As you can see at http://twiki.org/cgi-bin/view/Plugins/SpreadSheetPlugin#FuncTODAY, the plugin cuts the header at the !! point and shows only the text after the double-exclamation point.

Heading text shown:
from one set of characters to another

Should show text:
TRANSLATE( text, from, to ) -- translate text from one set of characters to another

Source text:
---+++ TRANSLATE( text, from, to ) -- translate text!! from one set of characters to another

Also, this heading is not shown at all in the TOC; it should show:
TRANSLATE( text, from, to ) -- translate text

Once I disable the AutoSectionsPlugin, the header and TOC work as expected.

Test Case TOC:

Test Case Headers:

TODAY( ) -- serialized date of today at midnight GMT


TRANSLATE( text, from, to ) -- translate text from one set of characters to another


TRIM( text ) -- trim spaces from text

This test case does not show the issue because the AutoSectionsPlugin is not installed and enabled by default.

-- TWiki:Main.PeterThoeny - 2016-02-15

I cannot reproduce the symptom in my environment. This might be already fixed -- the plugin installed there is not the latest because TWiki:Plugins/AutoSectionsPlugin was not latest until I uploaded the latest a few min ago.

twiki.org has the latest version of AutoSectionsPlugin, it seems. Still it's showing the symptom mentioned above. Meanwhile, on my TWiki installation, I cannot reproduce the symptom both with our custom skin and the pattern skin.



-- TWiki:Main.HideyoImazu - 2016-07-28

I have fixed this bug and committed to svn (30221). It was due to the Auto-Sections detecting NOTOC part incorrectly. The symptom occurs only when Auto-Sections "edit" links are actually inserted.
