Description Christian Semrau 2004-10-23 12:58:28 UTC
In the live WP, a link that is longer than 255 bytes is not shown to be a link,
but creates a broken link in the database.

Example:

http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugen_Helml%C3%A9

contains the long link

[[Die Gehaltserhöhung oder Wie die physischen, psychischen, klimatischen,
ökonomischen und sonstigen Bedingungen beschaffen sein müssen, damit Sie die
größtmöglichen Chancen haben, Ihren Abteilungsleiter um eine Aufbesserung Ihres
Gehaltes bitten zu können]]

which is not shown to be a link but creates the brokenlink

"Die Gehaltserhöhung oder Wie die physischen, psychischen, klimatischen,
ökonomischen und sonstigen Bedingungen beschaffen sein müssen, damit Sie die
größtmöglichen Chancen haben, Ihren Abteilungsleiter um eine Aufbesserung Ihres
Gehaltes bitten zu k"

which is 255 bytes long.

There are two more example in the german WP (as of 10 Oct 2004).

These links should not have been inserted into the text in the first place (the
long titles are unwanted), but the reaction of the software seems to be buggy.

Local installations of v1.4 HEAD and REL1_3 do not get a brokenlinks row with
'links' greater than 255 characters.  de.wikipedia.org is currently on 1.3.7wm.
