Description CBM 2008-05-06 23:34:32 UTC
If you try to edit section 0 of an empty page, a "no such section" error is returned.
Comment 1 Siebrand Mazeland 2008-08-17 22:55:14 UTC
Tested with 1.14-svn (r39529). WORKSFORME. Sample URL:
Comment 2 CBM 2008-08-18 00:20:59 UTC
I'm sorry; my report was slightly unclear. The error is with pages that do exist but have 0 bytes of content. In such a page, the entire page (which  has no content) is section 0, so editing section 0 should work. However, the 'nosuchsectiontext' error message is displayed instead. I have just tested this again on enwiki.

Reproduced on prototype:
Comment 5 Siebrand Mazeland 2011-01-22 12:33:44 UTC
Strange. Comment 1 is also still true.
Comment 6 CBM 2011-01-23 13:13:09 UTC
Comment 1 is still not looking at the right problem, though. This link fails on the live software on enwiki:
Comment 7 Jarry1250 2011-03-19 22:59:36 UTC
Created attachment 8316 [details]
Patch v1

I think this should be sufficient? It seems to fix the issue for me on my test wiki, anyway. Regards.
