When submit a Chinese word search,Search.jsp doesn't display it correctly.
Change code 
from: String query = request.getParameter( "query");
to:String query = wiki.safeGetParameter( request, "query");
then search functionality can run right.


Good catch, thanks!

Looking at the current (2.4.100) source of Search.jsp it looks like this still isn't solved.

    // Get the search results
    Collection list = null;
    String query = request.getParameter( "query");
    String go    = request.getParameter("go");
It shouldn't take long to implement the suggested fix, is it ?

We have fixed this by explictly setting the request encoding in WikiJSPFilter.  So this should no longer be a problem.  Closing...

This actually didn't really solve the problem because setCharEncoding() doesn't affect
GET request parameters. One solution is to add METHOD="POST" when the backend generates
"<form ...>" or configure Tomcat (if you happen to use Tomcat), see [TomcatAndUTF8].
