Description Amit Shah 2010-07-28 11:59:32 UTC
Description of problem:

Strings like bz 111, bz #111, bug #111 are commonly found but don't get auto-hyperlinks to the bug. Only usage like bug 111 seems to work.

Comment 1 Amit Shah 2010-07-28 12:01:05 UTC
Well bug #111 does work :-)

There's also: bugzilla 111 that can be linked.

Comment 2 David Lawrence 2010-07-29 04:20:38 UTC
We will see what can be done to add this. Currently Bugzilla is hard coded to only look for the word 'bug' with a integer following. the # is optional.
