Description Platonides 2006-06-22 21:24:23 UTC
When editing a page, headers set at MediaWiki:edittools and MediaWiki:yourdiff
show an edit link.

They are incorrect because:
a) You can't edit the interface this way
b) It show an edit link to the current editting article, section 1 (section
numbering in the ''interface template'')

They should disappear

Note: This bug seems recent, it has probably been introduced in a recent parser

This doesn't seem to have ever been thoroughly fixed. MediaWiki:edittools isn't showing section edit links, but it showing the ToC if it has enough headings; some other messages apparently show the edit links, though (see bug 48639).

This was apparently partially fixed in bug 36975? CC-ing code committers from that bug.
Comment 5 Nick White 2013-05-23 10:16:47 UTC
The fix in bug 36975 certainly works fine for my issue; edit links being shown from msgWiki() and similar calls.
Comment 6 Bartosz Dziewoński 2013-10-16 14:19:40 UTC
Possibly relevant patch:
