Dififculty Editing

Help request from Arthur Smith:

From: Arthur Smith Sent: Fri, 8 Jun 2007 6:40 am

I have a problem with lunarpedia - I was trying to create a new article (on Paul javascript:showSuggestions("2",this);>Spudis) for the first time, and something in the javascript on the page seems to be preventing me from inserting any text in the big text box. None of the buttons do anything either. I can work on existing pages ok, but I don't seem to be able to insert anything on a new page.

This is with Firefox for Mac OS X. Any suggestions?

Charles - thanks. I figured out a way to get it to work - click on the "Toggle the fullscreen mode" button in the upper right corner, and I can edit the text box for a new page when it's in "full screen" mode. But shrink back to regular mode before I've entered anything in the box, and I can't edit it still.
Tom Riley User:Jriley Dear Author, Lunapedia now has two levels of editing, complex and simple. Only the simple editer lets you paste outside text. There is a icon to switch between the modes. It looks a little like a piece of paper and is toward the end of the bar. This little trick cost be about an hour to puzzle out.
javascript:showSuggestions("12",this);>MikeD says, "they can always click on the icon and disable one of the javascript editors, and just use the regular toolbar"
Also, please note that the server can be slow to load all the features, so sometimes if you wait a few more seconds it might help.Charles F. Radley 13:32, 9 June 2007 (UTC)
Actually, the fancy javascript editor loads almost everything from wikipedia, that's the way the author wanted it, and given the dependencies I'll either leave it that way or remove it altogether. The extended toolbar with the blue icons does almost as much and it's all on our own server.
I believe for the fancy editor to work you have to have javascript enabled for wikipedia in addition to lunarpedia.
Sorry about time lost guys. I guess I couldn't see the issues as I was far too close to it all. In fact that's part of the reason I've been keeping away from websites for a week or two, I'm kind of burned out on them after setting up 5 wikis and working on the Moon Society main page. (You might not see the differences in that page, but the maintainers do!)
