VisualEditor: When making text bold or italic following a template, pawn symbol appears
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

In hebrew wikipedia, when I have created a new article, added a tamplate to it, wrote text and made it bold or italic - instead of the text appeared a pawn symbol, that was bold or italic according to the button I have clicked.

Can you clarify the instructions?

  1. Add a new page in Wikipedia, with the visual editor.
  2. Add tamplate to it (I used "מיון" tamplate in the hebrew wikipedia).
  3. Write any text after the tamplate.
  4. Select the text.
  5. Click on the "bold" or "italic" buttons.
  6. A pawn symbol appears.

The cause here is template with multiple unwrapped siblings,

e.g. Template:Done -> [[File:tick.svg|20px]] Done
