There was a request to add similar functionality for ISSN numbers as exists now for ISBN numbers.

These files add this feature.

This patch is useless because the code that was supposed to use the function you
added is commented out, furthermore, making a new function to parse ISSN codes
rather than adding that functionality to the already existing ISBN function
(they're parsed almost in the same way),

Comment 5 Brion Vibber 2005-12-03 02:25:10 UTC
* Avoid mixing tabs and spaces; use tabs consistently
* Please follow existing code conventions on code block usage
* Will require patch to Sanitizer.php to protect against ISSN links in HTML 
* Won't this not work without a patch to Booksources?

What's the appropriate way to patch for messages
Comment 10 Omegatron 2006-12-05 15:44:52 UTC
What is this for?  ISBN is a label for a single book.  ISSN is a label for an
entire journal; not individual articles or even volumes.  What is going to be on
the "ISSN sources" page?  A single link to the web site of the journal?  What's
the point?
Comment 11 Chad H. 2009-03-13 13:11:57 UTC
WONTFIX'ing per comment 10 and lack of activity for 3 years.
Comment 12 Aryeh Gregor (not reading bugmail, please e-mail directly) 2009-03-13 13:14:13 UTC
Lack of activity is never a legitimate reason for WONTFIXing, but I don't think we want more magic like ISBN and RFC.  Better that those should be phased out in favor of templates at some point in the future.
Comment 13 Mark A. Hershberger 2010-12-02 19:00:37 UTC
re-opening to depend on Bug #26207
Comment 14 Chad H. 2011-12-23 19:53:58 UTC
Removing need-review keyword. This absolutely depends on 26207 which presumably would handle this cleanly without requiring Sanitizer & Parser changes.
