Summary0023738: Mantis issue links displayed as raw HTML in code block


I created an issue which included a stack trace where each line was indented by four spaces to trigger a markdown code block.

The stack trace includes #nnn sequences which can either be IL offsets or line numbers. Unfortunately MantisBT treats these as issue links and create hyperlinks if it notices that a matching issue is found. When looking at one of these issues I noticed that the transform is also happening to the markdown code blocks, meaning raw HTML is displayed.

For example

at System.Collections.Hashtable.rehash(Int32, Boolean) #_7

Is rendered as

at System.Collections.Hashtable.rehash(Int32, Boolean) <a href="/view.php?id=7" title="[closed] issuetitlegoeshere" class="resolved">0000007</a>

(Note I I stuck an underscore in the first example line in case it triggers the generation of a link on this instance too)

Steps To Reproduce

Create an issue similar to the following

Logged occurrence filling the `LinksListView` control hosted in the `WebsiteLinksDialog`

    at System.Collections.Hashtable.rehash(Int32, Boolean) #7
    at System.Collections.Hashtable.expand() #14
    at System.Collections.Hashtable.Insert(System.Object, System.Object, Boolean) #38
    at System.Collections.Hashtable.Add(System.Object, System.Object)
    at System.Windows.Forms.ListView.InsertItems(Int32, System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem[], Boolean) #290
    at System.Windows.Forms.ListView.ApplyUpdateCachedItems() #68
    at System.Windows.Forms.ListView.EndUpdate() #37
    at Cyotek.Web.Crawler.Ui.LinksListView.() #120
    at Cyotek.Web.Crawler.Ui.LinksListView.Bind(System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable`1[Cyotek.Web.Crawler.LinkInfo])
    at Cyotek.Web.Crawler.Ui.WebsiteLinksDialog.()
    at Cyotek.Web.Crawler.Ui.WebsiteLinksDialog.OnLoad(System.EventArgs)
Additional Information

I have included a screenshot shown the full example.

I'm a couple of versions out, I find upgrading a bit of a fiddly process - I'll get the instance updated to the latest version presently and update this ticket if anything changes.

I'm not able to edit the issue, but I see that my example in Steps To Reproduce is being rendered the "corrupt" way - I probably should have stuck underscores between the # and digits there too.
