should have "Add spaces" option on by default

Bug Description

Moin has an "Add spaces to displayed wiki names" option that is off by default. If it was on by default for the wiki, the real words would start being present in the pages' titles and main headings, so the pages would do better in Web searches.

Thanks for your bug.

Unfortunately this is not possible with the outdated version of the wiki software that we use. Hopefully it will be possible to upgrade in the future and we can fix this.

Unfortunately this feature appears to have been removed from current versions of Moin due to problems with localisation and it is no longer working.

The only way that I can see to achieve this effect is to rewrite page titles manually using #title Wiki Name and rewriting link text using [[WikiName|Wiki Name]]. I think that should be standard practice and will add something about this to the standard document template and WikiGuide pages.
