How do you create a page title with the / (slash) character in the name without it becoming a sub page ? i.e. example 2/21 actualy creates the subpage /21 of example 2 or is the only alternative to use the form example 2-21 instead and create redirects from the subpage ? - 17:37, March 27, 2012 (UTC)

Why do you need pages with "/" in the name? Just curious. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 27 Mar 2012 4:51 PM Pacific

You can try using the fullwidth forms
example 2/21 example 2/21 "/" ff0f
example 2\21 example 2\21 "\" ff3c
example 2?21 example 2?21 "?" ff1f
example 2=21 example 2=21 "=" ff1d
example 2&21 example 2&21 "&" ff06
example 2~21 example 2~21 "~" ff5e

Thanks I'll try them - 11:53, March 28, 2012 (UTC)
I'm not too sure that's a good idea. It would make it impossible to search for the pages, and noone would be able to type their urls directly.    ǝsʞpɐןǝ  (message wall)  15:04, 29/03/2012
For keyword searches and Google it should be fine. Special:Search hardly works anyway, so it won't be a great loss until Wikia can get it to work consistently. -- Fandyllic (talk · contr) 29 Mar 2012 12:01 PM Pacific
