VisualEditor: adding section for references will suppress the Related Articles one
Closed, ResolvedPublic


See .

When creating a section for references and adding the relevant tag,
it will suppress the Related Articles section - just the heading, not the content.

I reproduced it easily in my sandbox by just adding the contents that you can see in the diff above.
Note that it is not related to the reference being added in the same edit; here for instance it was added previously.

I've attempted to reproduce the two test cases in a sandbox on the Italian Wikipedia. In both cases (full and reduced), adding the section heading and references list worked correctly.

When creating a section for references and adding the relevant tag,

What I tried:
Write the text "Notes" right above "Voci correlate", mark that text, choose "Heading" from the formatting dropdown, then add a reference via "Cite > Basic" somewhere in the text, then click below the "Notes" heading and choose "Insert > References list" in VE.

No issues either. Let's close this soon if noone can reproduce (already set to Stalled status).

Yup, can't reproduce this one.

Making resolved instead because it probably was a problem in 2013 :)
