Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-11-07 12:16:42 UTC

Sorry for this!

I received a "You have a new message" because GerardM created with *lowercase* starting *g*

However points to with *upercase* starting *G*

MediaWiki should take care of this.

Thanks for all your efforts.

Regards reinhardt [[user:gangleri]]

P.S. Should there be  a tracking bug for case sensitive issues?

P.S. A site effect. If I edit that page ( ) I get "You have a new
message" . This normaly does not happen if you write to your *own* talk page.

Comment 7 Chad H. 2009-10-09 12:56:00 UTC
This is now possible with r57558. By configuring $wgCapitalLinks = false; and $wgCapitalLinkOverrides[NS_USER] = true, you can limit user namespace pages to capital-only.
