VisualEditor: Templates with a conditional <li> asterisk in the beginning render in VE with it always visible
Open, MediumPublic


Some frequently-used templates in the Hebrew Wikipedia, for example {{ynet}} have an asterisk in the beginning, which is inserted conditionally according to a parameter.

They don't appear in the rendered article, but they appear as bullets when editing the article in VE.

For an example see the URL.

I demonstrated the issue to Moriel.

Version: unspecified
Severity: normal

A video of the behaviour in Swedish Wikipedia.

Perhaps the video might be an additional issue as the first template in the video; does not contain an conditional asterisk but just a plain one, which seem to be handled well in the parser.
