  • Advanced item In the AbuseFilter extension, the rmspecials() function has been updated so that it does not remove the “space” character. Wikis are advised to wrap all the uses of rmspecials() with rmwhitespace() wherever necessary to keep filters’ behavior unchanged. You can use the search function on Special:AbuseFilter to locate its usage. [2]
