Two users have confirmed this problem with plugin version 16778 (07 May 2008). See TWiki:Support/ActionTrackerPluginSkinProblemOnEdit.

-- TWiki:Main/SeanCMorgan - 19 Jun 2008

I have just installed the plugin on 4.2.0 and the action edit screen is not blank; it works fine. More details required, please, including a testcase and details of your environment.

-- CrawfordCurrie - 03 Aug 2008

I can confirm installing the current plugin version on 4.1.2. The edit page is nearly blank because the edit.action.tmpl is nearly empty exactly as shown at TWiki:Support/ActionTrackerPluginSkinProblemOnEdit by TWiki:Main.SeanCMorgan on 18 Jun 2008 - logo, copyright.


Replacing the contents of edit.action.tmpl with the suggested content from an older version fixes the problem.

 <title> %WIKITOOLNAME%.%WEB%.%TOPIC%</title>
 <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=%CHARSET%" />
 <meta name="robots" content="noindex" />
 <meta http-equiv="Expires" content="0" />
 <meta http-equiv="Pragma" content="no-cache" />
 <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="no-cache" />
 <style type="text/css" media="all">
@import url('%PUBURL%/%SYSTEMWEB%/TWikiTemplates/base.css');
@import url('%PUBURL%/%SYSTEMWEB%/TWikiTemplates/default.css');

Perhaps that simple template is sufficient in later twiki versions, but it is a real bug. So a test case would be to replace your edit.action.tmpl with the short one and then hit the edit link from an action.

I have this problem, running TWIki 4.1.1 on Solaris 10 with SKIN = quickmenu,pattern, and Aaron's fix worked for me.
