#10931 closed Bug (fixed)

truncate_html_words doen't handle multi-line tags properly

Reported by: gsong Owned by: julien
Component: Template system Version: master
Severity: Normal Keywords: truncatewords_html
Cc: Triage Stage: Accepted
Has patch: yes Needs documentation: no
Needs tests: no Patch needs improvement: no
Easy pickings: no UI/UX: no


If you have the following in your HTML, for example:

<a class="offsite" href=

truncate_html_words will include all the words in the tag, as well as not close the tag properly if it needs to.

The attached patch simply adds the re.S flag for the two regular expressions used in the function.

Thanks so much for this. However, the tests for this should be unit tests, as we are moving away from doctests, especially for this type of thing, and especially as there are already unit tests for truncate_html_words in tests/regressiontests/utils/ Just add to the ones there already.
