There are several issues if the NOAUTOLINK setting is turned on site-wide in the Main.TWikiPreferences, or for a web in WebPreferences.

Known issues:

  • The TWiki web relies on autolinking, so TWiki.WebPreferences should overload a site-wide NOAUTOLINK setting.
  • WebChanges, WebIndex, WebSearch search result, WebSearchAdvanced search result: Author is shown as Main.TWikiGuest, should be [[$wikiusername][$wikiname]]
  • WebHome, WebPreferences, WebNotify and all other topics in _default web: Should not assume autolinking, e.g. should exclusively use [[...]] and [[...][...]] links.
  • rdiff: Each revision shows the author as Main.TWikiGuest, should be [[$wikiusername][$wikiname]]
  • oops: template=backlinksweb shows the author as Main.TWikiGuest, should be [[$wikiusername][$wikiname]]
  • The "allow non WikiWord for the new topic name" checkbox in the rename screen should be checked if NOAUTOLINK is on, unchecked if off.

There are probably more issues.
