it looks like some information in the jspwiki.properties file are not processed correctly.

The properties jspwiki.applicationName and jspwiki.frontPage work fine, after a restart I can see the new appliation name and the changed front page.

Other properties work only partial; they are correctly shown on the System page via the wiki variables, but the wiki jsps are not using the infos correctly. This are for example:

  • jspwiki.translatorReader.allowHTML: The variable shows true, but html is printed "as is".
  • jspwiki.breakTitleWithSpaces: The variable shows true, but the titles have no spaces.
  • jspwiki.templateDir: It is always the default template that is used. Other templates work only if I rename there directory to default.

This is quite strange. Could you set your log level to DEBUG and dig a bit further? At least they seem to work nicely for me. BTW, please make sure you don't add any extra spaces after the values - that might confuse the Java property parser.

I was suffering from the same problem after upgrading from 2.0.x to 2.2.28, however, it seemed to happen only with jspwiki.translatorReader.allowHTML.

Since I could not find anything suspect after a few trials, I deleted the line in the jspwiki.properties file and re-typed it as is, then restarted my web engine. As silly as it may sound, it did the job. I may be wrong but it might be related to the file encoding (at install time) but since the system info page shows the right value, the only think I can think of is the initial caching of pages (I use the default one).

Here's the steps I did that may help reproduce:

  • Installed JSPWiki 2.2.28 on a Tomcat 5 (Linux) as a WAR file.
  • Ran Install.jsp and pointed the repository to my existing JSPWiki files.
  • Tried it. Noticed allowHTML was off.
  • Edited the jspwiki.properties, turned allowHTML to true. Restarted the server.
  • HTML on page still shows as is, and the option seems to be ignored.
  • Changed the value a few times, got rid of spaces, restarted. No result.
  • Deleted the line in the property file, re-typed it. Restarted the server.
  • Problem gone.

Hope this helps.

I have a nagging suspicion that this had something to do with the properties having spaces in them. Should be fixed in current 2.3 series.
