I suspect this is a bug regarding proper sanitization against "%" signs in strings.

Same thing when searching for e.g. 100%

Ohh thats a bad bug with an easy fix...

Should also verify other special characters.

Also add unit tests to prevent regressions on non-alphanumeric characters.

@huayu0723 are you working on this? just verifying that it wasn't an accidental claim as it wasn't in the "Doing" column. Thanks!

@JoeWalsh Yes. Next time I'll remember to move it to the "Doing column at the same time. Thanks for pointing it out.

@Fjalapeno Shall I test the fix myself or should someone else?

@huayu0723 we'll write up testing criteria and get it tested. We just are working on a hotfix right now.

Thanks again for picking this up

Clear. Thank you for your reply.

To test:

  1. Search for "99% Invisible"
  2. Verify search result is displayed properly with the title "99% Invisible"

Testing on iPhone with iOS 9.3.2 and Wikipedia app 5.0.5 (881.1). The issue is still there as shown in the photo below.

Hey @Nicholas.tsg per our conversation, this fix was not included in the 5.0.5 (881.1) version. I will let you know when you can retest on a newer build. Sorry for the confusion.

Hi @Nicholas.tsg you should see 884 in TestFlight soon. Please re-test with that build.

Update: Testing on Wikipedia app 5.0.5 (884) on iOS 9.3.2 iPhone. It's fixed now as the article title "99% Invisible" is displayed on the article search result.
