    I'm trying to use the FillFromCustomSpecialPage function to access special page listing. I tried the string "DeadendPages", which works just fine. The problem is that the string I really want, "WantedPages", doesn't work. It returns a single page called "Log Out", which is not a legitimate page name. I'm guessing the parser is screwed up somehow.

    The wiki in question can be found here: http://www.opengl.org/wiki The special page I'm trying to link to does exist.

    The wiki is using MediaWiki version 1.21.1. And I am using DotNetWikiBot version 2.102.

    Also, if I try to use FillFromCustomSpecialPageEx, it flat-out throws an exception (on any page name, even "DeadendPages" which works). Specifically, it throws System.Xml.XmlException with the message:

    Unexpected DTD declaration. Line 2, position 49.

    Any ideas?

    I need to test it. Something may have changed in MediaWiki or that specific site may be using some modified scripts.
