Can't view contributions for users whose names have plus signs
Closed, InvalidPublic


Author: jacinablackbox

When I go the user page of a user whose name contains "+", MediaWiki renders the userpage name with
a space instead of "+". There is no contributions link. Manually entering the user's name with "%
2B" instead of the plus sign, or entering the user's name verbatim, into the contributions page
(see URL) brings up an empty list.

This is most likely a local configuration issue with Apache mod_rewrite rules,
due to Apache's double-unescaping and broken escaping rules.
