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


This looks like the same problem as the one reported as "Leave %TOC intact" on WysiwygPluginProblemReports, 03 Sep 2005. It was reported as being fixed in the 0.16 release, but still seems to be there on my install (TWiki/Dakar release 10 Oct 2005, WysiwygPlugin version 0.16), and can also be replicated in the develop.twiki.org Sandbox web:

  • Create a topic that uses variables, e.g. %INCLUDE or %TOC
  • Edit using Kupu
  • Save
  • The page source now contains the expanded values of the variables, instead of the original ones

Test case:

Tested using Firefox versions 1.0.3 and 1.0.7 on Linux.

Note: Sorry, I had to report this bug as TWikiGuest because Registration seems to be broken at develop.twiki.org at the moment... I'll register as soon a possible as LevienVanZon.

Thanks Levien. Registration on this web is supposed to be synched with TWiki.org, so you should register there and not here.

The WysiwygPlugin is not enabled on ~develop. You can still use the kupu skin, but the translation of tags won't happen unless the plugin is enabled.

Make sure the plugin is enabled in your install (in configure)


Hmm, I did register on TWiki.org as LevienVanZon, but still can't login here. Or won't I have to? Anyway, it doesn't really matter...

The WysiwygPlugin is enabled on my install, as are the following extra plugins: ExtendedSelectPlugin (1.001), NatSkinPlugin (2.53), RedDotPlugin (1.25) and TopicTranslationsPlugin (1.103).

I just tried disabling the NatSkinPlugin, that seems to solve the problem, but unfortunately I need the NatSkinPlugin for my site. frown

Can you try the same test by enabling/disabling the TwistyPlugin, please.


Tried it, but after enabling the TwistyPlugin and disabling NatSkinPlugin it still seemed to work fine... Only when I enabled the NatSkinPlugin the problem reoccured.

Note however that, although the plugin was enabled, I was not able to install one of the TwistyPlugin dependencies (TWiki::Contrib::TwistyContrib). Couldn't find it on CPAN, and the installer script failed as well.


Ehm, the TwistyContrib is a TWiki package: see TWiki:Plugins.TwistyContrib but better take the svn version in DEVELOP/twikiplugins/TwistyContrib. But anyway if the bug can only be reproduced with the "help" of the NatSkinPlugin then this item has to be renamed to be a NatSkinPlugin bug, not a WysiwygPlugin.


Since SVN 7780 the NatSkinPlugin disables itself when used with another skin (see Item1130). I tested the kupu editor and things seem to be fine now. Can anybody else who had problems before confirm that this bug is fixed now, please?


When testing, rather than firing up the Kupu editor every time, you can just ?skin=kupu&wysiwyg_edit=1 to the view URL in the browser bar. Example: http://develop.twiki.org/~develop/cgi-bin/view/Bugs/WebHome?skin=kupu&wysiwyg_edit=1

That will return the text that is passed to Kupu for editing, after processing through the WysiwygPlugin. If the plugin is correctly installed and enabled you should see TWiki variables as spans.


No negative feedback, so I'm closing this.
