           Summary: "Cite Journal" template in the Wikipedia editing
                    toolbar not working
           Product: MediaWiki
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: JavaScript
    Classification: Unclassified
   Mobile Platform: ---

The "Cite Journal" template in the Wikipedia editing toolbar (at least the one
I see) is not working properly all of a sudden (I don't know how long this has
been going on, since I don't think I've used in a month or so). If one clicks
"Cite Journal", the "Cite Book" template pops up instead! It is missing all of
the critical ingredients of the "Cite Journal" template, like PMID number, DOI
number, and so forth. I tried to make some manual adjustments after I filled in
the fields in the "Cite Book" template that in now the only one available, but
it's still not working correctly. 

Even odder is the fact that though the edit toolbar clearly titles the template
"Cite Book" (instead of the "Cite Journal" requested), when one clicks "add
citation", the resulting citation text reads <ref>{{cite journal}}</ref>, even
though it's clearly not and doesn't have the normal journal fields.

Anyway, this is really really frustrating for those of us citing medically
related articles, and so forth. BTW, I've checked this on Chrome and on IE, and
it's the same glitch on both.

Can someone please restore the "Cite Journal" template to its former correct
state, complete with the proper name, and the PMID number field, DOI number
field, and so forth? Thank you.
