#4532 closed defect (worksforme)

Only shortest acronym is matched

Reported by: zeljko Owned by: Ryan J Ollos
Priority: high Component: AcronymsPlugin

Description (last modified by Ryan J Ollos)

If there are two acronyms where shorter one is equal to beginning of longer one, e.g.

||WS||Web Service|| || ||
||WSDL||Web Service Description Language|| || ||

only the shorter one will be matched, i.e. only "WS" part of "WSDL" will be underlined and only "WS" description will be seen.

Partial match is practical for plurals (e.g. WSDLs), but should be limited to upper case part of the acronym.

I can't reproduce this behavior with Trac 0.11.8dev-r9998.

Please reopen if it still doesn't work after upgrading to Trac 0.11.7.

In fact, the following example works as I expect it to as well:

||RFC||Request For Comment $1||||$1.txt||
||RFC2315||Req for comment 2315 || ReqForComment|| ||

In that case, RFC 2315 links to ReqForComment, as I'd expect it to over-ride the match to RFC<id>.
