Description Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2010-06-16 22:01:46 UTC
Expected behavior: Page title is 'User:HappyDog'
Actual behaviour: Page title is 'Special:Newpages/limit=10'

Many apologies for the vague nature of this bug report, but I have no idea where the bug is here.  It could be a MW bug, something specific to, or even something to do with the markup on my user page.  All I know is that this didn't used to be a problem, and now it is, and my page has not been edited in the meantime.

Tweaked summary, was able to replicate on my userpage on, can't replicate in trunk.
Comment 2 Mark Clements (HappyDog) 2010-06-16 22:09:47 UTC
Have done a bit more digging and discovered the following:

Clicking 'edit' on the page gives the correct page title.  However, clicking 'show preview' gives the incorrect title.

Removing the transclusion, {{Special:Newpages/limit=10}}, from the page markup gives the correct page title on 'show preview', so I'm guessing it's a problem with this transclusion (though I haven't tested saving this).
