VisualEditor: "Error saving data to server" but actually successful, and spurious diff
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

I twice got the error alert box when saving. However, it turns out that it did save both times. The first time, it did the intended edit (https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Participants_in_World_War_II&diff=562174851&oldid=561500927). The second time, it did a dirty diff for a pipe character (&#124; -> <nowiki>|</nowiki>) in a section of the page I didn't edit.

We have tweaked the time-out code so this shouldn't happen in future; sorry for the disruption. Please re-open if it recurs…

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.
