Section editing: Off-by-one error and "empty translation unit"
Open, LowPublic

Description

Author: davidrichfield

Description:
While trying to edit the section "Attendees" on https://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Wikimedia_Diversity_Conference/Participants I ended up on the section "How you can get involved". When I edited the URL to read "section=1", I got to the right section, but when I tried to save, the page wasn't saved, I stayed in the edit dialog, and I got the error message 'Empty translation unit for marker "68".' That's why I think it's got to do with the translate extension.

Translate extension does not currently support section editing.

In addition the page is not following the best practices in handling markup: https://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Help:Extension:Translate/Page_translation_administration

There is no hope for a fix before bug 48891 gets any traction.
