RTL with LTR in edit summaries breaks
Open, LowPublic


When the edit summary contains both RTL and LTR it breaks. Se for example where it becomes

(‎Page moved from [fawiki:ملت شاد (ایس آو بیس)] to [fawiki:ملت شاد (ترانه)])

The parenthesis are wrong (but they are correctly showed in the site links). The problem was discovered through the watchlist on Wikipedia.

  1. This works based on user language, not sitelang (e.g uselang can workaround it: )
  2. Setting the directionality should be to the sitelang without the site prefix e.g [[fa:<span dir="rtl">FATITLE</span>]]
