Item8440: Expand Macros in References

pencil
Priority: Normal
Current State: Closed
Released In:
Target Release: n/a
Applies To: Extension
Component: BibliographyPlugin
Branches:
Reported By: AndreLichtsteiner
Waiting For: Main.AndrewJones
Last Change By: PaulHarvey
Macros in References get not expanded. This would be nice for example to show an Icon or so:

| *Key* | *Description* |
| ref1 | R. Eference, bla ha ha, 2010 [[http://somewhere/document.pdf][%ICON{"pdf"}%]] |

The following change in BibliographyPlugin.pm seems to solve the problem.

@@ -144,3 +144,3 @@
 # in Foswiki:Extensions/DeprecatedHandlers.
-sub preRenderingHandler
+sub beforeCommonTagsHandler
 {

But honestly, I don't now about collateral impact or potential danger of this change.

I'm also not sure about what impact this change might have for existing users of the plugin. Have you done much testing with existing bibliographies?

I will see if I can test this and if it doesn't break existing users then I am happy to make the change.

-- AndrewJones - 29 Jan 2010

I did some testing and this looks like a good change, so have updated the plugin and uploaded a new version.
