Linebreaks in Trac

Reported by: humdinger Owned by: haiku-web
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Website/Trac Version: R1/pre-alpha1

One thing that keeps bothering me and had fooled many a bugreporter in the past: A new paragraph is recognized by an empty line, but a linebreak isn't detected and has to be explicitely be set with a [ [BR] ] (w/ the spaces).

Couldn't we train Trac to recognize a linebreak?
Doesn't OSDrawer also use Trac? It works over there...

OSDrawer doesn't use trac, but HaikuPorts does. We run into this issue a lot, to get around it try using the triple brackets around the text

Then you'll often run into the other issue of the text being too long for the current line and triggering the left/right scroll bars.

In general this is a trac issue, you might search and see if this type of issue has already but requested on trac's trac: (click the little trac logo at the bottom on the page)

Looks like the suggestion was denied 3 years ago:

"The second proposition (to treat a line break in the wiki edit area as a carriage return) would break existing wiki syntax, if not removing a very useful editing feature."

Oh well... <sigh>
