Pages whose tittle has a '&' character problem

I'm using confluence 4.0

And when I try to create a page whose tittle has a '&' character, that page is rendered normally but the URL of those pages is something like "http://<server>/pages/viewpage.action?pageId=5636721" insted of the normal http://<server>/display/<space>/<page_name> .

Is this a known issue? Is it correctable? Does anybody knows how?

This is by design and afaik not configurable.

The whole issue is that the '&' character has special meaning in a URL. Therefore, Atlassian took it on the safe side to render the url for these pages by pageId. It happens to all pages with titles that give problems when the title is added to a URL.

This is still a feature request at the moment: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/CONF-11285. Feel free to cast a vote to increase the popularity of the feature request or add yourself as a watcher to be notified for the future updates.
