Regression: Page Previews removes titles of all wikilinks, not just articles'
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

(Via @SerDIDG)
Recently Page Previews has started removing the title attribute of all wikilinks, not just those of article namespace pages. This has broken the work of several gadgets in Russian Wikipedia, including the highly popular gadget showing user flags and the gadget handling featured article links. They rely on link titles in their workings.
