Frequently Asked Questions:



This section is for general Frequently Asked Questions about Wiki difficulties as they have arisen during past projects.

Question 1

Today I had a class full of students who were just having a miserable time with the wiki. They would press the edit button, but they would only get an empty page that had the two fields for entering comments about the edits and tags. I had them cancel, but one girl who didn't cancel and pressed save managed to annihilate the whole page. I used it as a teachable moment to show how you can revert to a prior version, but it had them all spooked.

Answer to Question 1

What's happening is that their browsers are blocking our javascript.

You can find instructions for different browsers on how to enable javascript here:

It may also be that something on their network is blocking it in which case you may need to speak with a local IT person. Adam
