Bug Report: Similar Directory Names
I've found a bug in the way CityDesk handles links between articles that have the same publish name, but are in different (but similarly named) directories. The steps to reproduce are:
Wow, I don't even know where to begin my wild speculation about the cause of this error!
This is a bug where some of the code that compares directory names is a little bit stupid. :)
I've been playing around with similar scenarios and it seems only when I do exactly what Darren said does it happen...
oh... it's a bug where something's stupid. makes perfect sense. =)
The code that replaces PTMFOG links with actual links compares two strings but does not check that they are the same length, so if one is a substring of the other it gets mixed up.
I'm only teasing you... I actually didn't mind the "it's something stupid" explanation. It's rare when the head of a company comes out and says there's some stupid code in their product.
I just had to smile when I read, "I've fixed it & you'll see the fix in the next version. "
