Edit tab on translatable pages flashes "Translate" before changing "Edit wikitext".
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Estimate Story Points


Steps to reproduce:

  1. Go to
  2. Observe the edit/translate tab

Translate extension overrides the edit tab to point to Special:Translate and say Translate. It looks like VE is overriding the text back to Edit wikitext.

I have a vague memory that things will break if ca-edit is not present on a page. How can we resolve this conflict?

@Krenair, @Jdforrester-WMF, on the beta cluster, I'm currently seeing two edit tabs, both just labeled "Edit". Breakage from this commit?

On any page I visit on the enwiki beta. For example, Obviously, you have to have the VE beta feature enabled.

Interesting. Only for uselang=en (and preferences), all others worked fine. Caching issue?

It may have been. It seems to be working correctly now.
