Internal link has 'external' class
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

When you visit a non-existent page, Monin_(company), for example, you'll see this text in the body:

Search for "Monin (company)" in existing articles.

When you inspect the link, it has an 'external' class, even though the link is pointing to the same wiki. The external class should not be there.

[noarticletext uses an internal link by default in MediaWiki in the English translation.](https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/source/mediawiki/browse/master/languages/i18n/en.json$691)
If some websites decided to locally override that text, then it's up to those websites (and their community) to potentially fix that themselves.

Turns out wikilink cannot be used in this case, that's why the template was forced to use the external link syntax.
