API action=edit allows creation of illegal page names
Closed, ResolvedPublic


While submitting "title=wikt:en:Wikipedia:Sandbox" via the API, the page was created and shown as [[en:Wikipedia:Sandbox]], and cannot be deleted in normal ways except use the API again.

Maybe these "interwiki" request should be denied?

Created attachment 6754
If the title is "external" interwiki, die with invalidtitle

Deny editing (and therefore creation) of bugs with interwiki in title
