Can't Edit Game Wiki
One of my games has a wiki (via the Game Wiki link), and it has a LOT of information in it for players' reference. Today, though, I can't do anything with it. Several pages are coming up blank, and the bottom line of all of them say

and nothing else. Not editing links, no option to see prior versions.

All of the wikis I can see have the same issue that LonePaladin is having.

Same. Every single one of my games are experiencing this. :( The only pages I can see are the landing pages.

Is there a way to fix this? Or are we having to wait for site programmers to do it?

I believe the Site Admin will need to take a look at it, as and when he gets time.

Just throwing my hat in on this problem. I am brand new and thought that maybe I had broken the wiki! Plus I was Never able to make multiple pages... just the one page. But I only started trying to fill that page when I joined about two weeks ago. I would really like to have that feature back!

As I said above, it will be fixed as soon as the Admin gets a chance to deal with whatever is causing the issue.

Just a thought from someone who knows nothing about Wikis ... could the problem be related to special characters in your text ?  Something similar to the problems reported here: link to a message in this forum

If that's the case, then removing the special characters (and replacing them with their keyboard equivalents where you can ie normal hyphen instead of em or en dash; normal single/double quote instead of the curly/angled variety) might resolve.

In reply to Skald (msg # 8):

Nope I dont use special characters usually and I double checked none of the stuff I put up would have had any. I thought I broke it by sheer volume of text on a single page.

Please note that 'special characters' in this case also can mean any punctuation mark at all, if you composed the text on Word or any other program and then copy/pasted it into the Wiki.

Not in this case. Any special characters I've used are either for formatting, creating wiki links, or otherwise kosher. Anything like an em dash was made by using an Alt code entered manually, so it's the equivalent of pressing a key. No bendy quotes unless the " key did it itself.

There was not copy-pasting on my part, so everything was entered manually. The pages worked fine before.

Re: Can't Edit Game Wiki
Unfortunately from the behavior of the Character Description fields right now, entering the Alt code for a special character does indeed break something. And, yes, such characters as Alt+0193 for "" worked just fine up until recently in the Character Descriptions but no longer.

Not yet.  As mentioned previously, as soon as jase gets a chance to look at this, he will.
