Bug: CommaSeperatedWikiWordRendering

If a user doesn't put spaces into a comma seperated list of WikiNames only the first one gets made into a link..

In my opinion this is not a bug -- HansDonner - 22 Sep 2001

This is debatable - it's generally considered bad punctuation to have a comma without a space, so as Hans points out, it is really the topic that has the bug, not TWiki. -- RichardDonkin - 23 Sep 2001

I agree, it is not a bug.

In fact, I would like to suggest that the whole phrase should be the WikiWord, so WebChanges,WebIndex,WebForm,Main.SvenDowideit should point to a topic called WebChanges,WebIndex,WebForm,Main.SvenDowideit.

I especially would like this as I intend to use the comma-separated form to implement the idea convergence system touched in on TopicsOnlyForNouns.

interesting. I consider it a bug in the TWiki code as it is a simple bit of writing that a wiki user might do (admittedly by accident) and expect that the tool (in this case the TWiki) could cope with..

it might be bad punctuation, but even so, the user is never wrong smile

Martin, the convergence idea strikes me a as a very large amount of magic, with quite a lot of relevance to programmers, but what about the other users?

-- SvenDowideit - 23 Sep 2001

I think that TWiki should not cope with every possible error the user might (un)intentionally make. Thake the three-spaces-*, should TWiki allow for the mistake of 1 extra / less space? I should think not, but that's just my thoughts. You could always fix it locally if you want to.
Anyway, when pressing preview after editing, the mistake could be spotted easily enough.

About turning the comma seperated (but without spaces) into a new topic: sounds interesting.

I've changed to feature brainstorming as I also don't see this as a bug.
