Description Fibonacci 2007-07-25 01:14:30 UTC
Some (if not all) of the ParserFunctions appear to be inserting a newline character before the returned string. For example, if the wiki source contains this:

Instead of rendering it as a#1, MediaWiki produces this in the HTML source:

Which is what I would have expected if the wiki source had been this:

If the character before 1 is an asterisk, the same problem can be noticed. However, a{{#if:x|1}} renders as expected - understandable, since if there were a newline right after the "a", the result would be the same as if there were none.

Comment 2 George Dowding 2007-12-17 01:39:34 UTC
This appears to have been fixed in the trunk.

The following wiki source:



Browsing the changes to ParserFunctions.php, I am unable to identify a change that fixed this problem.

Comment 6 Melancholie 2008-08-12 09:53:25 UTC
Copied from duplicated bug 14036 [semicolon]:

Since some time #ifexist: is producing a line break for the first condition!

If page exists the value is shown with a line break in front. If page does not
exist everything is fine!

* (rendered text)
(source text)

Note: I could replace the semicolon by &#59; (I know)
(unknown IP),

but it should also work with ";"!
Comment 7 aliter 2008-09-08 17:01:02 UTC
I use #if:, but the problem is the same: It looks like inside the if, the semicolon is interpreted as the start of a definition.
Comment 8 Splarka 2009-05-13 18:52:42 UTC
Duping up, bug 12974 properly indicates it is a core problem and affects more than just parserfunctions/extensions.
