Description

Author: Daedalus969

Description:
The semicolon, inserted in wikilinks messes up the surrounding text, as it bolds it and discounts the semicolon. It should only do this when it is obviously used for a title, otherwise it messes up templates, like the one linked, when a signature contains a semicolon. Alternatively, one could try disallowing it's usage in signatures.

This is happening because of (simplified) {{ucfirst:{{{1}}}}}, this causes a parser function to start a line with a formatting character (semicolon in example given). This is bug 12974 (duping).

The particular template in question uses ucfirst several places unnecessarily (and the one necessary place is in a category link, and there is a work around: {{ucfirst: {{{1}}}}}). I'll ask a sysop to fixit.

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
