Can't view wiki pages?

Can't view wiki pages?

Postby partner555 » Fri Nov 06, 2015 1:17 pm

Hey everyone, I have gone onto the Drowtales wiki for the first time in a while to do some much needed updating, however, I have encountered a problem. I am seeing nothing. Take for example, Ariel. When I went to see her page, I saw nothing. At first, I was worried that everything was lost, however, when I clicked on edit, all the information was still there, I just can't view the information outside of edit.

I would like to know if other people have the same problem with viewing wiki pages. If not, then I know it's on my end. For what it's worth, I had tried viewing the wiki pages on my Mac, my iPad and my iPhone, and they all have the same problem.

It's been an ungoing problem for awhile now, so it's not just you

Dammit! *upset*

I was thinking of doing some wiki work now that I no longer have to both study AND work and can just concentrate on work. This throws that out the window. A bit hard to check the quality of your work if you can't see your work.

How long has this been going on? I haven't gone on the wiki in over a year.

I could ask Kern about it, though I'm not sure what he can do. If need be, I do have a plan B that I am considering which will also address the issue of non-activity on the wiki due to the contributors all having real life get in the way.

Update: A few weeks ago, Kern told me that he forwarded the issue to the programmer. I have no idea how long it'll take to fix the issue, but we can only hope for the best.

Today, I have done some minor updates on the wiki, however, as a contributor, I have noticed a problem, when I'm logged in, I can't view the content on the pages at all unless I'm in edit mode.

This is highly frustrating, as it means that I will have to constantly log in and out to get things done AND check my work.

Edit: AND NOW, THE PAGES I HAVE EDITED CANNOT EVEN BE VIEWED ANYMORE OUT OF EDIT MODE! *omfg*

You know what, I think editing the wiki is unfeasible until the issue is fixed. I'm going to tell Kern what happened. Besides that, this is what I'll do: *crying*

Well, just holler if things change. I've also got a lot of free time on my hands, atm. I'd be glad to help out however I can. I'm only moderately familiar with wiki edits, but it's similiar to TVTrope's system, iirc.

I don't know if I mention this to you partner, but I don't think Kern himself can do anything to fix the wiki. You have to contact the person that dose the the coding on that page.

I know, Kern has said that he forwarded the issue to the programmer.
