Description jacinablackbox 2007-05-07 22:43:06 UTC
When I go the user page of a user whose name contains "+", MediaWiki renders the userpage name with 
a space instead of "+". There is no contributions link. Manually entering the user's name with "%
2B" instead of the plus sign, or entering the user's name verbatim, into the contributions page 
(see URL) brings up an empty list.

Seems to be solved in 1.10.
Comment 2 Brion Vibber 2007-05-08 17:19:22 UTC
This is most likely a local configuration issue with Apache mod_rewrite rules,
due to Apache's double-unescaping and broken escaping rules.
