Autolinking Checkboxes

Description

Some of the selections get skipped in the linking process when outputting checkboxes as links. I hoped it was related to having special characters like the other problem I still have with autolinking. But it's just randomly picking selections from the list and not making them links.

You can see it at the bottom of:

Those particular selections get skipped no matter which profile they are attached to.

  • Keywords 2nd-opinion added
  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to Future Release
  • Type changed from defect (bug) to enhancement

It's not random. It's something close to "expected" behavior, though I agree it's lousy. It won't link anything longer than 5 words long. See https://buddypress.trac.wordpress.org/browser/tags/2.9.2/src/bp-xprofile/bp-xprofile-filters.php?marks=380#L345

Perhaps checkbox/radio/etc items should be linked in full, no matter how long they are. This would take some thought to figure out.

In the meantime, you can unhook our function and hook your own version in its place, which would have a higher (or no) limit on word count.
