bug 51992 comment 0 :
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Kww/fileref is about as simple of a testcase
as I could develop. Given this structure:

[[File:Red Wine Glass.jpg|thumb|upright|A "large" (250 ml) glass of
12% ABV red wine has about three units of alcohol. A "medium"
(175&nbsp;ml) glass, such as the one shown, has about two units.<ref> Even
though the sizes of wine glasses are defined in UK law, the terms "large",
"medium", "standard" etc are not defined in law.</ref>]]

There's no way to edit the reference.

Simpler illustration, still in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Kww/fileref

I don't think it's possible to edit that pesky footnote.

Changing this to reflect that now references do appear in the toolbar for media items, but can't be inserted or edited (and the list of existing references to insert is blank - suggests something's pointed at the wrong document/etc.?).

This was completed as part of the NewFromDocumentReplace work that Roan did last week.

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.
