VisualEditor: {{#tag:ref}} is not processed by VisualEditor, so the references list claims that there are no refs in that group
Open, NormalPublic


This may be related to bug 51289 and bug 61777.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Open a page that contains refs formatted like this: {{#tag:ref|Text goes here. |group=n |name=Foo}}
  1. Add a references list for the group.
  1. Read the error message. VisualEditor says that there are no refs in group 'n' on the page.


Refs would be properly recognized and displayed even if they use this rather odd format.
