Proposed patch to Cite_body.php (632 bytes, patch)
2008-09-30 01:36 UTC, Ryan Schmidt

Description sharon.dagan 2008-09-30 01:29:55 UTC

Using {{#tag:ref|name=something}} to produce a <ref> doesn't work.

I think that the root cause of this problem is that Cite thinks the 
following code is invalid:

<ref name="something"></ref>

Unfortunately, this is the code that {{#tag}} produces.  

See test case here:

Proposed patch to Cite_body.php

Added a proposed patch that ''might'' fix this issue. I have not yet tested it out (will do that tomorrow if nobody else does), so I'm not sure if anything else needs changing as well
Comment 2 Steve Sanbeg 2008-10-01 19:58:23 UTC
fixed in r41512, but a little more strict than the patch; it should allow <ref name=whatever></ref>, but give the error for <ref></ref>.

Was fixed in r41669, reclosing.  (Didn't affect the correctness of the fix anyway.)
