VisualEditor: Broken local Common.js causes VE not to be available on some wikis
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Author: jhall

While developing a browser test for bug 60797, I've noticed that some production wikis where VisualEditor is expected to be available do not load VE as expected. In each case, the error message captured at the browser level is (with some variation in the specific line numbers referenced):

[Error] Error: JavaScript parse error: Parse error: Missing operand in file 'MediaWiki:Common.js' on line 125
global code (load.php, line 1)

Repro steps:

  1. Visit a production wiki where VE is expected to be available, and request a random article with a VE edit param:
  1. In browser error console, note JavaScript error mentioned above, and note also that the VE editing surface simply never loads (although it appears to keep trying!)

I'll add list(s) of production wikis where this problem occurs as I uncover them in comments on this bug ticket.
