#1728 assigned defect

macros in included wikis not processed correctly

Reported by: chtaylo3@… Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: normal Component: IncludeMacro
Severity: major Keywords: macro processor renderer nesting
Cc: Trac Release: 0.10

Description (last modified by Steffen Hoffmann)

if you include a wiki page that itself calls a macro (such as ParentLinkage) then said macro will run with the request information of the containing wiki page (as opposed to the contained wiki page).

This manifests itself when: Parent1\!WikiPage1 contains:


and, Parent2\!WikiPage2 contains:


the ouput prints the parent linkage for Parent2\!WikiPage2 twice as opposed to the parent linkage for Parent2\!WikiPage2 followed by Parent1\!WikiPage1.

suggest the following workaround:

  1. import wiki_to_html from
  2. under the case where source_format == 'wiki' instead out setting out to be page.text, call wiki_to_html. You will probably need to pass in a crafted req object based on ... I think the var you need to set is req.hdf.setValue('wiki.page_name', but I'm not very familiar with Trac ... not sure if that's the best way to go about it or not.
  3. at the end, do not call Mimeview.render if the source_format is a wiki .... since it is already called from the wiki_to_html func.

hope this helps!

funny .... I'm trying to suggest some fixes and I can't even remember to use trac properly ... lol... it's late

#9035 is related, but is aiming at purging nested macro output from the included resource instead.

I found this ticket while experiencing what I believe is the opposite issue.

I am using Trac 1.0.1, and I have a page called Include/AllPagesAfterTitle which is meant to be included on every Wiki page right after the title to give all pages the same general structure. This Include/AllPagesAfterTitle consists of (besides other things) [[PageOutline(2-9,Page Table Of Contents,inline,unnumbered)]].

The problem I am seeing is that this macro renders the table of contents of the Include/AllPagesAfterTitle page, and not the page that calls [[Include(Include/AllPagesAfterTitle)]], which is what I intend.
