VisualEditor: <nowiki> tags not deleted when surrounding element or text is deleted
Closed, ResolvedPublic


User Atethnekos at en.wp reports:
"If in the source code there is <<nowwiki/>blockquote>, and in VE I select "<blockquote>" and delete it, when I save the <nowiki/> is left behind in the source code."

See for an example in by sandbox. Further testing shows that it also happens with other tags and even with plain text:

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

bzimport set Reference to bz51950.

This is the same as bug 47678, which now fixed in some code we created this week, but unfortunately that has an issue, bug 51948 which is preventing wider deployment. Hopefully we'll get that fixed next 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.
