VisualEditor: Window title changed to "Parse error at position 0 in input {{"}}{{{1|$1}}}{{"}}" on some pages


The browser window title is changed to "Parse error at position 0 in input {{"}}{{{1|$1}}}{{"}}" when editing an article with the VisualEditor on dewp. Reproducible in many articles and at least Firefox and Chromium.

This seems to be caused by the templates in [[de:MediaWiki:Editing]].

Can be seen on testwiki as well, where parser functions are the cause ([[testwiki:MediaWiki:Editing]]).

This seems solved now on dewp. Good to close from my side.

This is still an issue. I've restored MediaWiki:Editing on testwiki for demonstration purposes.

Krinkle has stated "Don't use wikitext in this message" (MediaWiki:Editing), but he didn't give a reason. Since parser functions, etc. work fine in this message in MediaWiki core, I think we should expect VE to handle them too, or else it should use a different message that specifically does not support fancy stuff.

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.
