Hi sorry if this topic has been asked before, but I have just tried to make changes to 2 different sections of the Wiki and was given an "undefined error"

The changes did not take effect but the last updated section at the bottom of the page says that I was the last to edit.

The Section I was trying to amend was on the following page: http://www.travellerspoint.com/guide/Wyoming/

Thanks a lot

This thread may answer your questions. You are not the only one who has gotten the error message.

Ohh thanks so much for this... I will follow that thread and see what happens :)

Ok, personally for a website as Travellerspoint this is taking too long.
I don't know the background of this, it might be something really bad, but the last months it takes a long time to get answers, if answers appear at all.
It might be a good idea to give more regular visitors with moderator status like Isa, Hien and Sander the same tools as the admins, so there are more people who can fix problems.
Is that an idea? That way we all benefit and a lot of work for guys like Peter is 'outsorced'
Probably thinking to easy again, but hey, why not give it a try;)

Lorien - you may find this wiki page helpful also. Though I don't believe it applies to your situation at the moment, it does describe who can edit what in the wiki - going by your member status:

About:What you can edit

-----------------

Interesting concept, Michael. Good luck with it. ;)

Ace thanks Isadora I did indeed find that article very informative.

I did have the edit buttons available to me so hopefully when the bug is fixed I can get to adding some info on my home town too :)

Cheers
Lorien

It might be a good idea to give more regular visitors with moderator status like Isa, Hien and Sander the same tools as the admins, so there are more people who can fix problems.

Fixing the problem in this case is almost certainly a matter of programming. Now I can do that (and I might even still have the access necessary to actually make fixes on the live site), but - with no offense intended to Isa or the other moderators - I don't think it's a good idea to have regular members (no matter how trusted they are as a moderator) trying their hand at that. :)

Yes, the overlords might at present not be as absolutely super swift as they've been at certain points in the past (working hard on growing the number of future travellerspoint members will do that), but their response times are still amazingly swift, both in absolute terms and compared with anywhere else I've ever been, so I don't think there's much reason to change the way things work now (other than perhaps for the overlords to work on a better mechanism to automatically revert code changes on the website in the case of severe bugs or something like that).

Well, yes, maybe I was pointing more towards you specifically as I know you are quite a specialist. ;)

And totally agree about the admins working hard. It was absolutely not meant as an accusation for that matter, but was meant to give also them a little relief because I know they are busy (both private as well as with TP future plans etc.). So just an idea, some help, that's it.

Sander - no offense taken here!!! ;)

Michael - you definitely do NOT want me anywhere near programming and/or code as this thread illustrates my total lack of ability:

Scribbling Bullets

I couldn't figure out my own blog template issues so TP would be absolutely doomed. Besides, I'm blamed for eVErYTHING that breaks on TP already. See, I can't even use my own shift key consistently. (But, thank you for the thought.) ;)

If you only knew how much I would care to join you right now. Although I would skip the martini and have some cold white wine
