Description Тони Стоев | Toni Stoev 2011-04-09 06:58:01 UTC
Example: [[GNU General Public License|GPL]]v2 shows as GPLv2 where GPLv is linked.
Comment 1 Max Semenik 2011-04-09 07:15:41 UTC
This is an expected and intentional behaviour. If you want to override it, wrap it in <nowiki>: [[GNU General Public License|GPL]]<nowiki>v2</nowiki>.
Comment 2 Тони Стоев | Toni Stoev 2011-04-09 07:31:15 UTC
Strange. Can you please explain the motivation of this behavior or point to relevant documentation?
Comment 3 Max Semenik 2011-04-09 08:02:09 UTC
Comment 4 Тони Стоев | Toni Stoev 2011-04-09 08:11:31 UTC
Thank you, Max, for providing the link, but there is no explanation of this exact behavior there.
Comment 5 Тони Стоев | Toni Stoev 2011-04-09 08:41:42 UTC
I applied the <nowiki> hack in the Wikipedia page where I had encountered this feature/bug, but this is no solution for the community.

"word-ending links" on the help page is this behaviour.

If the part after a link match the $linktrail in Messages*.php than it is a part of the link. That save many links with alternative linktext, but in some cases you have to work around. You can also use <nowiki /> to break the linktrail from the link [[GNU General Public License|GPL]]<nowiki />v2.

Ah! Thank you for quoting explictly. Now I know.

So, this is because of being able to write for example:
