Description ais523 2007-02-09 18:45:24 UTC
(I don't think that this is a duplicate of bug 8367) It's possible to upload an image 
with a name like "Image:Test''Apostrophe.PNG", which contains two consecutive 
apostrophes. However, such an image is unusable because the parser treats the apostrophes 
like wikimarkup and doesn't include the image. (This actually came up in a helpme request 
on enwiki, so it isn't entirely theoretical, although I agree that using '' in the name 
of an image is just confusing.)
Comment 1 Niklas Laxström 2008-10-06 07:30:49 UTC
You can replace the apostrophes with html entities and it should work.
Comment 2 MZMcBride 2008-10-10 05:41:11 UTC
Reopening. There's likely a duplicate bug somewhere, though I can't find an earlier one at this moment. Comment 1 suggests a workaround, but this bug is not resolved.

Apostrophes shouldn't cause breakage in valid syntax.
Comment 3 Tushar Kapila 2009-09-01 23:24:29 UTC
it is difficult to post a link to article with even one apostrophe if you can get the text out of then will see a sample - big problem posting it in some sites like can we have a work around/ mirror address without the apostrophes so current links are valid and we have a alternate? or is the best answer to use a redirect - tiny url site?

Looks fixed with r68491 - the test case under the url works for me
