VisualEditor: prevent creating internal links with no displayed text or warn this is happening
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

It is not easy, but you can create an empty wikilink with VE, https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Ascending_cholangitis&curid=5544827&diff=572776141&oldid=566427601 (I was able to reproduce that somehow, I think I just added the link to an empty space).
I can't imagine a situation where this is desirable or useful, please correct me if I am wrong.
Thanks.

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.
