#2111 closed change (fixed)

[CMS] Support links with target="_blank" in strings

Review URL(s):



Normally, foo <a href="bar">link</a> bas. is converted into a translatable string foo <a>link</a> bas. and referenced as $s123(bar)$ in the page source. However, this won't work with links that have target="_blank" attribute - these have to stay unchanged in the page source and break up strings unnecessarily.

What to change

Allow representing links that open in a new tab, e.g. by prepending them with a star: $s123(*bar)$. Then links with target="_blank" can be generated by the CMS, just like regular links.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

This was fixed by #2133, the default translation can now have any attributes on the <a> tag and these will be kept.

Implemented and working. Attributes are kept on links.
