Description Danny B. 2007-11-14 05:28:05 UTC
The following syntaxes render as link to /sub instead of /sub/

* [[/sub/]]
* [[/sub/|]]
* [[/sub/|sub]]
Comment 1 Matěj Grabovský 2011-06-26 18:18:58 UTC
Should we allow (sub)pages with empty name, though?

In my opinion, we should just normalize the absolute links to trim the slash as well and disallow such pages altogether.
Comment 2 db [inactive,noenotif] 2012-10-27 14:26:57 UTC
This is like that linking feature is designed.
In Linker::normalizeSubpageLink you find the comment

 / at end means we don't want the slash to be shown

At that is done, so this bug is INVALID.
