The simpler media website CMS
Despite the warning (I like risk...), I have updated my web site from 1.5.9 to 1.6a from the support branch.
Since, all images that have a special character or a space in file path is not found anymore. It used to work fine

Real file path is 2020-2029/2021/Vie%20quotidienne/
It seems that it is related to the function sanitize_path that has been modified. Is there a way to fix that? Is there a new parameter in the backend in 1.6?
Yes, that function was modified, read about why here please:
It might not be perfect yet, which is why it is a alpha version :-)
Generally I strongely recommend not to use any special chars or spaces within folder/filenames because it can cause all kind of trouble.
We may make cleaned folder/filenames mandatory at some point if uploading from the backend as currently it is a plugin doing this. This is what most CMS do as well.
We have decided to revert our actually more secure change to avoid this behaviour. Still it is a good idea to seocleanup folder and filenames.
Yes, thanks. It solves the problem ;-)
I will keep as long as I can my naming friendly readable (including spaces and accents etc) as it is a mirror of my source repository exported by LightRoom.
I will check in the future if I can sanitize it when exporting it.
Always keep in mind that the name (= URL) and the title (= website) are independent.
