Hi! I'm sorry if this has been discussed earlier, but we have some problems at @lvwiki. When user creats link to article, it is common to create such link [[Article's title]]SomeSymbols. The Visul Editor creats unnecessary nowiki tag (as in this edit: ctrl+f "<nowiki>Padomju Savienības" (without quotation marks)). Some suggestions?

I think that would require this bug to be fixed in Parsoid. Anyway, I'd recommend you include "trails" such as the s in the case above in the link: write Padomju Savienības and then select both the words to link to Padomju Savienība. Combine this to the "golden rule" of applying annotations (ie. bold or italics) to the word always before applying the link, and you'll get rid of most nowiki tags and ugly syntax.

Erica's suggestion to do these steps:

  1. Type Padomju Savienības
  2. Select the whole thing
  3. Apply the link

will stop the nowikis. It will produce a different style of wikitext, however: [[Padomju Savienība|Padomju Savienības]] (unless there is a redirect to Padomju Savienības).
