Problem with Recent Info -> Add new article


#1

Today I added a new article explaining that the name of the summit OE/OO-084 changed.

In my first entry I only typed text into the header … resulting in an “)” showing at the “summit information page”. It is not possible for me to edit or delete my entry. In the second try I typed text into the header and also in the text box -> this entry can be edited and deleted by me!

Not sure, but I think this may be a little bug i’ve found …

Admins, can you please delete my first entry! Thank you, 73 de Martin, OE5REO

Hi Martin,

If you click on the article you submitted, do you see an “edit” button?

Hi Martin,

I see what you mean. This has been noted & will be corrected soon.

Thanks & best 73,

Hi Mark,

any news? Have you already found out what could be the problem?

Hi Martin,

This error is not something us mere mortals can fix so I have passed it on to a man that can.

Thanks & 73,

It actually breaks in two different ways. Paul HB9DST managed to do something similar to this but they were fixable by a bit of clever guessing. Martin’s breakage is a level above Paul’s breakage and I had a play about but couldn’t fix that. Jon will need to go under the hood with a number 3 hammer for that one.

I just had the same problem. When I try to add an article all that shows is the bracket at the end (see OE5REOs post above). However, I was able to open and delete the article again… We would like to add information about summit name changes following the latest summit review. Is there any other way to do this?

Thanks for the info but it’s got nothing to do with formatting. However, I have found out that a new article appears if text is added in the text box in addition to the headline. This helps in my case :smile:
