Comment 1 Roan Kattouw 2010-01-22 20:17:26 UTC
Changing summary, this has nothing to do with the NTOC. The error is thrown by the Cite extension because a <references /> tag needs to be present for <ref> tags for work.
Comment 2 Trevor Parscal 2010-01-26 00:27:34 UTC
It's not clear that we will ever do this. It's certainly not a bug in wikiEditor. If anything, the Cite extension should append a <references /> tag at the end automatically rather than giving the user an error.
Comment 3 Calcey QA 2010-02-24 06:12:36 UTC
Closing the defect as per comment 2
