Tech:Listing editor interacts poorly with HTML comments
I occasionally see edits like this one, where an HTML comment is modified improperly by the listing editor. (Note that the user apparently thought he/she was editing the "Khayalethu Backpackers" listing, but instead a new "Khayalethu Backpackers" listing was created at the top of the article, where the HTML comment was located, and the text of the comment was incorporated into the listing!)
When it happens
Not sure if it happens every time there's an HTML comment or not, but I've seen it twice in the last week. The HTML comment could be anywhere in the article; it doesn't seem to matter where.
Update (12:15, 6 April 2011 (EDT)): This behavior only occurs in Internet Explorer. It does not occur in Firefox. In IE it appears to happen quite consistently if there are ANY HTML comments in the document. This is a major flaw in the listing editor. -- LtPowers
What should happen
The comment should remain undisturbed and the listing editor should update the correct listing instead of trying to update the HTML comment.
How to fix it
Any update on this, or can we close the ticket? Riggwelter 16:39, 20 June 2012 (EDT)
