Tech:Pipe trick doesn't work in listings

From Wikitravel Shared
Jump to: navigation, search

What happens[edit]

The "pipe trick" is the MediaWiki feature in which you can type
[[Destination (disambiguator)|]]
And the software, on saving the page, will expand it to
[[Destination (disambiguator)|Destination]]
This feature does not function correctly within the body of listings, even though normal links—and even piped links—work fine.

When it happens[edit]

Whenever you include a pipe-trick link in the body of a listing.

What should happen[edit]

The pipe trick should work as it normally does for text on a wiki page.
