What web browser do you use? I was able to sign it with no problem.

Re: Can't load pages

Postby Fleshj27 » Sat Jul 13, 2013 5:22 pm

Okay, I'll play your silly game...why won't the Create Page process let me create a page? After I submit, I either get "address not correct" or a word doc looking thing back.

So far as I figure it's either
A: My internet connection (which isn't a problem for anything else)
B: Some weird glitch in New Summitpost
C: A personal vendetta perpetrated by a shadowy network who is out to get me.

Any suggestions.

Feed us some more details. Was this done on a cell phone? What browser? Did you copy and paste this text from a word document? We can't possibly know what the issue is until it is replicated on our end.

Elves,

http://www.summitpost.org/mountain-mete ... and/460005

Could you please find out what went wrong here? I went into this page to update the links - did not change anything else, but when I save the page suddenly everything is bolded.

Also, the section "change log" I added to it screws up totally...




Nevermind the above - found a workaround. Just need to save it in the new editor afterwards and it comes out okay...

The new editor has a "self correcting" feature. Sometimes it's good, but other times it will destroy your page if your not careful. :wink: Okay maybe not destroy it, but add a lot of clean up work. Moral of the story is use good HTML. I'm guessing that their was no closing bold tag where it should have existed. I'm guessing the editor decided to strip it out considering that it was incomplete.

I guess - but I only use the old editor. Don't like the new editor, Wikipedia also uses something similar and I despise it.

Anyway - worked on that page in the old editor, used the old editor to fix some links, and suddenly found a load of shite after hitting the "save" button. Rolling it back to a previous version also didn't work. But I saw that it looked fine in the preview of the new editor, so I figured to save it through there, and suddenly everything worked fine, and then I went back into the old editor to fix the rest.

By the way, I saw in the tutorial which Montana Matt set up that the idea is to stick to a particular style, would it maybe be a nice idea (for SP v4 or so) to have a sort of EPiServer CMS kind of deal? Or is that too expensive?

I tend to go back and forth. Overall I like the old editor better, but the new one has it's advantages too. Feel free to let me know when you use the old editor and have a broken formatted page without using the new editor to fix it. I usually spot those issues in a jiffy. :) I would then be able to explain what went wrong.

I'm not familiar with EPiServer CMS, but I signed up to get a free demo for it. Unless it's scary priced, I don't think that will be an issue if it's both fairly easy to integrate into SummitPost and is proven to be beneficial. I'm trying to cook up some ideas for SP version 4 for this up coming Fall. I'd also like to see a re-done private message system which I plan on doing an investigation on that. It would also be nifty to be able to select the default editor in the profile.

Look what you did, now you got me saying a bunch of stuff that isn't related to bug fixes. :wink: I plan on having a thread dedicated to this kind of stuff in a few months.

I don't have access to the server. :wink: Even if I did know how to fix it I couldn't. However tonight I made my first useful php script tonight. :D I still have a long ways to go, but I'm learning. CSS is still my passion.

Josh: is there a way to delete comments posted to one's submissions?

You can delete additions and corrections others have posted on your pages. But you cannot delete comments other have posted on your pages. However you can either contact the owner of the comment(s) or the elves. The reason for this is that in the past some folks deleted comments as a way to avoid someone's additions/faults. For example if you comment on a page and say "the page is missing driving directions". The owner cannot remove your words, hence it has to be either listed to be the owner or hopefully someone else sees it. Agreed that this is kinda annoying but it's just the way it is right now. However if you have a more clever method for dealing with this, feel free to chime in.

The main reason you cannot delete comments on submissions is so that folks are free to voice differing opinions... such as with controversial articles or TRs.
