Description Zigger 2005-06-10 18:57:17 UTC
has an unclosed transclusion in section 14, breaking rendering and
section-editing (from bug 2128 #c5).

Test case:

==sec 1==
==sec 2==
==sec 3==

The test page is rendered without most of section 2, including TOC (if there are
more sections) and section-numbering of edit-links.  Editing section 3 then
brings up section 2.
Comment 1 Ævar Arnfjörð Bjarmason 2005-06-10 19:20:49 UTC
This is due to the way MediaWiki garbage collects invalid syntax, it should
probably just output a literal

==sec 2==

Instead of removing it completely from the output.
Comment 2 lɛʁi לערי ריינהארט 2005-06-10 23:07:51 UTC
Thanks Zigger for debugging the page!

The error described in bug 2128 #c5 refers to &oldid=155874 of
[[eo:Vikipedio:Trukoj/Plurnivela uzado de ŝablonoj]] .
Do not hesitate to revert to this version if you want to experience the
behaviour reported earlier.

The testcase from comment 0 is available at

It might be possible that this behavior could be detected if
"bug 662: Templates inside template parameters"
would be implemented.

The parser should see that the number of opening "{{" is not identical with the
number of "}}".

Anyhow it should be defined what should happen in such cases.

Please compare with
"''bug 885: silent insertion of code by the parser''"
