VisualEditor: Pipe trick in templates displays wikitext rather than link
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

Intention:
Add more information to an infobox.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Open the infobox.
  1. Add a parameter with a link to a disambiguated page name.
  1. Use the pipe trick to label the link: [[Wooden spoon (award)|]]
  1. Apply changes.

Actual Results:
In VisualEditor, the template displays raw wikitext for that item: [[Wooden spoon (award)|]]

Expected Results:
That VisualEditor would display the same blue link with the same link label as the page will when it is saved ("Wooden spoon")

Reproducible: Always

This looks like we're passing the wrong flag to action=parse; will try to fix this myself.
