Remove image autocomplete for File parameters from test instance
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

In T260886 (patch I7a114e2) we enabled the showImages feature of the existing TitleInputWidget for template parameters with the type wiki-file-name. This got merged and is already live on production.

We see the following reasons to possibly remove this suggester again:

  1. It looks like it can't fine images that are on Commons. If this is the case, the suggester is more misleading than helpful. Or is this only an issue on our test server?
  2. It distracts from our other improvements, most notably T260886: VE Dialog on the Test Instance: Add media selector, and possibly T260803.

Not urgent. Investigate and decide.

Update: it does find images from commons

It appears WMDE is working on this, so there is no action for the Editing team and we will not pull it on to our workboard.

I see results from commons on the test instance, but only with the namespace and under mysterious circumstances. This is broken behavior...
