Literal figure tags emitted for some VE edits
Closed, DuplicatePublic1 Story Points


Looks like some edits (1, 2, 3) among others are leaving behind literal <figure> tags and bad image markup.

Example #2 there also shows this other bit: <span data-ve-clipboard-key="0.0031113242600965263-1"> </span> which indicates that this might potentially be related to copy-paste? Or is this unrelated?

Definitely copy and paste with that span - but hard to reproduce. Could be a browser plugin too.

Kibana dashboard shows the log entries where Parsoid encountered a bare "a -> img" tag outside a <figure> tag. I discovered the bug by looking at the revisions where the edits occurred. So, could be a browser plugin, but adding the link here in case it helps you with debugging.
