If NOAUTOLINK is set to on, some links disappear where they are expected.

Problematic pages:

  • DONE WebSearch result list: authors
  • DONE Links to webs that are WikiWords, like TestCases web
  • DONE The author name in the breadcrumb (pattern skin)
  • DONE The signature in WebTopicEditTemplate. A solution would be: [[%USERSWEB%.%WIKINAME%][%WIKINAME%]] - %DATE%
    • Unfortunately it is not possible to override the template with SkinNameWebTopicEditTemplate
  • DONE The user name in the attachment table
  • DONE The list of plugins in InstalledPlugins
  • DONE Related links at the bottom of Main and TWiki web pages. For instance in TWikiGroups.

I am falling into that trap often enough frown

Add plugins like CommentPlugin and ActionTrackerPlugin to the list where user signatures fail to link properly. In skins, not only WebTopicEditTemplate is affected: In the edit template of my custom skin I had to rewrite the "signature for copy and paste" as follows:

For international users, disabling the plural forms, some problems exist also (plural links in brackets become links to unknown pages) - if we are going to walk through links, it would be an idea to keep an eye on that form of "missing links" also.

This is a duplicate of Item3681.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 09 Feb 2008

This was only checked into trunk and I normally test in TWikiRelease04x02.

Now that I have tested a bit I must say please do not merge this change to TWikiRelease04x02.

In the context of allowing login names and allowing non registered users to authenticate this change has a huge negative impact. Everytime someone none registered has edited a topic that person is in T42 presented as Main.loginid. These are rarely wikiwords in our installation.

But with this change they now all becomes links to non-existing topics in Main web. And people just cannot leave those little question marks alone but create the dummy topics.

This is not the right way to solve the problem. It is not elegant as it is today showing Main.c12179. But it gets worse with this change.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 04 May 2008

Kenneth, do you refer to the signature? As the rest of the changes only affect links to documentation topics.

-- TWiki:Main.ArthurClemens - 04 May 2008

Links to doc topic are not a problem.

The signature is a problem.

So is the the REVINFO changes made in the templates.

I have not yet checked the wikinames in search results etc but there may be additional problems there.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 04 May 2008

We can avoid all this by using the =%DISPLAYNAME% setting option mentioned in TWiki:Codev.MakeSignatureFormatConfigurable.

-- TWiki:Main.SvenDowideit - 05 May 2008

Added by input to TWiki:Codev.MakeSignatureFormatConfigurable

An idea worth persuing if we can get it defined right.

-- TWiki:Main.KennethLavrsen - 05 May 2008

This is now complete.

I added a conditional signature based on NOAUTOLINK setting, either user "Main.FirstLast" or "Firstlast"'
