#1545 closed defect (fixed)

Tag Index broken for Tag wiki pages with a tilte containing quotes

Reported by: anonymous Owned by: Alec Thomas
Priority: normal Component: TagsPlugin
Severity: normal Keywords:
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10


Env: Trac 0.10.3, TracTags 0.4 (, Python 2.4


For the Tag AOP there exist a wiki page with the name AOP. The tag AOP than doesn't link to the normal tag list (trac.cgi/tags/'AOP'), but to the AOP wiki page (trac.cgi/wiki/AOP)

If the wiki page contains the title

= [wiki:"Aspect-Oriented Programming"] ([wiki:AOP]) =

the Tags page (trac.cgi/tags) is broken because the list entry becomes

<li><a rel="tag" title="[wiki:"Aspect-Oriented Programming"] ([wiki:AOP])  (4)" style="font-size: 11px" href="/cgi-bin/trac.cgi/wiki/AOP">AOP</a></li>

There is no error message in the log an the list entry is not visible in the HTML sources.

It happens in tractags/ (around line 126) in out.write(...).

Maybe it would be sufficient to quote taginfo[tag][1]. A quick experiment with {{{urllib.quote()}} didn't yield the desired result.

Applies as well to render_listtagged() in tractags/

Probably all occurrences of taginfo[tag][1] are at risk (if they are used as a quoted XML/HTML attribute)

OK, I attached a simple patch that converts double quotes to single quotes. It's not exactly ideal, but I don't think there is another solution. The biggest issue being that entities and escaped values aren't rendered in the tool tips.

Anyway, it works for me.

This is no longer an issue because page titles aren't rendered in 0.6.
