Unclosed transclusion eats next section in rendering, but not in section editing
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: zigger

has an unclosed transclusion in section 14, breaking rendering and
section-editing (from bug 2128 #c5).

Test case:

sec 1


sec 2


sec 3


The test page is rendered without most of section 2, including TOC (if there are
more sections) and section-numbering of edit-links. Editing section 3 then
brings up section 2.

Instead of removing it completely from the output.

Thanks Zigger for debugging the page!

The error described in bug 2128 #c5 refers to &oldid=155874 of
[[eo:Vikipedio:Trukoj/Plurnivela uzado de ŝablonoj]] .
Do not hesitate to revert to this version if you want to experience the
behaviour reported earlier.

The testcase from comment 0 is available at

It might be possible that this behavior could be detected if
"bug 662: Templates inside template parameters"
would be implemented.

The parser should see that the number of opening "{{" is not identical with the
number of "}}".

Anyhow it should be defined what should happen in such cases.

Please compare with
"''bug 885: silent insertion of code by the parser''"

Column Prototype
This is a very early prototype of a persistent column. It is not expected to work yet, and leaving it open will activate other new features which will break things. Press "\" (backslash) on your keyboard to close it now.
