Set this to false to avoid forcing the first letter of page titles (including included pages, images and categories) to capitals. WARNING: may break links! This makes links COMPLETELY case-sensitive. Links appearing with a capital at the beginning of a sentence will not go to the same place as links in the middle of a sentence using a lowercase initial; typically the former has to become a link with a separate display title (e.g. [[Page|page]]). After setting this to false, run cleanupCaps.php to fix the existing links that will be broken.
This settings affects all namespaces
, (and as of 1.16) MediaWiki and User. In versions before 1.16, it affects the MediaWiki namespace, but remember that MediaWiki only recognizes pages in upper case
. So if you for example edit "MediaWiki:sidebar" you will see nothing has changed, but editing "MediaWiki:Sidebar" works normally.
