VisualEditor: Citation tool matching should also match templates with whitespace before the first parameter
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

The citation tool recongizes a citation template that starts like this:

<ref>{{cite web|url=

It does not recognize one that starts like this:

<ref>{{cite web |url=

The only difference is the (very common) addition of a space before the parameter. It should understand both of these.

I fixed this in https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/132725/ without realizing it.

Column Prototype
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.
