If you use _oldhiddenwebname.topicname links e.g. to INCLUDE fancy searches in other webs and want to rename _oldhiddenwebname to _newhiddenwebname or Newwebname all the _oldhiddenwebname.topicname links get replaced by _newhiddenwebname resp. Newwebname WITHOUT the .topicname part thus destroying links.

I used the following construct:

%INCLUDE{"_oldhiddenwebname.topicname" parametername="parametervalue"}%
in multiple topics of several webs.

Then I renamed _oldhiddenwebname to "_newhiddenwebname.

The result was:

%INCLUDE{"_newhiddenwebname" parametername="parametervalue"}%

Which destroyed my application. Using Ordinarywebname works. The question is if _hiddenwebname should work too?
