linkmaps display the file name instead of the pagetitle, showing unsightly underscore escapes and underscores instead of blanks to users.
the attached patch fixes this; from its commit message:
display the pagetitle() in linkmaps without this patch, linkmaps display underscores and underscore escape sequences in the rendered output. this introduces a pageescape function, which invoces pagetitle() to get rid of underscore escapes and wraps the resulting utf8 string appropriately for inclusion in a dot file (using dot's html encoding because it can represent the '\"' dyad properly, and because it doesn't need special-casing of newlines).
the output will look much better (at least in my wikis) with the "pagetitle function does not respect meta titles" issue fixed.
I don't think it's correct for
[[!meta title]]though, as discussed on the linked bug: it appears in an assortment of contexts where the full formal title of the page seems inappropriate. If you want linkmap to use
[[!meta title]], I think it would be better to give it a
[[!map ]]has? --smcv
sounds good; i'll have a look at it the next time i touch the linkmap plugin. the patch at hand would be a starting point for that. --chrysn
