Description

This is more of a bug that I just discovered. When adding a note, if you use brackets i.e. "(" and ")",
Redmine seems to remove them once you click Add.

History

I close this bug. If it happens again, just reopen it.

#2 Updated by Neil Rodrigues almost 12 years ago

Hello,

For some reason I can't reproduce the bug. The brackets are
showing up fine... Oh well, thanks for looking into it anyway.

#3 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang almost 12 years ago

I made a quick test and nothing was removed from the note.
I can't see why the brackets would have been removed.

Are you able to reproduce this bug ?

#4 Updated by Neil Rodrigues almost 12 years ago

Sure. I typed in:

"Hey Austin,

You should just stick with 16-bit wav, and only deliver an
*.ogg for when the file is ready to be dropped in-game
(Torque can't play *.mp3 files, they have to be *.ogg). The
24-bit wav you can keep on your machine.

Neil"

And it seemed to remove the ( and ) from the note... I'm
pretty sure I didn't delete those manually.

After a few tests, I can reproduce.
Could you give the exact string that you type in your issue note
?

We are having the same problem with redmine 0.7.3. It's running on a SLES 10 server with Ruby 1.8.6 and rails installed from rubygems 1.3.0. We started out importing our existing database from Mantis and those bug reports all had square brackets removed. The same problem happens when I try to use them in notes.

I've used regexes in some feature requests and all the character classes have the brackets removed, i.e. ":digit:+" became ":digit:+".

Educated guess, the Wiki function pwns the brackets? :)

I ended up using [ for [ and ] for ] which produces the result I expected.

[ [ and ] ] (with no spaces) are used for wiki links.
