Caution in using VisualEditor

Recommended Posts

Ken Roy

I have added the following caution to the VisualEditor article

Please continue to using the WikiEditor when creating mod download links.  The VisualEditor destroys the Save As dialog created by the [[Media:file_download.zip file_download.zip]] by changing it to
[[index.php?title=Media:file_download.zip|Download file_download.zip]]
which of course does not work

Note that Robin had identified this issue during beta testing in the VisualEditor - Breaks Media Links

Since MediaWiki may not be setup for providing file downloads, chances of getting the developers to fix this issue might be slim to none  :)

Please use the VisualEditor with caution. While a fix has been installed to prevent destroying Media: links that generate the Save As dialog, there might be other issues that are still unresolved

Thanks to Robin for testing that the VisualEditor no long destroys the Media links
