make our mediawiki's CodeSelect compatible with |
Closed, ResolvedPublic


CodeSelect (T93) is causing issues.


When using | inside the wiki markup, it will not show up in the generated wiki html.

Wiki usage working:

text here

Wiki usage broken:

text here | pipe will be lost

Perhaps while we are at it we can remove the need for |code=, somehow make | work. Or use another character to escape if that is possible? Or escape | somehow?

Replacing the | with {{!}} will render a | as expected. {{!}} is a "magic word" to Mediawiki, and it converts it to a pipe character.

For example:

text here {{!}} pipe will be saved
