#9370 closed defect (fixed)

Ensure plugins admin panel is rendered even if wrong syntax in docs

Reported by: olemis+trac@… Owned by: Remy Blank
Priority: high Milestone: 0.12
Component: admin/web Version: 0.11.7
Severity: major Keywords: wiki admin web

Internal Changes:


The documentation of available plugins is rendered in the admin panel. The fact is that if docs contain a syntax error (e.g. because something changed in new version ;o) then the corresponding exception is not handled, thus Trac error message is shown instead. This means that under such conditions it's impossible to manage installed plugins. Considering that this panel is very important, and also that HTML docs is a relatively cosmetic feature, it would be nice to wrap the code used to render wiki markup so as to catch exceptions. On error, a message like Impossible to render docs for plugin XxxPlugin : Message ? should be shown as plugin description. This way it will be possible to proceed with admin tasks .

It is a defect, and too bad about the patch :)

Are you sure this happens on 0.11.7? AFAICR, I added the plugin descriptions on trunk…

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

There's no wiki rendering of plugin docstrings on 0.11-stable, so this must be 0.12-specific. Fixed in [9787].
