URLs for Forum threads

Description

Currently the URLs for forum subjects have problems:

  • whitespaces are turned into %20, which looks ugly.
  • a title 'please/reply' will result in an adress that is understood as a request saying you want to reply.

I think it's nicer to turn everything into url-friendly characters like '_' or '-' etc.

[3912] - replaced problematic characters with '-'. We might still change some things later. Is '_' better? And maybe the function does not belong in class ForumsView? ?

Replying to lemon-head:

Now that you changed this behaviour anyway, could you try to get rid of a bug aswell? If you create a topic and start the title of the thread with ", the title won't be displayed in the URL. For an example see: http://test.bewelcome.org/forums/s29-

Any idea, why that is? Can you fix it?

I like your change by the way. And I don't care if it's a '-' or a '_' or whatever. Like this it's just fine. We just shouldn't change it too often, otherwise we get problems with static links on other pages/sites.

No, we don't get such problems - everything that happens after the first '-' symbol is just decoration.

For instance, look where the following link takes you :)
