Wrong URLs when using a dot at the end of the competition title
When someone upload a new competition photo and he/she put in a title with the last character a dot '.', the url when clicked on the uploaded image breaks, 404 page error.
Thank you for report. It is some kind of a bug in Joomla routing
To fix it remove the dot from Allowed Symbols in Options > Transliteration tab. We will make it as the default option for this param.
Thanks for the quick reply. I did what you suggested and the url is not broken anymore. Accept the url is now '8-', so the parcing is not ok I think.
So the title is empty? I mean it only has the dot and nothing more?
Ah Well I think we should restrict the creation of title with prohibited symbols only. Some normal symbol should be obligate in the title.
Or another way is not to display '-' if title contains only prohibited symbols...
The problem of the wrong url was a problem of mis configuration from my site.
I removed from setting 'Allowed Symbols' the dot, but forgot to remove the vertical slash
Now people can enter dots in the title and the url is well formed.
Actually I have replicated the problem on my testing server, so decided to fix it for the next version - URL will not display '-' if the title contains only prohibited symbols. So only participant ID will be displayed.
