Can't create a talk page for an unprefixed page
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT


Steps to replicate the issue (include links if applicable):

What happens?:

  • You are not allowed to edit it.

What should have happened instead?:

  • It should be possible to create the talk page for an existing template

It is possible to "circumvent" this by setting your test project to "(maintenance)" in the settings (provided by the Incubator extension), but this is not very intuitive, to say the least. When a page already exists, it should be possible to create its talk page regardless of what test project you belong to.

Software version (skip for WMF-hosted wikis like Wikipedia):

Other information (browser name/version, screenshots, etc.):

It seems that non-admin users cannot create it even if it is set to "(maintenance)". Permission error will be returned.

Oh, thanks for that information! It works for me when I do that, but that's probably because I also have the admin bit. But even for me, as an admin, I have to change the test project to be able to create those pages, which is not ideal.
