Linebreaks in Trac

Reported by: humdinger Owned by: haiku-web
Priority: normal Milestone: R1

Description

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 http://dev.haiku-os.org/wiki/WikiFormatting

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: http://trac.edgewall.org/ticket/3277

"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>
