Documentation states that "The Alias must start with an upper case letter and may contain alphanumeric letters"

However, "Capital Letter + Number" does not work as an Alias does not work as an alias. For example: K2

Marked as urgent priority because InterwikiPlugin is a default plugin.

I have tried to create Interwiki aliased like Bu4gs and B4 and they work perfectly. I even tried K2.

What version of TWiki are you refering to? Your report says 4.0.1. Did you try in a more recent version before you raised this report?

I have tried both on current SVN and on 4.1.2 and K2 works both places.

I cannot demo K2 here because the Interwikis topic would be overwritten by SVN soon.

There is one example with alplanumerical that shows that numbers work.


You didn't by any change try to bold the link like in this report?

C2find:wiki as well as TWiki.WikiWord do not render as links per spec.

It is still possible to bold a link like this using the format C2find:wiki and same with wiki word links TWiki.WikiWord (view raw to see syntax)

Nope, bolding wasn't the problem. But thanks for the tutorial ! I'm not certain what was wrong, but the InterwikiPlugin seemed only to have a delayed reaction.

Could be my use of TWiki:Codev.SpeedyCGI ... but now that I come back a day later, the K2: alias is working correctly. No bug afterall smile
