Description

Hello,

I can't find any documentation on how to make hyperlinks to other log entries, but another collaborator believes the syntax is supposed to be "visible link text":12345 to link to entry 12345. This doesn't work, however, as it generates a link to http://dbweb5.fnal.gov:8080/ECL/nova/E/97885, which leads to "Uncaught exception".

It does work if I do "visible link text":show?e=12345. But this seems unlikely to be the intended way to do it.

Please let me know what the syntax is supposed to be, and whether the current behavior is considered a bug.

Thanks,
Matthew

Hi Matthew,
if what you are trying to do is to use the "refer to entry" field when creating a new entry, make sure you have textile formatted box selected.
This works ,I just tried it. Please let me know, thanks

Ah, all my tests have been in comments, for which there are no such options.

HI,
ah, sorry we don't have that feature in comments..we are NOT adding new development to ECL, at least for now.
Can we then close this issue since we understand what's going on?
Thanks

I take it that you didn't intend links to work in comments at all, but they work by accident, albeit in an odd way?

I'm not sure where you draw the line between "new feature" and "bug fix", but it seems to me that this could be considered a bug that needs to be fixed. Either text typed into the comments box should be shown verbatim (i.e. not interpreted as any markup language), or it should be interpreted in the same way that text typed into a new entry is.

If the bug fix is as easy as adding "show?e=" to the code that constructs a link, I think this should be done.
