Sorry about that. I think I should tell my brain to be more patient and careful before taking decisions. :-)

I saw this problem when I was editing an article in the app. I didn't think of searching about it because, I saw the red links correctly displayed in the edit preview and thought that they were not displayed only in certain cases. I didn't know the app doesn't detect red links.

It is only now I came to know that the article displayed in the app is very much different from the one shown in the edit preview.
