Can't always close VE welcome prompt
Open, Needs TriagePublic


A niche bug - attempting to create a &redlink=1 page that is protected from creation on a wiki on which you have not edited before, but which you *can* create (e.g. with the staff userright), means the "Welcome to Wikipedia" VisualEditor prompt is not closable. The buttons don't work at all.

Screenshot of the issue (on svwp with Google Translate enabled on Chrome, which may or may not be effecting things):

I'm on MacOS 10.12.6, Chrome Version 60.0.3112.113 (Official Build) (64-bit).

@jrbs Can you give a link to the page in question?

This is the link I followed to get this error (I had not edited on svwp previously, but could in theory create the page with my +staff):
