Description rogerhc 2012-11-14 18:54:22 UTC
Error observed on on November 14, 2012, time of this posting.

Edit page has a dropdown Edit help feature above the edit field. I think this is a WikiEditor feature called the Magic Bar. In that click the "Edit" drop down item (between "Special characters" and "Cite", towards right end of bar). At left of dropdown frame is now a scrollable selection area. Scroll to bottom of that and click on the item labeled "Discussion" in there. The two examples of signatures there under "What you get" in right column contain, above the expected example, this error message:

wikieditor-toolbar-help-content-signaturetimestamp-result: Parse error at position 19 in input: 

Hope this helps. Cheers, Roger

It also occurs at Thai Wikipedia.

Still valid.

3. Click    v Help
4. Scroll down to "Discussion"
5. Click it

See under "What you get":

and others.

This is not Firefox specific (I can reproduce it on Google Chrome 29.0.1547.62).

I installed the extension in my copy of MW and added the code
if( p === 'wikieditor-toolbar-help-content-signaturetimestamp-result' ){
	console.log( mw.loader.getState( 'mediawiki.jqueryMsg' ) );
right before the line "return mediaWiki.msg( p );" from the function $.wikiEditor.autoMsg[1]. After reloading the page a few times I noticed the following:
* Every time mediawiki.jqueryMsg was "ready" the error occurred
* Every time mediawiki.jqueryMsg was "loaded" there was no error

So, this bug (as well as bug 52479, and probably the one described on bug 51321 comment 12) only happens when the module "mediawiki.jqueryMsg" changes the behavior of the function "mediaWiki.msg" (also known as "mw.msg"). This shorthand is used by WikiEditor since 2010 (see r75491#115), but on
Change-Id: I0d220692262356a12e2f1c0ce30cf6f090428332
the format of the shorthand was modified from "plain" (which WikiEditor was using) to "text".

It is likely that using
return mediaWiki.message( p ).plain();
would solve this.
