VisualEditor: Links created in the userspace are treated as links to subpages
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

If I open the VisualEditor and add a link to say, "Edward Coke (politician)" in my sandbox, and then right click on the link and open it in a new tab, it takes me to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Okeyes_%28WMF%29/Edward_Coke_%28politician%29

This seems somewhat suboptimal.

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.
