Wikimedia has migrated from Bugzilla to Phabricator. Bug reports should be created and updated in Wikimedia Phabricator instead. Please create an account in Phabricator and add your Bugzilla email address to it.
Wikimedia Bugzilla is read-only. If you try to edit or create any bug report in Bugzilla you will be shown an intentional error message.

Description Lupo 2009-03-30 21:24:09 UTC
Go to the re-upload form for file [[File:Insigne de l'ETAP.jpg]] on the Commons:

The XHTML is invalid, it contains

<input tabindex='2' type='hidden' name='wpDestFile' id='wpDestFile' 
value='Insigne_de_l'ETAP.jpg' /><tt>Insigne_de_l'ETAP.jpg</tt>

'Insigne_de_l'ETAP.jpg' is not a valid string.

As a result, you cannot upload a file, the server will always respond
"The file has no extension (like ".jpg")." (At least in Firefox, because
FF passes "Insigne_de_l" as the value and ignores the rest.)

Somehow, the single quote in the file name does not get escaped.

Comment 3 Gregor Hagedorn 2009-04-18 12:15:39 UTC
As of today, commons is working with r48811. Can commons be updated to r49051? In practice, the bug is NOT resolved, because the resolution is not available.
Comment 4 Niklas Laxström 2009-04-18 12:28:44 UTC
The common practise is to mark bugs as resolved when the fix is applied. This does not mean that Wikimedia Foundation has or has not updated their code. Those updates usually take weeks, except for some things which are updated out-of-cycle.
