      Description

      By default the Tomcat configuration doesn’t allow the characters “/” and " \ " in the page name , which leads to inaccessible pages in XWiki.
      "Page not found! " message is displayed and the page can’t be rename without a script.
      This issue is very often encountered and the vast majority of use cases don’t require “/” or " \ " in page names (not page title) . This behavior does more harm than good.
      The usage of “/” or " \ " characters in page names at Creation/ Rename shouldn't be allowed.

      The community opinion can be discussed on the forum : https://forum.xwiki.org/t/prevent-creation-of-pages-with-and-in-the-name/5852
