Since some time this early afternoon (after 15:00 German time, 13:00 UTC) the
templates [[Vorlage:Quelle1]] and [[Vorlage:Quelle2]] on de.wikinews.org are
showing a different behaviour than before. I suspect a connection to the fix for
Bug #3526 mentioned on
http://cia.navi.cx/stats/project/mediawiki/.message/6086613. Somebody mentioned
to me the preferences page changed today, so I suspect this change was uploaded
today as well.
But back to the problem: Both these templates used to list sources contain just
one line with a list itme, something like
* This is a list item
They take a number of parameters so they are often separated by an empty line to
make the wikitext more readable. So far this empty line behaved just like the
empty line between two list items.
However now any empty line before the templates is rendered as "<p><br></p>",
creating big gaps. See my demonstration page at
The test page and the templates are deleted, so make this as invalid, because it is impossible to reproduce.
