Okay, so since I have some users of.... errrr... limited! technical capacity, I thought I would be nice and define an InterWiki tag for inlining images like this:

jspwiki.interWikiRef.image = http://www.cocosoft.co.za/wikipix/%s

where %s is the name of a picture (gif/jpg/png) file uploaded to the right place (actually on a separate server, since I have a Solaris box doing Tomcat with Apache on Linux via jk2 doing the Front-of-House).

Very clever, I thought. Only it doesn't work :-(...

Seems that as soon as the InterWiki matching happens, no further parsing/reparsing occurs to look for image inlining. Of course just linking to the image in the normal way still works, so its really not very serious -- more a kind of nice-to-have.


Just to bring it up again (dormant since from April 2005): It seems that fixing this problem should be relatively easy and would help us a great deal. We have a similar problem with images, images being handled by a separate upload service and serviced through a servlet. Please do fix this problem, I can not see why cascading the interwiki and the inline image parser could create a problem...

I increased the level of this bug, so that I would remember it better :). No reason, things just fall through cracks sometimes. It's quite a lot more probable that a feature goes in if someone develops a patch for it.

Oops, forgot to mark this fixed. Available in 2.3.49 onwards...
