Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-06 20:40:10 UTC
Agent: IE: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR


Create a user name with RTL characters only.
Between the links for your user page and for your talk page there will be no space.

Best regards [[user:gangleri]]

Comment 3 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-19 15:08:25 UTC
changed to *WORKSFORME*

I tried usernames containing RTL characters both with and without spaces inbetween.
I could not reproduce the error neiter at FiverAlpha (
) Nor at [[:en:]]

tried both:
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.12) Gecko/20050915
and *Netscape*
Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20051012

Reopened after tests with different usernames. See very special usernames at .

*note* IE seem to work fine.

Comment 8 Robin Pepermans (SPQRobin) 2011-07-07 21:51:11 UTC
Adding "testme" keyword, as this is years ago and the test wiki no longer exists.
Comment 9 Rotem Liss 2011-08-02 08:00:49 UTC
Seems to work now, with the same user name, English interface, both Monobook and Vector, both IE 9 and Firefox. Marking WORKSFORME.
