Refs #8141:

  • Strip single quotes from the multipleseparator Option value. This allows the user to specify a single whitespace separator as ' ' (which is not necessary since a single whitespace is the default), or even dream up separators such as double whitespace as ' '. A single whitespace character is used as the separator in the case the user specifies ''. Thanks to itamarost for pointing out this corner case in his original patch.
  • Wired up unit tests.
  • Renamed to, to work around an issue described in comment:39, in which the keywordsuggest.keywordsuggest module was not being found by the keywordsuggest.tests.keywordsuggest module when running unit tests.

NOTE: If you have enabled the plugin through webadmin or by editing trac.ini with keywordsuggest.keywordsuggest.* = enabled, you will need to re-enable the plugin through webadmin, or edit the line to keywordsuggest.web_ui.* = enabled (or keywordsuggest.web_ui.keywordsuggestmodule = enabled).

Refs #8141:

  • Allow whitespace as a separator. The default separator, if not otherwise specified, is whitespace.
  • Trim extra whitespace when selecting a keyword.
  • Removed fix-up of keyword list on the client-side. This is done on the server side (although there appears to be room for improvement there).
