Don't use "&" (ampersand) in Wiki page names

Postby kentsmith9 » Tue Feb 04, 2014 5:12 pm

Using the "&" (ampersand) in a Wiki page name causes display problems that look confusing to non-technical users who don't understand the escape character format. For that reason we should only use "and" in page titles.

If any current pages use "&" they can easily be renamed to use "and" with the page move feature. That will automatically create a redirect from the old name to the new name fixing the display issue.
