Bug ID: 73618
           Summary: "Script error" is not clickable when in edit preview
           Product: MediaWiki extensions
           Version: REL1_23-branch
          Hardware: PC
                OS: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Unprioritized
         Component: Scribunto
       Web browser: ---
   Mobile Platform: ---

Trying to import modules into a local installation of MediaWiki 1.23.6, I had
forgot to import Module:Message_box/configuration. As the title summarises, the
big red "Script error" is not clickable when in preview mode. After the page is
saved, it is clickable.

This bug can lead to confusion and frustration for editors who are trying to
test and solve an error in preview mode. Confusion for the first-timers who
hadn't experienced these errors before, and frustration because they would have
to submit an edit which they can't check is correct.

I can't figure out the cause of this, but the HTML code is the same. I suspect
it's because some javascript hook doesn't work in preview mode.
