#4138: Possible BUG - Create new forum topic not functioning with periods in end
of title field
 Reporter:  chr313        |      Owner:
     Type:  defect (bug)  |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal        |  Milestone:  Awaiting Review
Component:  Forums        |    Version:
 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 When creating a new topic titled "I am having an issue trying to find a
 specific Brand…" the next page says "page cannot be found". After going
 back to the topics page I can see the topic created but cannot get to the
 topic as it still shows "page cannot be found" when I click the topic
 name. I can see that the url has the "…" in the permalink slug, but this
 did not happen in older versions of buddypress (1.2.9). I could create the
 same topic title in the older version and it would be ok and trim the "…"
 out of the url/permalink.

 I thought it was any special character but it seems it only happens with
 the 3 periods. It happens every time I try to post.

 Solutions nor possible bugs were on the support forum about this issue.
