I've set up a wiki about programming.
When I write, for example, [[C++]] as link, this don't give me a correct link. Is
this a bug or there is a solution?
Neither. Article names containing certain characters are not allowed,
because they would be misinterpretted by the server and/or browser,
potential leading to bugs or even security breaches. +, for instance,
is used in URLs to represent a space, so the URL "...path/to/wiki/C++"
would be interprettes as "...path/to/wiki/C"
The English Wikipedia uses the name [[C Plus Plus]] for its article on
the language, and adds a template explaining that this is not the
"correct" title. See
which includes a list of disallowed characters.
