I wanted to use the following in our redmine’s welcome text:

... please contact the "system administrator" ...

This doesn’t work, "system administrator" is not turned into a mailto: link as expected. It does work with an http:// URL.

I also tried it in a wiki page and it’s the same there.

I think that this used to work. I’m pretty sure I put that text in when we originally installed redmine, and it worked as expected then, so this might be a regression.

Allow textile mailto links (#3127).


#1 Updated by Jerry Hilts about 12 years ago

Just noticed this as well.

It definitely did work correctly in the past.

#2 Updated by Marc Liyanage about 12 years ago

I should mention that I updated from 0.8.0 directly to 0.8.3 so it could have been introduced anywhere in between, unless others can confirm that it worked in 0.8.1 or 0.8.2.

#3 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang about 12 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • Target version set to 0.8.4
  • Resolution set to Fixed

Fixed in r2664.

I didn't try this kind of link before but it could have worked. Maybe it was broken by some refactoring that was done to prevent XSS attacks.
A test is now included (r2665) so that it doesn't break in the future.

#4 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang almost 12 years ago

  • Status changed from Resolved to Closed

Merged in 0.8-stable in r2681.
