New WikiText Editor fails when trying to edit articles with editintros
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points

Description

If I enable the new WikiText Editor on English Wikipedia and click the "edit" tab on the Barack Obama article, it does nothing (besides changing the URL). I don't get an editing interface or an error (even in the console). It just continues to show the Barack Obama article as if nothing had happened.

It's loading for me, not sure if I am missing any step here.

@Ryasmeen: I don't know how you got to that URL. If you click the edit button, it should have sent you to:
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Barack_Obama&editintro=Template%3ABLP_editintro&veaction=editsource
...not...
https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Barack_Obama&veaction=editsource
Maybe you have some special gadget installed that strips editintro templates?

Ah yeah, I had FormWizard enabled. I can reproduce it now after disabling that gadget.

NB Actually supporting editintro's in VE is T56029.
