Render wiki links in property fields with type text?
> as that for italic or bold, is often not rendered by the datatables format." Does this include basic wiki links?
The datatables format is to facilitate the query-API, which means any extra parsing has to be implemented on top if it. I can't remember but I think the JSON output does not render HTML and instead uses the wikitext source to be deployed to a client which means you have to render those links after it has been received by the client (in JS).
I personally don't have time to look at those things but anyone is welcome to send patches to the SRF repo to be reviewed.
