Does this site look broken?. Use the LitterTray web for test cases.

I tested this both on v 0.16 and in the version from de develop branch (today's date).

I select some text, then press the local link button, choose a link, it makes a link not on my selected text, but on my selected text + the WikiWord corresponding to the local link.

Example : I select "this is a link to my new page", press local link, choose MyNewPage in the list, then I've got a text "this is a link to my new pageMyNewPage" in the wysiwyg, that is a link corresponding to this is a link to my new pageMyNewPage

I expect the link to be just corresponding to the selected text, not corrupting the text I selected.

On another hand, if I have not selected anything, then I expect the Wikiword to be inserted in the text.

Another problem is for making local links not to a current web topic. How can I do that without having to type Main for example ? Which is BTW a bad way to do it as I'm not sure that 1) it will make a link and 2) I mistyped the link.

Alain Desilet, at the wikisym pointed very clearly in his paper "are wikis usable" that making local links is the number 1 difficulty for wiki users.

A useful tool to might be 'cancel link' - something to remove any active link from the currrent cursor point.

  • Martin, the cancel-link tool is already there, and has been for ages. A chain link with a big X on it.

-- MC

You cannot link to topics outside the current web. This was a practical decision based on the time taken to enumerate and load the list of topics in large webs.

The main issue of this report (please make one report per issue!) is fixed in SVN 7673
