Description

Is it a bug or a feature, that truncates the output of strings after a pipe symbol?
Example to illustrate: /lib/prefs/feature, line 2425:

'feature_wiki_argvariable' => [
			'name' => tra('Wiki argument variables'),
			'description' => tra('Allow writing request variables in wiki content using  or  - special case  '),
			'type' => 'flag',
			'help' => 'Advanced+Wiki+Syntax+usage+examples',
			'default' => 'n',
			'keywords' => 'arg var vars',
		],


The output of this descriptions stops at the pipe symbol between paramname and default, supposedly in all languages, including English. I cannot translate into German with this entry in custom.php:

"Allow writing request variables in wiki content using  or  - special case  " => "Argumentvariablen innerhalb von Wiki-Inhalten mit  oder  erlauben - Sonderfall  ",

but when I replace the pipe with a slash, all is well:

"Allow writing request variables in wiki content using  or  - special case  " => "Argumentvariablen innerhalb von Wiki-Inhalten mit  oder {{paramname/standard}} erlauben - Sonderfall  ",

So please check whether this is a bug or a feature of tra(), and depending on this check either fix it or change in English this description, to use text without a pipe.

Side remark: The pipe doesn't show here, just as the the arguments in double curly braces! Although I enclosed my code sample in CODE tags!

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
