Wrong links when installing in subdirectory =

I just found that WordPress is giving me wrong links after I installed my WordPress installation into subdirectory "=" (../=/wp-admin)

When I select Plugins option from left menu, it displays the Plugins, but the links from left menu lose the "=" .

Also the structure of the link in address bar changes.


I don't know if it posses any risks, but it's still a bug.

I can give access for a developer to see the website.

Thank you

Hi @BogdanStorm, welcome to WordPress Trac! Thanks for the report.

= is a reserved character that has special meaning in a URI in certain contexts, so using it in a directory name seems like an edge case.

Still this use of this character saves me from big problems. Even using "?" saves me from big troubles, specially that Wordpress is using it frequently.

Thank you and I will get back in prehistoric era and use a standard directory name like "wordpress".
