Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-03-07 12:25:39 UTC
Dear friends,

This is an analysis about the usage of the following templates:

As you can see at
the links for [[en:]], [[commons:]] etc. examples will fail.

PAGENAMEE will NOT work with Latin-1 characters in localurl.

== workaround ==

As described at
[[en:User talk:Patrick#question about localurl.2C PAGENAME.2C PAGENAMEE|en:User
talk:Patrick#question about localurl, PAGENAME, PAGENAMEE]]
[[en:User talk:Patrick#answer regarding localurl.2C PAGENAME.2C
PAGENAMEE|en:User talk:Patrick#answer regarding localurl, PAGENAME, PAGENAMEE]]

there is a workaround using PAGENAME. The question is if this is a bug and if
the workaround is stable.

Best regards Reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

Nowhere above do I see a description of the problem, or an actual example of a 
link which is said to be wrong and a description of what's wrong with it. None of 
the links I followed from the above links appeared to have anything wrong with 

Please provide this basic information and reopen the bug.

Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2005-03-08 02:02:44 UTC
Isolated problem to use of {{PAGENAMEE}} input to {{localurl:}}. Sample:

* {{localurl::Test2é}}
** ^ renders as a URL path, such as /rel1.4/index.php/Test2%C3%A9
* {{localurl::Test2%C3%A9}}
** ^ renders as raw source text

The reason for this is that {{localurl:}] expects a valid page title, and 
outputs the relative path to its view URL -- which is URL-escaped on 
output. By pre-escaping its input you are making an invalid page title, 
which is rejected.

You should use {{PAGENAME}} here., not {{PAGENAMEE}}.
Comment 5 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-11 04:05:31 UTC
This bug was a misunderstanding about what PAGENAMEE is.

Originaly I believed that the only difference to PAGENAME is that spaces are
replaced with underscores.

This is not the case. PAGENAMEE make a lot of character conversions and can be
used in the parameter part of localurl.

Best regards Reinhardt

just a test of rendering in MediaZilla

[[meta:Help:ĀāĆćĎďĒēĜĝĤĥĨĩĴĵĹĺŃń and PAGENAMEE]]

both should generate links to meta
