Dollar signs and links won't work in my installation

(Caue Rego) #1

Add a dollar sign outside square brackets, like this $. Then try to link with a dollar sign in it $. It won’t work…

At least in my other discourse forums ( updated and hosted by ), it doesn’t. No idea why.

That is at least 907 commits behind current master… looks like you’re overdue for an upgrade. :wink:

Very fair, over 2 months old indeed! :slight_smile:

I’ve actually had another instance outdated which had the bug and it went away when updated.

Now I just wonder in which commit this issue was already solved… Probably not in the only two ones related with markdown issues. Out of curiosity, how could I find it remotely with basically no knowledge of the repository?


see this answer here: How to search for a commit message on GitHub? - Stack Overflow

So maybe you can use /tmp for a throw-away repo:

$ cd /tmp
$ git clone
$ cd discourse
$ git log --grep="Your search query"

Quite helpful is also git’s comprehensive documentation which is available with

$ git help log

Or just use it online: Git - git-log Documentation

It is quite effective in finding commits, so give it a try. :blush:
