Parsoid does not emit different HTML when the page=# property is set on paged media (PDFs/DjVus/TIFFs)
Closed, ResolvedPublic


See a demo of the problem here.

On the sandbox wikipage, you can see that in the first image link, the first slide of the PDF is rendered as a thumbnail. In the second link, page 33 of the PDF is rendered.

But on the Flow page, if you try to paste [[File:....pdf|thumb|right|300px|page=33]], the link will be changed to [[File:....pdf|thumb|right|300px|]] on preview or save. The |page=33 is removed and the first page of the PDF is rendered.

Output below:

$ echo '[[File:Deploying and maintaining AI in a socio-technical system -- Research Showcase (August 2016).pdf|thumb|right|300px|page=33|xyz]]' | parse.js --useBatchAPI --fetchConfig false
<figure class="mw-halign-right" typeof="mw:Error mw:Image/Thumb" data-parsoid='{"optList":[{"ck":"thumbnail","ak":"thumb"},{"ck":"right","ak":"right"},{"ck":"width","ak":"300px"},{"ck":"page","ak":"page=33"},{"ck":"caption","ak":"xyz"}],"dsr":[0,134,2,2]}' data-mw='{"errors":[{"key":"api-error","message":{}}]}'><a href="./File:Deploying_and_maintaining_AI_in_a_socio-technical_system_--_Research_Showcase_(August_2016).pdf" data-parsoid='{"a":{"href":"./File:Deploying_and_maintaining_AI_in_a_socio-technical_system_--_Research_Showcase_(August_2016).pdf"},"sa":{},"dsr":[2,null,null,null]}'><img resource="./File:Deploying_and_maintaining_AI_in_a_socio-technical_system_--_Research_Showcase_(August_2016).pdf" src="./Special:FilePath/Deploying_and_maintaining_AI_in_a_socio-technical_system_--_Research_Showcase_(August_2016).pdf" height="300" width="300" data-parsoid='{"a":{"resource":"./File:Deploying_and_maintaining_AI_in_a_socio-technical_system_--_Research_Showcase_(August_2016).pdf","height":"300","width":"300"},"sa":{"resource":"File:Deploying and maintaining AI in a socio-technical system -- Research Showcase (August 2016).pdf"}}'/></a><figcaption data-parsoid='{"dsr":[null,132,null,null]}'>xyz</figcaption></figure>

So, Parsoid is clearly recording info about the page parameter. But, in a VE edit, the parameter is being lost. So, probably a html -> wt issue.
