adding a strange field called 7 in IABot
Closed, InvalidPublic

Description

See this [https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?diff=prev&oldid=924975261 diff] and you will see IABot adding parameter called 7 with a null value into the {{tl|cite web}} use on each occasion. I checked the template definition and there is no parameter called 7.

I checked some other uses of IABot that I had recently made

and they seem to be OK

There is no bug here. 7 was defined in the template, but it wasn't visible. IABot simply made it visible. This can be avoided by removing extraneous pipes from the template.
