    I've some problems in uploading and link to posts file having special characters in filename.
    I neew to mantain filename as-is, even if containing special characters like & . - _
    Wordpress filters and eliminates this character modifying filename.
    Can anyone tell me where a can modify the normail workflow of file uploading in order to avoid modifcation in uploaded filename?
    Thanks

    This is not a WordPress-only issue, it's just a limitation of using the web. See:
