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

In TWiki:Plugins.RedirectPluginDev a user was surprised that the following did not work:


The expansion of the meta appeared to work, but the redirect failed.

The problem is that the %META{"parent"}% generates a result of the form =[[...][...]], which, of course, is not recognized by =%REDIRECT%. If you read the documentation of META, you will find that the parent tag usually generates a cookie trail. Nevertheless, I agree that it is quite reasonable to expect that one gets a normal topic returned from the META tag, at least in the simple form.

I believe that when the option dontrecurse is on (in which case we will always have a single result), the result should not have the anchor brackets, so that it could be used in further TML.
