#12215 closed Bug (fixed)

Basepath resolution doesn't recognize semicolon as a query separator

ckeditor.js, line 5:


This regex unfortunately doesn't recognize URLs with semicolons like this one:


which can result in the correct basePath not being found and the editor not being displayed.

I propose changing the regex to:

Pushed branch:t/12215. I made some additional cleanup there because that code was outdated.

Branch t/12215 rebased onto master.

Cool thing that the code is getting more DRY with that code.


test CKEDITOR.basePath when used src="ckeditor.js;foo&bar"

  • I think that we should leave a feature request in Bender tracker, and link this request in the comment, marking it with a @todo:.
  • assert.areSame( CKEDITOR.basePath, CKEDITOR.basePath ); Source - Does it test anything?

test CKEDITOR.basePath when used src="ckeditor.js?foo&bar"

  • These vars looks like leftovers: defaultPath, iCKEDITOR not used in the code.
  • I feel like you wanted to use iCKEDITOR in this assertion

test CKEDITOR.basePath ckeditor.js src pattern

  • Question: How about renaming a() to something meaningful, like urlMatches() ?


  • What's the point of splitting these lines? It's a minified code anyway, it's not readable in any case.
  • We should remember about keeping comments in sync. There is one in edited function refering to basePath which you've removed in git:53d3032380
  • Question: Any idea why minified code was kept at the begining of the file? Maybe we can remove these comments too if this code is not needed?

  1. In both tests there should be iCKEDITOR on the right side - I fixed this.
  2. Next Bender version will be able to run the commented test.
  3. I removed the outdated comment - nice catch.
  4. The lines weren't split by me - Google Closure Compiler outputs that code in this format - I didn't want to change this, because it's time consuming.
  5. I don't know why there's that minified code and it's not part of the ticket to change this. These are leftovers from the v3 and they must be changed carefully. I even looked at this, but resigned because of unnecessary risk.
  6. I left the a() function - we use t() and a() functions in many places in tests to keep some obvious parts short.
