Description Melancholie 2009-09-18 09:11:09 UTC
404 pages are invalid, <br> tags are not closed (<br />); monobook sidebar gets moved down.

[[wikt:de:Wiktionmary:Eintrag_erstellen]] (HTML line 114: <td><br>)

Original source code (non-404, working):
[[wikt:de:MediaWiki:Noarticletext/]] (contains |<br>)

Is HTML tidy or similar broken for 404 pages?
Comment 1 Melancholie 2009-09-18 09:22:48 UTC
Note that I need to fix [[wikt:de:MediaWiki:Noarticletext/]], cannot wait.

Feel free to revert the change for a moment if you want to check or test it.
But this should be reproduceable on a local wiki too, of course. ;-)
Comment 2 Melancholie 2009-09-18 09:26:53 UTC
Oops, <br> wasn't the reason (I already wondered myself).

It was a missing closing </div> tag:

The question now is: Why did it work for years, but now not anymore?

It seems that on [[wikt:de:MediaWiki:Noarticletext/]] a </div> tag had been added (HTML tidy?), but not for 404 pages anymore.
Comment 3 Melancholie 2009-09-18 09:31:36 UTC
To be clear: HTML tidy (or whatever) works for [[wikt:de:MediaWiki:Noarticletext/]] and all other 'existing' pages. It just adds the missing "</div>" tag.

But not for 404 pages (using [[MediaWiki:Noarticletext]] as basis); although it once did.
Comment 4 Brion Vibber 2009-09-18 22:35:54 UTC
Tidy isn't used on UI messages as an optimization. Make sure the message text is correct.
Comment 5 Melancholie 2009-09-21 09:20:26 UTC
Hmm, that's perfectly ok, but the weird thing is that it did work very well until shortly.
But maybe anything else has changed that now just causes the move down of the sidebar in those cases.

If you do not see any other reason, feel free to close this bug (as the actual bug was fixed on-wiki).
