Item1814: ATTACHEDFILELINKFORMAT expands $name counter-intuitively

Priority: CurrentState: AppliesTo: Component: WaitingFor:
Normal Closed Engine    
The expansion of $name in ATTACHEDFILELINKFORMAT is bad:
  • the first occurrence expands to the url-encoded version of the filename
  • the second occurrence expands to the "normal" filename
  • any further occurrences are not expanded at all

see Foswiki::Attach::getAttachmentLink()

I propose
  • to introduce $url which expands to the url-encoded representation
  • and to change the default behaviour of $name to always expand to "the normal filename"

This will break backward-compatibility for those, who have a custom ATTACHEDFILELINKFORMAT setting.

I would like to make those changes. Any objections/concerns?

Go for it. /me thinks of a bad code award.

Added $filename and $fileurl instead of kicking $name. Added docs in FileAttachment and changed default settings in DefaultPreferences.
