When I add in artist's page a link on Wiki, I see the inscription: "Not a valid URL" -
For any cyrillic wiki pages!

Could you please post the links to Wikipedia and the artists page? I've tried to do this to this, and it doesn't seem to be a problem.

I'd like to mention that the URL itself should contain only Latin characters.

But this also shouldn't be a problem since copying this link from the web-browser:

https://mk.wikipedia.org/wiki/Каролина_Гочева, (not recognized as a URL because of the Cyrillic characters)

gives this when you paste it:

https://mk.wikipedia.org/wiki/%D0%9A%D0%B0%D1%80%D0%BE%D0%BB%D0%B8%D0%BD... .

Just to clarify, you're saying that if you provide the link when you add a new artist it's okay, but when you try to edit an existing artist's wiki page field you get the error, right?

Anyways, I've added the wiki link to the artist from the screenshot. I'd like to suggest to you to try copying the link from a different web-browser and see if it will automatically convert the Cyrillic characters to their Latin URL representation.

You're welcome, I'm glad to help. Wink smile
Since this is not a bug, I won't report it to the admins to have it handled. It's just that the wiki URL validation is handled differently in the two mentioned actions.
I'm guessing the server converts automatically the non-Latin characters from the link in the 'Add new artist' form, and demands that the users enters a valid (all Latin characters in URL) when he/she tries to edit the artist's links.
It sucks that Opera doesn't automatically convert the URLs when you copy them.
