Appendix:Unsupported titles

Due to technical restrictions, some page names are not allowed on Wiktionary. Since Wiktionary uses the term being defined as the page name, there are thus some terms that cannot have their own entry. Some of these are collected here instead. (For more information on the technical restrictions, which are in the software that Wiktionary runs on, see the MediaWiki Handbook.)

When adding new entries with unsupported titles, update MediaWiki:UnsupportedTitles.js and Module:unsupported titles/data (the backend for Template:unsupported).

Unsupported symbolsEdit

Colons are permitted in page titles, but they are subject to exceptions. Initial colons are not permitted in page titles.

Unsupported lengthEdit

No page title may be longer than 255 bytes (not characters) in UTF-8 encoding.

Unsupported prefixEdit

Titles can't have a prefix (letters before a colon) that is a language code, a project code, or a namespace prefix (which would place it in the wrong namespace), including aliases. Prefixes are not case-sensitive.

Characters not in UnicodeEdit

  •   (cifrão)
  •   (old Israeli shekel)
  •   (pansexual)
  •   (trans-male)
