Template editor should allow rich/wysiwig/visual editing for content
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Ran into this trying to switch the quote formatting on https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1924_vote_of_no_confidence_against_the_government_of_Stanley_Baldwin?veaction=edit to use {{quote}}

Many templates such as [[Template:Quote]] are basically wrappers around some additional wikitext.

The template content editor is not wysiwig, and seems to contain a plain text box. This means that any formatting is lost when cut-and-pasting text from the main document into the template's content.

If another rich editor were embedded here, we should be able to paste in things with links, references, etc.

This is the same as bug 50182; we definitely will support this soon.

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.
