We have recently disabled JIRA emoticons using the details from this issue:
However, there doesn't seem to be a corresponding option in Crucible.
Does anyone know of a way to remove the emoticons support in Crucible as for technical details it has a very negative impact on key information being provided and looks unprofessional.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to disable it at the "objectives" field as the wiki-markup was not implemented in the same way as in JIRA. Instead of XML, the settings are all hard-coded in the Java code.
I've updated the Improvement Request so it can contain all the places that need to be covered (commit messages and review objectives).
When you say "default" you mean the option under: Admin >> Defaults >> Commit Messages?
This option is used only if the repository didn't have its configuration customized under: Repositories >> click on the repository >> Commit Messages
Is this the case? The repo still has its "Use the system default settings for commit message syntax" option checked and the emoticons are being displayed at the activity stream? If so, please let me know what repo model you are using. I would like to try to reproduce the proplem locally.
Because of the way that the wiki markup in FeCru was implemented, it is not possible to disable only part of it (emoticons).
The only way to disable the emoticons would be to disable wiki markup for the repository (Admin console >> Repositories >> click on the repository >> Commit Messages >> select "Plain Text" in the list box).
I've created the following Improvement Request so that we can have this considered:
Please vote on this issue and add it to your JIRA watch list for future updates.
