what characters are NOT ALLOWED in tikiwiki pagenames

posts: 55

Hello everyone,

What characters are NOT ALLOWED in page names, e.g. is "Help! How do I ..." a valid page name or is "Personal Digital Assistant (PDA)" valid?

@#$%^&*()_-=|\/?><


It appears that people can create pages with some special characters but they might cause other things to break e.g. renaming the page.

Yes some characters are forbidden for security reasons - some others can be bugged too ... I don't know why these characters were forbidden. Need to ask mose . It is delicate to change the security check
If you want you can change the list in :
tiki-setup_base.php

Image
$patterns['string']  = "/^[^\";#]*$/"; // find, and such extended chars
$vartype['page'] = 'string';

Better to look in the code for the real list - another bug

These characters give back an "invalid varaible value"
Other ones can be bugged. It will be interesting to establish the list.
