URL-escaped version of {{PAGENAME}}
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: poccil

Previously I asked for an escaped version of
PAGENAME and came back with one that escaped spaces
to underscores. That's not exactly what I wanted.
What I wanted was a variable that escaped the name
of a page as though it were a URL. For example:

Page name =>  Page%20name

I would prefer that such a variable be named

What is the difference between an underscore and a %20 for a URL to a wiki page?

What is the difference between an underscore and a %20 for

a URL to a wiki page?

The difference is manifested when one wants to use the
variable to express a search phrase as an external link to a
search engine. For example, Google will not parse the name
Page_name in the same way as it would parse Page%20name.

Template:Google is often used with a parameter other than the page
title, so a generalized {{urlescape:text}} would be useful.

This is possible by typing {{PAGENAMEE}} now! Thus I
