should not be translated by the InterwikiPlugin
I've found that by adding an Inter-Wiki Link in InterWikis
with the external site alias = Note:
causes the text
to be translated by the InterwikiPlugin
in every place that the text
Note: something important
is encountered. This is problematic because the use of
is so very commonly used in regular text. The same buggy behaviour must also be true for any
that is defined.
I've marked this bug as urgent, because the InterwikiPlugin
is a default plugin.

If this is true then the same should happen here on bugs with a word like News.
Let us try.
First an example where the linking should happen. Link to News:war
And now an example where we should not have a link to News: war
I have tested this both on MAIN and on 4.1.2 and I do not see this bug. The reporter has given 4.0.1 as the version.
Nothing to do on this report.
Upgrade Keith! There are at least 2000 bugs solved since that version.

This on a 4.1.2 engine. But that does not matter at all. InterwikiPlugin
has not changed for a long time. Let's have some more tests:
Note also that the alias does not work if found at the end of a bold string
- There is rarely any News:peace to speak of
- There is rarely any News:peace

Isn't this a spec discussion?
The regular expression can easily be changed to not support
, but the better way would be to just escape the TML correctly, i.e.:
News:peace* into a link in square brackets (as it is also nescessary with regular wikiwords at the end of a bold)
Setting this to no action required, but please feel free to open spec discussion in TWiki:Plugins.InterwikiPluginDev
News: seems to be gone from <nop>TWikiUsers in the meantime.
