Currently renderWikiWordHandler is only consumed by SpacedWikiWordPlugin. But this plugin does not handle links inside double brackets.

Because renderWikiWordHandler is called from _handleWikiWord, WebHome will be rendered as Web Home, but [[WebHome]] remains unchanged.

By moving the call to internalLink bracket links are supported too.

For SpacedWikiWordPlugin I have created the following rules:

- Space out in case of TopicName, Web.TopicName, [[TopicName]]
- Do not space out in case of [[TopicName][TopicName]] or [[TopicName][SomeOtherName]]
that is: if an explicit link label is set: do no space out.

I figured it has to be determined by plugin authors if the link label should be rendered differently even if the topic author has used a specific link label. But search results not so clear-cut; what to do with [[$web.$topic][$topic]]?

Any decision is also valid for future rendering of underscore wikiwords.

IMHO [[$web.$topic][$topic]] is an explicit link; the $topic in the second [] should not be touched. If it's to be spaced out, then %SPACEOUT{}% needs to be called on it.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 20 Apr 2007

I tend to agree, but it might be cumbersome to have different instructions to create spaced out search results. And to have conditional rendering in topics like WebChanges.

Closed with Item3991 and Item3920.
