According to http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/UploadsAdmin#restrictinguploadedfiles
, it appears to be a feature: "the name must begin and end with a
letter or digit."
While I understand the reason why special characters are not allowed
in some circumstances, I do not see why underscores have to be treated
as special characters, especially in PmWiki page names and in files
Does someone have a valid reason to maintain that ? If not, couldn't
we have the underscore accepted as a regular character, at least in
those two contexts ?
