#3628 closed defect (fixed)

Topic subjects should disregard wiki page names

Cc: Trac Release: 0.11


If you post a topic which contains the name of a wiki page then the link to the topic is replaced by a link to the wiki page. This is very confusing to users and may require you to click the id on the topic list instead of the subject.

Here's an example (take note of the "DataCleaner 1.2 is out!" and "Report on DataCleaner development process" topics):

That is intended behavior since topic name is parsed with wiki syntax interpreter. You can always use ! before any wiki name. Do you have any suggestion how to provide behavior you want but keep current behavior as default?

I guess a configuration option to disable the wiki interpreter for subject fields would be the best solution then?

I wouldn't assume that my users are aware of the wiki syntax so I can't require them to use the ! symbol (although I will go and edit the existing posts now to fix my forum).

OK, then there will be an option to disable sublinks in topic display.

Fixed in trunk with r5258. As soon as trunk will be tested enough, it will be merged to 0.11 branch.
