|categorymatch=Test'd funk

This doesn't find Muha Test 2. While category= does.

|category=Test'd funk

Another one

|categorymatch=Cat d'Test


The problem is not the apostrophe but the space char. Replace it by an underscore! I will add a bugfix which automatically replaces spaces by underscores in catgeorymatch ...

I know the underscore problem and it doesn't help. See (cl0.cl_to LIKE '%\'d_%') this is what causes me problems. This is the problem I have. I use a template on all cats that check the for images used on category={{PAGENAME}}. This works fine for all cats I've checked so far just not for "Café d'Anvers". But it would work if I use "category=Café d'Anvers" directly. Do you a workaround to make it work for all kind of cat names using {{PAGENAME}}? --Subfader 12:12, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Resolved in DPL 1.8.7.
Mediawiki expands special chars within PAGENAME to html entities and ther & misleads tDPL to take the & as an AND operator.
I added a statement to decode html entities and now it seems to work as expected. Gero 16:12, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Oh great. I was waiting for an update. You rock. --Subfader 18:51, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
Is there a workaround to use pagename in an older version and to replace the ' and & with e.g. some regex? I can't upgrade onthe server because of the non working totalpages. --Subfader 21:53, 2 August 2009 (UTC)
