Additional information to the last commit message:

  • the first patch (2012-03-07) works only well, if the page not contains a "related page" section.

  • I add 3 small UnitTest

    • one with a small page, like the bug description from (2012-03-07)
    • one with a project, that contains a "related page" section
    • one with a project, that contains a "modules page"
  • The new path (2012-03-11 12:52) works well with all 3 tests. The old patch works only well with the first
