References in the section preview
Open, LowPublic

Description

As a Wikipedia editor I can see references in the section preview so that I can see what the reference number refers to.

See also T7984: Edit preview doesn't let you preview cite.php footnotes.
Show references while editing sections even when there is no <references/> tag in the section.

This was also requested in the 2013 technical wishes survey of the de-wiki community

If you need a gadget, that simply does the job, then you can try out this one. It's pretty cool, it works in most cases. Also - previewing page/section with it is much more faster.

This is now partially done with resolving T7984. It is still missing previews for references defined outside the section that is previewed (tracked in T124840).
