I just installed the ActionTrackerPlugin (Dakar, 8090) a few days ago. I set up a TWiki topic that serves as a central location for opening and closing actions. For example:

%ACTION{ due="17-Apr-2006" who="me" state="open" }% Test 1 
%ACTION{ due="18-Apr-2006" who="me" state="open" }% Test 2
upon saving the topic, a nice table was created for me with no problem. I then followed the "Edit" hyperlink, made some edit to my first action, and came back to my original topic to find only one entry in the Actions table. Right under the Actions table was this line: %ACTION{ due=

I tried it with other text that contains a quotation mark and it seems like all the content after the quotation mark is gone. By viewing the source of the edit window popup, I see that all text before and after the action that was clicked on are being stuffed into hidden form fields. I guess all the quotation marks in the pre and post text need to be escaped?

The plugin uses CGI::hdden (from the CGI CPAN module) to insert this text. That function is supposed to do all necessary escaping of content. it works as advertisied on my version ($CGI::VERSION 3.17)

Please check your CGI version, upgrade it is appropriate, and let me know if that cures the problem.


Upgrading the CGI version to 3.17 seems to have solved the problem.
