Subject [jira] Commented: (JSPWIKI-505) No more <br /> separators in wiki system variables
Date Wed, 18 Feb 2009 16:33:01 GMT


Wouter Van daele commented on JSPWIKI-505:

Janne, I can understand your reluctance to offer information about the configuration of the
system when it concerns the general principle.

However, the Interwiki links are a special case. If we can't show them to the editors of our
pages, noone is going to use them. So it would be nice to be able to display them in a more
readable format than just running text.

As an alternative to the current variable output I'm whipping together a plugin to display
the Interwiki links in several formats; responsability for the possible security hole then
lies with the admin who installs the plugin... ;-)

PS. Disclaimers: Bruno Peeters is a collegue of mine. Our JSPWiki instance is strictly limited
to the company intranet, so security is less of an issue.

>          Issue Type: Bug
>    Affects Versions: 2.8.1
>            Reporter: Bruno Peeters
>            Priority: Minor
> We have noticed that information on the Systeminfo page (
is less userfriendly presented compared to the previous version of jspwiki we are using (2.2.33).
 All information items are put on one single line, which makes it harder to get a clear view
on the information presented, eg the available interwiki links. 
> Why were the <br /> separators removed from the variables ? 
> Would it be possible to add an option to indicate whether the information would be presented
with or without breaks ?
> Concerned wiki variables
> Current Page Provider          {$pageproviderdescription}
> Current Attachment Provider    {$attachmentProviderDescription}
> Available InterWiki links      {$interwikilinks}
> Inlined images are             {$inlinedimages}
