Description Sherool 2005-12-04 19:22:50 UTC
I was adding a link to [[M*A*S*H (TV series)]] to a list of TV series and I tried using the "pipe trick" like so: 
[[M*A*S*H (TV series)|]]

But it didn't work, the link was broken and rednered at plain text, brackets, pipe and all. I asume the asterisks 
in the tile is what is causing the problem.

Manualy typing the "title" of the link like so: [[M*A*S*H (TV series)|M*A*S*H]] works perfectly though, so it's a 
very trivial problem.

This is on the English Wikipedia, not sure what version it's running, 1.5 something IIRC.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-12-05 07:45:15 UTC
The pre-save transform which does this had a separate, out-of-date copy of the legal 
title characters list. I've changed it to use the master copy in $wgLegalTitleChars, 
which seems to work.
