Wiki pages with Numbers in the title won't link!

edited November 2011 in Campaign Portal Building
Hi guys

I'm having a bit of a technical problem.

I can't seem to link a wiki page (using the standard buttons in the editor) to any page named with numbers in it.

I have 3 journal entries called; Blood Simple, Blood Simple V.2 & Blood Simple V.3

The code looks like this

Session 30 Authors: [[Blood Simple | Arribacca]] [[Blood Simple V.2 | Manco]] [[Blood Simple V.3 | Tyr]]

And comes up as

Session 30 Authors: Arribacca [[Blood Simple V.2 | Manco]] [[Blood Simple V.3 | Tyr]]

The first page is fine, the 2nd and third don't work and view as the native code on the final page...

I've had this issue with other pages, anytime I 'number' them- Part '1' etc...

Here's the actual page (my home page) entry is at the bottom.

Any ideas what i'm doing wrong?

Thanks guys...

    "Version 3 Page": should link as Blood Simple V3, with no period. Same with V2. If that does not work pm me and I will give you the work around.
    Nice site, by the way!! Added to my faves. Would move the log tracking to a wiki page, but looks like a lot of fun!!!

    Thanks Killervp, that was right, no fullstops with numbers!

    Specifically, if you look at the URL of the page, you'll notice that at the end it's "blood-simple-v3" with no period between the 'v' and the 3. That's why he told you not to use a period. So by looking at the URL you can see what your page is coming up as.

    Or at least I thought that's how it worked, until I just made a bunch of test pages to make sure that was true and none of them worked... :P

    So now killer, if you'd be so kind, I'd kinda like to know the fix...
