I've got some links from

[[School of Mathematics & Statistics Computing Centre]] 



that don't show up in a list of backlinks. I suspect this is because of the spaces, but it could be because of the & or lowercase 'o' in of.

this is horribly complicated :/ The existing backlinks search uses a regex, that assumes a-z0-9 topic names.

Paul was working on much cleverness, but there's more needed.

see templates/backlinks.tmpl

(and I tried using NAMEFILTER ~~ [\\\s*?~^$@%`"'&|<:;>\[\]#\x00-\x1f] and failed.

using (.*?) will work, but it will also match many things it shoudln't

mmm, I might just punt to using [^A-Za-z0-9]*? - that will be somewhat consistent and has a much better chance of showing all backlinks

Paul, please can you comment on my madness?

I refer the honourable gentleman to the feature request I just raised: AddBacklinksToQuery

In an ideal world... never mind. Sven's change is good enough, I think. In another ideal world, somebody should make an autotestcase smile
