The default WikiStart contains:

which misrenders as:

The newline is a problem, apparently.

Do other wikis allow \n in wikilinks?

comment:3 by trac@…, 18 years ago

There are some Web browsers (any more?) that will hard wrap your text for you, so you may not know. Also, if we ever get Emacs support for wiki editing, that'd happen too. :-)

The wiki I work on permits arbitrary amounts of tabs/newlines/spaces at any point it's expecting white space, which is also the way HTML works, so I think it would be a reasonable thing to do for Trac.

Moin doesn't allow newlines in wikilinks either.

This would require too much effort to be really worth it.

This isn't just a problem with new lines: putting a space after the inital opening square bracket causes the linking to fail as well. Would it be possible to strip that whitespace out if the text immediately after it resembles one of the link styles Trac recognizes?
