Special:ExpandTemplates not correctly expanding templates
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: nvervelle


I first saw this problem in the API (see http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/API:Expanding_templates_and_rendering ), but the problem is also present for Special:ExpandTemplates

  • expandtemplates seems to work for only one level of templates (templates inside templates are not expanded)
  • expandtemplates doesn't take into account <includeonly> or <noinclude>

For example, on the French Wikipedia, [http://fr.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=expandtemplates&text=%7B%7Be%7D%7D expandtemplates] for [[:fr:Template:e|<nowiki>{{e}}</nowiki>]] gives <nowiki><includeonly>{{exp|e}}</includeonly><noinclude>

Version: unspecified
Severity: minor

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
