Updated: Comment #N


Now that we have block categories on the block listing page it doesn't make sense to prefix views blocks with 'View:'

Proposed resolution

Remove this hardcoded prefix from the block admin_label created in the ViewsBlock derivative class.

Remaining tasks

Patch, review, etc...

User interface changes

'View:' prefix will disappear from views blocks in block UI listings

API changes

If this passes, we should add tests. Especially for that if/else for the display being appended.

I'm pretty sure the title is not being tested currently. Not explicitly anyway.

The last submitted patch, db.viewsBlock-remove-prefix.patch, failed testing.

Drupal\block\Tests\Views\DisplayBlockTest failing is good enough for me (and that's not the only one)

Let's remove t seems redundant anyways. :)

Does someone understand why/whether the label is escaped on $view->label() already?

damiankloip’s picture

I guess it's totally not, just comes directly from the property.

dawehner’s picture

Maybe the description is escaped later?

damiankloip’s picture

Well, I think the BlockListController will escape it before rendering. Is that what you mean?

tim.plunkett’s picture

Yes these are assumed to be unescaped by the block list (and elsewhere), we explicitly call check_plain in those places

Agree that DisplayBlockTest covers this.
