#9123 new enhancement

WikiFormatting in link text does not work

Try to use a link which has a text that makes use of WikiFormatting. Like this link to `SandBox` or this link to the ''root'' of the Trac sources. I expect the link texts to be rendered in a way so that they contain “SandBox” and “root”, respectively, not “`SandBox`” and “''root''”.

It is impossible to use markup consistently in, for example, a ticket comment when you also like to link to files, other tickets, revisions, etc., and you use monospace highlighting for file names, or have some other convention or personal preference for using markup.

I have successfully been able to reproduce this shortcoming in the sandbox in the 0.11 and 0.12 demo installations.

Known limitation. A workaround is to wrap the link in italics, when the whole link has to be formatted:

''[http://trac.edgewall.org t.e.o]''


But this only a workaround and obviously won't work with `` quotes, and not in the examples given above.

Switching type to enhancement request, as defect is used for things which don't work as advertised, which is not the case here.
