

Problem is that in Wikipedia with that same Hashtag (#) are separating different paragraphs, not pages or projects: , so we problems with urls with #.

Hi Sarunas,

at the moment, the hashtag is used for routing within the app,(something that's common in apps that have multiple sub-screens). Thus it the hash mark is required.

We are aware however that this causes an issue when you're trying to create links within the page. For example, when trying to create a table of contents.  Let me take a look and see if there is an alternative we can come up with. I will get back to you soon.

This is quite important, you could use History API as a workaround, it is well-supported today: Another option would be to avoid client-side routing and to load pages on server-side (which would probably be more in line with how JIRA works).

Maybe there are any news about this question or sulution?
