Description Gerard Foley 2006-09-07 14:15:26 UTC
The magic work {{DISPLAYTITLE}} is not working. I tried it out in the Sandbox
and got no effect, then I went back to the sandbox a few days later and it was
woring, then I made an edit to the sandbox and the title went back to

Works here:
Dosn't work here:

I'm pretty sure {{DISPLAYTITLE}} has never worked properly.  I suppose nobody's
bothered removing it because it's an obscure option set to false by default.
Comment 2 Omegatron 2006-10-03 13:51:24 UTC
So if {{DISPLAYTITLE}} were made to work properly, we could get rid of the
horribly kludgy {{wrongtitle}} and friends?  

({{lowercase}}, {{underscore}}, {{lowercase and underscore}}, {{longtitle}},
{{pipe in title}}, {{namespace}}, ...)

That would be a huge improvement.

Among other things, the magic word doesn't interface with the parser output in a correct 
manner, nor was it coded to work with the parser cache.
Comment 4 Rob Church 2007-07-15 12:13:59 UTC
Fixed back in r23393.
