Spaces are not removed from filenames, this leads to broken links when done in Wiki style.

I am using TopicInteractionPlugin 3.51, Foswiki 1.1.9. If someone uploads a file which has spaces in its name, the spaces are NOT removed from the name, as it used to be. Though it gets rendered correctly. In 'Edit Wiki Text' mode one can write something like


However, if one opens this page in WYSIWYG editing and just save it, the link gets broken to something like


Could one have a possibility to switch On/Off space conversion? Or just re-enable the conversion in the plugin?

Thisi is an issue with Wysiwyg Editor I think TopicInteractionPlugin has added a feature that Wysiwyg can't support. We are not very good with handling names with embedded spaces in general. I didn't see any open tasks in WysiwygPlugin , so please open a task if you could. Thanks

I did. However, as you say - foswiki might not be very good with handling names with embedded spaces in general - points for me towards having the conversion, which removes spaces. At least to have it 'configurable' in the TopicInteractionPlugin.

There already is a configure option for the core:

$Foswiki::cfg{NameFilter} = qr/[\*?~^\$@%`"'&;|<>\[\]#\x00-\x1f]/;

... which removes \s from the default.

Sorry, does not help. Neither

If TopicInteractionPlugin is switched off, independen of '\s' present or not, files are renamed, i.e. spaces are replaced with '_'.

Sorry, as I need a solution quite urgent, quick and dirty solution:

  1. go to lib/Foswiki/Plugins/TopicInteractionPlugin
  2. find, function sub sanitizeAttachmentName
  3. add $fileName =~ s/\s+/_/g; (I did it before "Get rid of a subset of Namefilter")
now spaces in filenames are removed with "_" sign in TopicInteractionPlugin.
