Description lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2007-11-23 18:19:49 UTC
Dear friends,

At the url from above
the autocomment generates a link as

This link is of no real use, because the section was deleted long time ago.

The autocomment in the history should look like this:

I mean that oldid=37747972 should be added.

I assume that the cahnage relates to:

search for:
	 * This function is called by all recent changes variants, by the page history,
	 * and by the user contributions list. It is responsible for formatting edit
	 * comments. It escapes any HTML in the comment, but adds some CSS to format
	 * auto-generated comments (from section editing) and formats [[wikilinks]].
	 * @author Erik Moeller <>
	 * Note: there's not always a title to pass to this function.
	 * Since you can't set a default parameter for a reference, I've turned it
	 * temporarily to a value pass. Should be adjusted further. --brion
	 * @param string $comment
	 * @param mixed $title Title object (to generate link to the section in autocomment) or null
	 * @param bool $local Whether section links should refer to local page
	function formatComment($comment, $title = NULL, $local = false) {
		wfProfileIn( __METHOD__ );

		# Sanitize text a bit:
		$comment = str_replace( "\n", " ", $comment );
		$comment = htmlspecialchars( $comment );

		# Render autocomments and make links:
		$comment = $this->formatAutoComments( $comment, $title, $local );
		$comment = $this->formatLinksInComment( $comment );

		wfProfileOut( __METHOD__ );
		return $comment;

To implement this, would need to add an $oldid option to Linker::formatComment() and buddies. Somewhat undecided on whether we'd want this everywhere...

Note that parser tests can now accomodate the edit comment parser, using the 'comment' option. (Plus 'title' and 'local' options; 'local' for the view you'll get on eg diffs, where hash links will be inline.) Test cases should be added for this feature if written.
