ifexist: when creating a page
Closed, ResolvedPublic

Description

When testing the existence of the page we are creating with {{#ifexist:}}, the result is, when the page is created, "doesn"t exist" :

{{#ifexist: {{PAGENAME}} | exists | doesn’t exist }}

The software should guess it's the current page, and then tell it exists (even if the parsing is realized before creating the page, of course).

This is actually the same problem as T7278, although it's a totally unrelated symptom. https://gerrit.wikimedia.org/r/#/c/137153/ will fix both.
