Zero width character

In Blueprint (book) there's a zero width space character I can't seem to remove that keeps generating an error. Can someone please explain how I can fix this? IntoThinAir (talk) 03:52, 18 April 2019 (UTC)

I've ran a few semi-automated tools over it and one of them seems to have fixed it. Otherwise, you just have to find where it is in the wikitext (I don't know of any better way than pressing the arrow keys until you find where you have to press it twice for the cursor to move) and then you can delete it like any other character.

The error message [1] said exactly where it was: "zero width space character in |title= at position 56". That means 56 characters into the parameter value. This was right after the last visible character. PrimeHunter (talk) 09:02, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
Thank you for fixing this; I had tried to delete the character at the end of the title= text but I kept getting the error message for some reason. IntoThinAir (talk) 13:38, 18 April 2019 (UTC)
