Imagemap double-escapes URL and title in external links
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

A fullurl used inside the #tag parser function (see URL) causes &action=edit to become &action=edit, which has been banned on WMF wikis. (Thus, the product classification; I don't think this would cause an issue elsewhere.)

It has nothing to do with #tag or the new preprocessor. <imagemap> has been broken for external links with ampersands since the external link feature was introduced last April.

Fixed in r30178.

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.
