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

Someone have introduced a new "feature" that shows urls in a short version.

I actually need this.

when you print a document with URLs or make a pdf version URLs can no longer be read and looked up by typing the URL.

You cannot copy paste them either.

I make my hotline in TWiki.

The compiled hotline gets copy pasted into an email.

TOPICURL urls are now useless because they get displayed with dots in between.

It seems not to happen in forms so I cannot put an example here

It must at least be possible to turn this feature off.


Definetely should be optional / plugin'ed imho also. Didn't see discussion on this one anywhere; it has been committed in together with some user code refactoring - Item1651 doesn't cover this.

Item1651: initial extraction of user code

-- SP

OUCH! i hate it, hate it, hate it smile

-- WN

Edinburgh meeting. Consensus to remove feature


I removed the feature in my Twiki's after more customer complaints.

I have attached the simple patch that removes the few lines of code.

I will need someone to commit it on SVN


thanks, kenneth. applied SVN:8861


this is a 4.0.0 bug and needs to go in 4.0.2, right? so, i changed the MergeTo to patch


Nope, this was a develop bug.

We can really have ourselves a feast of confusion in all of this merging, if we're ready to jump in ..

Well, Item1651 was never merged, so this Item (which was part of 1651) was not merged either. Therefore the revertion of part of 1651 does not need to go to 4.0.2 either .. unless someone suddenly decides to merge 1651 later on .. you get the drift smile

Btw: You need to set the "Waiting for merge" status as well, if you are marking other bugs.

-- SP

SP is right, this "fix" is not needed in TWiki4. Marked as Closed

-- RA

This have been closed at release of 4.0.2. Now it is closed.
