Can't edit a page in frwiki (whilte it's possible on desktop)
Closed, DuplicatePublic1 Estimated Story Points



If I open the page "Guernica (Picasso)" in the Wikipedia beta app, I can't edit it ("You don't have the permission to edit..."), even if I'm logged in (the page is semi-protected). However, it works on the stable release and on desktop.

However, the api returns editable true:

    "mobileview": {
        "sections": [],
        "editable": true

Same problem with all other semi protected pages, such as :

I can edit them in my browser, but not with the "Wikipedia beta" Android app.

@ElComandante Can you try logging out and log in again in the app (and refresh the article)?

@Dbrant: For completeness: I already did that, as well as deleting the data (and therefore the cache to) from the app, logging in again and open the page "the first time" again. Always with the same behaviour.
