Item10644: bin/changes output is corrupted

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Normal Closed Engine FoswikiTemplates, FoswikiUIChanges  
There appear to be a couple of issues to the old bin/changes script output.

  • Foswiki::UI::Changes calls Meta::summariseChanges without passing the 'TML' option, so the change is a plain text (+ / -) diff style output. The script should generate TML for rendering.
  • The %AUTHOR% substitution in the template is corrupted.

I suspect the corruption of the AUTHOR is due to the changes to the templates to make sure that WikiNames are never rendered as broken links. Changes uses the search.pattern.tmpl: to display the results, The corrupted author is coming from the following:

 <span class="foswikiSRAuthor">%MAKETEXT{"by [_1] " args="%IF{"istopic '%AUTHOR%'" then="[[%AUTHOR%][$wikiname]]" else="$wikiname"}%"}%</span>

Where is $wikiname set from? The Changes script only sets %AUTHOR% However for some reason in the generated html, the truncated link is generated using &lt;
