URL Title with Slash Redirect

By tsangktsangk


Allows _template or ListPages variables like title which can hold slashes (e.g. Show/Hide content from specific users) to be used in NewPage url:
e.g. http://wikidot.com/test/edit/true/title/Re:Show/Hide content from specific users will change
http://wikidot.com/test/edit/true/title/Re:Show%2FHide content from specific users will change

    • Fixes unescaped percentage sign issue reported by rurwin below
    • Adopts the URL protocol supplied in the hash (rather than defaulting to http).
    • Adds a click-through link in case the Javascript-based redirect fails.
    • Fixes (round 2): script tag duplicated

If you want to make sure there's no session leakage in HTTPS, make sure you supply both URLs in HTTPS:

Code tested for Firefox and IE.
