CharInsert: Split displayed text from inserted code
Open, MediumPublic


As the title says, the displayed text for CharInsert should be splitted from the inserted code.
E.g.: "includeonly" inserts <includeonly></includeonly>

It would also be awesome if multirow text could be inserted like templates and tables.

Feel free to review this patch for inclusion in CharInsert extensions, it allows to customized the link label by passing a "label" argument to charinsert tag, example:

<charinsert label="foo">bar</charinsert>

Please tell me if it needs additional work.

add custom label on charinsert test case

Here is a test case that validated submitted patch behaviour.


Sorry, had not time back then and now remembered this. The patch works fine (without the test case). Cheers!

How can I add line breaks using your patch? E.g. to insert

Johan, I'm sorry for the wait. I'm marking this bug with "need-review" to signal to developers that there's code here awaiting review. Thank you for your patch and test case.

Johan, does your patch still apply?

I recommend that you get a developer access account so that you can commit your patches directly into the source control system in the future -- in fact, you could update and submit this patch, and get it reviewed faster. I'm sorry for the delay.

This was requested again [1] so I guess the patch never made it to the official repo.


@Kghbln Yeah that was me. I am almost begging for someone to make it an official repo. I don't understand PHP well enough to do any tweaking of this extension myself, so please would someone do this.

5 years later and it's still not possible to create a one word button for multi-line code. E.g.

<charinsert label="Infobox"><nowiki>{{Infobox&#10; |&#10;}}</nowiki></charinsert>

@Subfader: To get this moving, you are very welcome to use developer access to submit the proposed code changes as a Git branch directly into Gerrit which makes it easier to review them quickly and provide feedback. If you don't want to set up Git/Gerrit, you can also use the Gerrit Patch Uploader. Thanks again!

Can someone submit this patch?

@AlexeiKopylov : You can, or anybody else. See my previous comment. :)

I never done this, so I wonder if someone more familiar with the process can do it. It's not my code, and I don't know how to test it. Or is it OK to submit patch without testing? Also there are two patches above, I don't know which one is better.

After submitting to Gerrit, you could add a separate comment explicitly saying that it's untested
