Description Michael Daly 2007-05-22 22:09:10 UTC
If one enters a heading in Mediawiki:Sidebar with an embedded blank, the resulting HTML is not valid.


Mediawiki:Sidebar contains:

* recent changes
** recentchanges-url|recentchanges

Output is:

<div class='portlet' id='p-recent changes'>  

The blank in the id is not valid.

At a minimum, in various /skins/skinname.php files, the second line of the following code should be changed from:

  <?php foreach ($this->data['sidebar'] as $bar => $cont) { ?>
    <div class='portlet' id='p-<?php echo htmlspecialchars($bar); ?>'>

  <?php foreach ($this->data['sidebar'] as $bar => $cont) { ?>
    <div class='portlet' id='p-<?php echo str_replace( ' ', '_', htmlspecialchars($bar) ); ?>'>

It may be necessary, in general, to strip out or convert other invalid characters/symbols in the heading string.  

Note if this editing is done in /includes/Skin.php (where the data is constructed), it will result in the modified text being displayed on the wiki page.  Modifying it in the /skins/skinname.php file(s) preserves the display and only prevents the invalid HTML from being generated.
