Parser breaks on character combination in parameter value in a template call
Open, Needs TriagePublicBUG REPORT


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

  • Take an arbitrary template, for example "Template:!"
  • Transclude the template, and supply the value "-{" as either an anonymous or named parameter

See the examples at: the Semantic MediaWiki sandbox wiki.

What happens?:

The template is not transcluded, and the call to the template is rendered as plaintext (the parser fails to parse the template call).

What should have happened instead?:

The transclusion should have succeeded; the pipe-symbol should have been rendered instead of the template call.
