In Item1307 Sven stated that he would like to have summaries with working links. This is a useful enhancement. Hence:

Add a new render token to $summary() in FormattedSearch. Documentation:

$summary(render) Formatted topic summary, with text containing emphasis and links

We cannot change the current spec of plain text summary since this would break some existing TWiki applications out there. Many things can go wrong if $summary suddenly returns formatted text instead of plain text, for example:
  • if feeding into a form field without URL encoding the summary, user gets gibberish (there is no need to URL encode plain text summary). (Example bug Item1375, "Not URL encoded search parameter" is not a related TWiki app example, but it could well be)
  • if sending inside an XML tag to another app, it breaks the DTD, and might break the app on the other side
  • if a script sends a plain text e-mail with topic summary, user gets gibberish

Deferred to Edinburgh (unless already implemented / need to be enabled simply with new render token).

Please drive responsibly and safely!
