In Reference list(and 'Cite web' template) - help link for CS1 errors info cannot be clicked
Open, NormalPublic

Description

Steps to reproduce:

  1. VE - insert a citation with some error, e.g. Journal with Source date 1290-09-10.
  2. Insert a Reference list - an error will be displayed: Check date values in: |date= (help).

Help is a link to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:CS1_errors#bad_date.

In Edit mode is not possible to click on that link - the area gets highlighted as References list area. The same issue is for some templates - e.g. for Cite web.

Also, Re-use citation Reference box will display the link to CS1 errors page - cannot be accessed from VE.

Would be great to have help info immediately available to users so they could correct their errors immediately.
