( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
This is definitely the place to ask (though the chatterbox is an alternative). I think this was broken quite recently, with this innocuous looking change to scratchpad_link:
- my $user = getNodeById($user_id); + my $user = $user_id=~/\D/ ? getNode($user_id, 'user') : getNodeById( +$user_id);
where in one particular case, the passed-in user_id was actually a user node object instead (which getNodeById blithely allows). I find this kind of amusing, that an attempt to make one piece of code more generous in what kinds of input it takes was foiled by another piece of code with a similar generousity :)

I'd rather see routines expect the kind of data they really want, and rely on the caller to do any transformation needed (in the case of the change above, handlelinks_settings).

Update: the problem is fixed (or at least worked-around) now.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
