Wondering if anyone might know how or why this error happens and what I
might do to alleviate it.

This code: {{coord|36|52|46.92|N|83|17|30.12|W|}} produces the following
output in a page along with the associated Fatal Error message.

36°52′46.92″N 83°17′30.12″W

Fatal error: The format of the coordinate could not be determined.
Parsing failed.

I have ParsingFunctions installed, Template:Coordinate and

Regardless whether using decimal degrees or degrees minute/seconds the
error persists.

I am running
MediaWiki 	1.29.0-wmf.14 (ec6907e)
PHP 	7.0.15-0ubuntu0.16.04.4 (apache2handler)
MariaDB 	10.1.20-MariaDB-1~xenial
ICU 	55.1
LuaSandbox 	2.0.13-alpha
Lua 	5.1.5

However this error, I believe, has been prevalent since 1.27.

Thanks for you time and thoughts.
