Hi. I believe it is more a "shortcut", than a "bug" : an easier but limited
alternative way to write the markup.
Should we modify PmWiki to make [[!CategoryLinks]] to have all features of
other links, we need to :
* either add a number of new markup rules that will do all possible link
features (parentheses, suffixes, |alt-text, |+ title, |# number);
this is if we wish to keep the different link format (css...) of the link,
* or process [[!Links]] like [[~Links]] which are rewritten and re-processed
later; much easier, but we lose the $LinkCategoryFmt customization,
* or another way I haven't figured out yet.
Comments from the community are welcome : which should we do, and should we at
all. A PITS entry with the discussion might be better than the mailing list
In case I now need to distribute pages linking to categories with alternative
link text, I'll probably use :
[[Category.Topic|link text]] or
The latter needing a PV declaration in recipe.php :
$FmtPV['$CategoryGroup'] = '$GLOBALS["CategoryGroup"]'; # untested
