Can't reproduce on trunk, could be a plugin issue?

I have better steps to reproduce this bug. We have Redmine 1.2.2 (and now, for us it's difficult to upgrade to newer version - we have too much custom modifications done by "dirty solutions" .. our upgrade is planned to the beginning of next year).

When on line is just text, which have quotes (") on start and end of line, only this one line (in quotes) is displayed. Nothing else (see example below). When you add before/after quotes some character or whitespace, everything is OK (whole text is displayed).

This is affected in preview and also in normal view of saved comment/text.

In current Redmine version 2.0.3 it works OK. It's possible to tell me, which commit/bugfix fixed it? We'll patch it.. Thank you.

Saw it but that could also be a plugin issue, I don't remember of such an issue since 1.3.

Maybe this isn't going to be much help but I can also reproduce it on 1.0.1 with absolutely no plugins installed. So I doubt it is a plugin issue.

Can someone tell us if it triggers with 1.4.x?

#8 Updated by Alex Kosiaris about 7 years ago


Just downloaded two vm images from and tried

Redmine 1.3.2.stable (MySQL)
Redmine 1.4.4.stable (MySQL)

and failed to reproduce it in both cases. So I guess the issue was fixed somewhere between 1.2.2 and 1.3.2

That being said
git log --oneline 1.2.2..1.3.2 | wc -l

returns 2032 individual commits...

I close this issue since 1.4 is ok and previous versions are not maintained anymore.

Thank you for your feedback.
