After upgrading to the latest version, one of the articles in my wiki (including some code samples) started showing this error:

[Liquid Syntax Error] Unknown tag 'autoescape'

I have 'autoescape' in some example code which is quoted in the article in < pre > tags. Where should I look for explanations?

The part which causes the error is most likely this one:

I've looked it up and judging by stack trace, it looks like Liquid Templating Language ( ) is used somewhere in chiliproject, and thinks it's its own command. It uses { % for control markup.

So I would guess that wiki code is not properly escaped before passing to template engine? Hard to say, I don't know ruby.

That's something Holger can better fix, as he did the liquid integration :-)

We use Liquid in ChiliProject as an additional logic layer on top of Textile since ChiliProject 3.0. Liquid uses the {{ foo }} and {% foo %} syntax for its functionality.

Liquid doesn't adhere to textile code or pre-blocks, as that would cripple the expressiveness of the language. If you want to include text that parses as liquid verbatim, you have to wrap that in liquid {% raw %} tags. At the end of the escaped block you then have to add an endraw tag (that I can't include here verbatim as that would still be parsed as liquid...

So basically you can write something like this, with the underscores replaced with percent characters:

{_ raw _} my stuff {_ endraw _}

You can learn more about Liquid at the respective wiki page.
