TitlesMultiselectWidget for Partial blocks suggests and accepts non-existent (aka redlink) pages
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimated Story Points

Description

The 'Pages' text input box suggests and accepts non-existent (aka redlink) pages (example). These are rejected on submission, but this is bad design.

Acceptance criteria

  • The error messages should continue to appear if the admin somehow manages to get these through
  • The 'Pages' input field should not suggest redlink pages
  • The 'Pages' input field should not accept redlink pages

I'm not familiar with the technical name for the unit that does it (sorry) but UploadWizard handles this when suggesting categories quite well, as does VisualEditor. Code probably lives somewhere therefore.

Thanks @jrbs! Luckily for us, this is a simple config change for our use of the widget.
