Indeed. My Fault.

The intention here was to resolve the problem that scratchpad_link is used to generate, well, links to scratchpads. The problem was that if you mistyped the name of the person you were linking to, such as [pad://demrphq] you would a link like Scratch Pad Viewer which seemed odd and counterintuitive as it is now you get demrphq's scratchpad which at least looks more reasonable, is less suprising to the author of the link, and is easily corrected in the text box on SPV. However as the code in handlelinks settings had to do the lookup it meant there was no easy way to pass in the incorrect value. And I actually didnt want to add a new parameter because I know you have plans to redo some of that stuff anyway, so an additional parameter would just cause you more issues. Also I thought it made sense. :-)

my $user; if (ref $user_id) { $user=$user_id; $user_id=$user->{user_id}; } else { $user = $user_id=~/\D/ ? getNode($user_id, 'user') : getNodeById($u +ser_id); }

Seems to be the best way to deal with this... (IMNSHO anyway)

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.
