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

Description

Author: zigger

Description:
The URL
http://eo.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vikipedio:Trukoj/Plurnivela_uzado_de_%C5%9Dablonoj
has an unclosed transclusion in section 14, breaking rendering and
section-editing (from bug 2128 #c5).

Test case:

sec 1

1st
{{stub|

sec 2

2nd
{{stub}}

sec 3

3rd

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.


Version: 1.4.x
Severity: normal
URL: http://eo.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Vikipedio:Trukoj/Plurnivela_uzado_de_%C5%9Dablonoj&oldid=155874

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

remark

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''"
