    umbracoUrlAlias can't have apostrophe?

    regular umbraco NiceUrls permit apostrophe, why not in an umbracoUrlAlias field?

    add apostrophe to umbracoUrlAlias and it won't work unless you remove it.

    Am i missing a trick?

    Hi Simon.

    As far as I can see it's not possible to include an apostrophe ( ' ) in the umbracoUrlAlias. But why would you want to do that? (Just curious :) )

    I think the thought about the umbracoUrlAlias is to give the customers a chance of creating some nice short url like "campaign2010", "spring", "tv" etc.

    And a nother thing. It's actually never a good thing to include a lot of special characters in the url. Characters like space, æ ,ø å, õ, ", ' etc. should, if possible, be removed from urls in my opinion, as the different browser can't alway figure out how to handle theese characters.

    Back to your question - I can't seem to get the umbracoUrlAlias working either when trying to include an apostrophe.

    And just to be clear, this answer is ment in a friendly and possitive way :)

    Maybe someone else have a good idea to why it's not possible to include apostrophes in the umbracoUrlAlias-property :)

    Thanks Kim,

    It just seemed odd considering regular NiceUrl of a node will include an apostrophe but you can't have the same functionality if you provide your own umbracoUrlAlias with an apostrophe.

    It's nothing major but i think it's an oversight
