New bug report in Item807

I had to generate a new installation as for some reason some recent changes had broken my existing installation. I got the new release via svn co

However, now after going into edit on a topic, both "show formatting help" and "hide formatting help" are shown, and the formatting help is displayed. If I click on either "show formatting help" or "hide formatting help", editing is aborted and I am sent back to the view page. (see attached...)

This is on IE 6.0.2800 -- TW

sounds like you don't have the TwistyContrib installed? WN
In that case he should not see the show/hide links. AC
Ah, then it is broken as these are the same issues i had when i didn't have TwistyContrib installed. WN
Hmm, perhaps I am confused with javascript yes/no.

TW, could you try the attach page? If the problem is the same there, its probably a configuration thing. AC

Same problem on the attach page. And yes, I do not have the TwistyContrib installed... As it was said above, if the supporting contrib is not installed, the show/hide links should not be displayed. Alternatively, this contrib should be installed out of the box. -- TW

I think it is installed out of the box. If not, there's the bug. AC Well, it wasn't when I svn up 'ed yesterday a new installation. -- TW

I have filed the bug in Item807. AC

Note that there are two issues here:
  • TwistyContrib not installed (now Item807
  • If TwistyContrib is not installed or enabled, the hide/show commands should not be shown (this can be solved using context, similar as the WysiwygPlugin edit link is being controlled). --TW

OK, reopening this bug. What is the context for TwistyContrib? -- AC

That has to be created (see how WysiwygPlugin does it). There may be other solutions -- TW

Note that CC is planning to add support, see the discussion at Item759 -- TW

No. You can detect if a plugin is installed, but not a contrib. A contrib is assumed to be an extension to the core that is always-on.

I can't see any of the links mentioned above. How do I test this?


TwistryContrib has to be installed (see Item461); it's part of the base dakar package (using either a prepackaged TWikiFor or pseudo-install.pl). if things don't work/look right when javascript is disabled, open a new bug for that.
