Problems uploading files with apostrophes & equals signs

  Liteman 16:39 26 Dec 2013

Our camera club organises an annual international photo exhibition where the entrants upload their images to our website. We have had one or two problems where entrants have received Error 404 messages when trying to upload images and their system has crashed out. In each case it has transpired that the problem has been caused by apostrophes or equals signs being included in the file names, once removed the uploads have completed OK. Needless to say, we have now put into the rules the instruction that ' and = should not be used in file names. Does anyone know why these two characters should cause this problem so that we can explain it to those who refuse to read rules, but complain when things go wrong?
