Description

This is an interesting feedback comment that came from the Hebrew Wikipedia and I managed to also replicate in the English Wikipedia.

Steps to replicate:

  1. Go to a Sandbox page under a username. For example, this page https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=User:Mooeypoo/Sandbox&veaction=edit
  1. Mark one of the words and add an existing page to link to it. For instance, I marked 'some' and chose the link to "Somerset".
  1. Inspect the link while still in VisualEditor - the link is under the user namespace, so in my example, the link is now "https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Mooeypoo/Somerset"
  1. Save the page.
  1. After save, the link seems fine (points to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Somerset as it should).

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.
