00470: external URLs not working

Summary: external URLs not working

Description: Forgive me if I'm missing something extremely simple... I just upgraded to version 2.0-beta48. Pmwiki handles links to wiki pages properly, but it doesn't seem to be handling external URLs right. For example, the following lines:




Produces the following HTML code:

<p><a href="$Url">http://www.google.com</a>
</p><p class='vspace'></p>
<p><a href="$Url">http://www.google.com</a>
</p><p class='vspace'></p>
<p><a href="$Url">Google</a>

Your help is appreciated!!!

What version did you upgrade from?

The link setting generating the <a href="$Url"> looks totally wrong, as if there's an incorrect local customization or else a cookbook recipe that is changing the value of $UrlLinkFmt. The default setting is normally

    $UrlLinkFmt =
      "<a class='urllink' href='\$LinkUrl' rel='nofollow'>\$LinkText</a>";

The fact that the output you're seeing has double-quotes instead of single and is missing the class= attribute makes me think that some sort of local customization is the culprit here.


Duh... That was it - an artifact from an old local customization! Problem fixed... Thanks so much!
