VisualEditor: Make some way to display display-less content (e.g. silent transclusions like {{lowercase title}})
Closed, ResolvedPublic

If a template has no output (such as https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Template:Lowercase_title), it has no visible output and becomes very easy to silently remove using VisualEditor.

I don't see how this is an enhancement request. It's trivial to accidentally remove a template that has no output, resulting in damage to the page (irreversible damage in the context of using only VisualEditor).

Is this the same as bug 49806? (I know that's newer but it has a lot more discussion)

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.
