Temporary hack for LinksUpdate.php REL1_4 (711 bytes, patch)
2005-01-01 15:56 UTC, Zigger

Description Looxix 2004-12-25 22:21:43 UTC
Since v1.4, adding in an article a category with a name containing a single
quote is broken.

the article is not added to the given category but with to a category name in
which each single quotes (%27) are preceded by a backslash (%5C%27).

[Test cat] is not added to
but to
Comment 1 Looxix 2004-12-27 20:03:01 UTC
The same problem affect the links table.
Comment 2 Jean-Frédéric BAECH.ER 2004-12-31 21:26:47 UTC
The problem is not only when creating an article but occurs when modifying an
article too.
Comment 3 Zigger 2005-01-01 15:56:45 UTC
Created attachment 188 [details]
Temporary hack for LinksUpdate.php REL1_4

The category title seems to be incorrectly double-strencoded when written to
the columns categorylinks.cl_to and searchindex.si_text, but is only strencoded
once for writes to cur.cur_text, old.old_text and cur.cur_title.  When
CategoryPage.php looks for articles, the category title is only strencoded

The attachment only fixes writes to categorylinks.cl_to.

Large number of related problems introduced by a misunderstanding in upgrading that file.
Comment 8 Brion Vibber 2005-01-09 21:11:32 UTC
Now fixed in 1.4 code. Have done a quick job to fix up the links tables on wikimedia sites; searchindex will update
