Error handling for "extends" parameter
Open, NormalPublic

Description

There are two errors that might occur. In both cases an error message should be shown.

  1. Extends points to a reference, that cannot be found (e.g. does not exist, not yet defined).
  2. Extending more than one level.

Background
The wish to improve the referencing of multiple parts of the same source was part of the German-speaking community's technical wishlist in 2013, 2015 and of the international technical wishlist in 2015. For more info, see T100645.

Is there any mechanism to show error messages? As far as I am concerned, if you do an edit and save it you are directed to the view of the rendered text again.
If you leave any bracket open or whatever else, I assume that the wikitext will just be saved now. (CC @Tobi_WMDE_SW , @thiemowmde )

There is, look:

But beware of T168719: Cite error messages are not shown in User namespace if UI language is English.

@Lea_WMDE shall we build this on the existing solution as shown above? Or did you have something else in mind with "Error Message"?
