[Wikimaps Warper] Problem with file names with an apostrophe character
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I had a problem with files with an apostrophe character like in File:Kiessling's_Kleiner_Verkehrsplan_1904.jpg. For such files in Wikimap Warper the rectify tab doesn't show anything. I had to change the file name in Wikimap Warper temporary and after the rectifying change it back to the old file name, cause otherwise the link from Commons won't work anymore.

Example: returns "500 Internal Server Error"

Folks - we are tracking tickets etc on GitHub currently

We use Phabricator for issues relating to the server / labs / WMF tech side of things but not for user bugs reporting.

We do of course welcome issues here too, but it could be better to post them to github to get proper attention from developers.

In the new year, as a result of the IEG Grant we will be addressing most of the bugs and adding new features too.

Yurik moved this task from Related to Tracking on the Maps board.

I believe this is fixed now, marking as resolved.
