Description Bergi 2010-06-23 15:59:27 UTC
I caused (no, I found :-) a cite Error "No text for reference with name x". The [[:de:MediaWiki:Cite error references no text|German errormessage]] includes a hidden link to a service page (to be found by the linklist), when you use it in the user namespace. Now this link exist in the database (it is found in the linklist), but it isn't parsed correctly in the page. The usual <a href... -tag is escaped to &lt;a href... before it is written to the document!
Its not a big matter because you can't see it anyway, but might it be an error to all wikilinks in these errormessages?
Another example can be found here: [[:de:Benutzer:Netopyr#Einzelnachweise_.28mit_gewolltem_Referenzfehler.21.29]]
Comment 1 Platonides 2010-06-23 16:35:58 UTC
It seems double parsed somwhere. Also, adding a link to MediaWiki:Cite error refs without references produces a link placeholder.
Comment 2 Bergi 2010-06-24 18:27:05 UTC
Yes, I thougt about that, but as being no admin I couldn't test it.
Comment 3 Gadget850 2010-07-30 09:44:59 UTC
See bug 17865— "MediaWiki:Cite error references no text" does not parse wikilinks or external links.
