References in templates are missing in VE
Closed, DuplicatePublic

Description

For example, see the list of references in https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia?veaction=edit. The reference 1 from read view, defined in the infobox, ("Für mehr siehe: Spezial:Statistik") is missing in VE, instead all other references are shifted by one, duplicating the reference mark "[1]" (once inside the infobox, once in the lead, which is "[2]" in read view).

This is especially awkward on pages with references only inside templates, like https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lycorin?veaction=edit. Though there are two references, VE claims that there are none.

[Note: I always thought this bug has been reported before, but I'm completely unable to find that previous report. So this might be a duplicate, but the original is hidden really well.]
