[phpBB3] Posts with a Period have an issue?

I have a few posts that use "." (period) in the subject line.

The interesting part is that some work just fine like this one: ... 55942.html

But others don't like this one: (you will get not found error if you click it but it exists - I can see it from the forum listing page here: ... -7260.html or here: ... -7290.html (if there are more posts, then pages may have shifted. You may want to look at the next page)

So far I have found only 3 posts like these on my forum with 60K+ pages. I can get into the post using a moderator control panel but that's the only way I can view them. I tried changing the title of the first post but that did not help. Any suggestions - i am happy to change them manually if needs to be done.

Any suggestions?

I don't think it is caused by MSU. Please temporary comment out installation line in common.php file (it disables MSU) and than access the topic via old URI and let me know how it works.

Thank you!
I will try it out. With 3 pages out of 60K - not a huge deal. I thought maybe this was already brought up or there was an easy solution.

One option I have is to create a new topic from the Moderator panel and rename it - saves the post but the URL will still be 404 if it is referenced anywhere....

Will give it a try one of these days.

I made some further tests and it is definitely not an MSU issue. It looks like a problem with a phpBB3 MOD.
