When editing a post's tags today (directly, via the "Edit tags" link), the tag edits are successful, but instead of returning me to an updated page, I receive something like:

{"success":true,"html":"<a href=\"/questions/tagged/linux\" class=\"post-tag\" title=\"show questions tagged &#39;linux&#39;\" rel=\"tag\">linux</a>< ... continues ...

This happened to me on U&L, and terdon has confirmed it also occurs for him on ELU.

  • If it matters, the browser is Chrome Version 70.0.3538.110 (Official Build) (64-bit). I have various extensions installed, but I don't see them interfering at this point. – Jeff Schaller Dec 5 '18 at 17:13
  • Editing via the full "edit" link appears to bypass the issue. – Jeff Schaller Dec 5 '18 at 17:26

A crucial line of code was inadvertently removed from the script that handles the results of edits... This led to a script error, which in turn prevented the script from stopping the default behavior for a submit button. So you got redirected to the editor submission route instead of seeing the results rendered inline.

I've re-added the omitted line, and all seems to be well again. Sorry for the inconvenience!
