OESF Portables Forum _ OESF Wiki _ Can't Create New Pages

Posted by: koan Sep 22 2008, 01:44 AM

Even worse than the login timeout problem, I just tried to create a new page and I can't save or preview!

CODE
Precondition Failed

The precondition on the request for the URL /index.php evaluated to false.

Looking into it now.

Will keep notes on wiki page https://www.oesf.org/index.php?title=OESF:Administrators%27_noticeboard.

I can't recreate the problem.

I can both preview and save new pages created either with my admin user or a brand new user.

You are filling in the arithmetic captcha that appears near the top of the page after you click Save?

Actually, I doubt you're getting the captcha. That only get's shown to users who are unregistered or unconfirmed.

Still cannot recreate your problem.

Even the forum PHP can't handle the example text that breaks the wiki sad.gif

I had two lines of quite basic C++

CODE
QCopEnvelope e(channelname, messagename);
e << parameter1 << parameter2 << etc;


If you replace the "etc" in the above example with 3 periods then index.php breaks.

Maybe it would help to say what browser this is happening in.

If all else fails, try using special character entities for the symbols instead of the symbols themselves?

This may be silly, but maybe your cookie file got messed up and erasing cookies might make a difference?

A work-around is to insert a space between the three periods and the semicolon:

CODE
e << parameter1 << parameter2 << ...;


This appears to work on both the forums and the wiki.
