Forum OpenACS Q&A: Can't edit page in ETP
When I had edited the page and submitted it I got this error:
We had some problems processing your entry: * You must supply a value for name * You must supply a value for attribute Please back up using your browser, correct them, and resubmit your entry.I tried on Internet Explorer as well as on Mozilla Firebird with the same poor result.
Does anyone recognize this problem?
img src="/storage/download/sequencing.jpg?version_id=146982" width="1067" height="1436" border="0" [within tags](plus a paragraph of text) and submit the page I get the error described above.
It seems that it is the image (150 Kb) that causes the trouble, because when I follow the same procedure, but without actually editing the content or just adding a piece of text, I can submit the page.
However, this link refers to an IE bug not to something that would also happen in Mozilla. You could try Netscape 7.1 to see if that works ok.
But, like you say, that was an IE-related bug while this seems to be a browser-unspecific bug - I couldn't post the form with any browser. I tried editing the page with Netscape 7.1, but got the same error. Following David Walker's advice, I also disabled "Show friendly HTTP error messages" in IE, to no avail.
That is really weird.
Seems like a bug in the parsing of the content of the POST. I wonder if it exceeded a limit of the textarea. That is a definite limitation of editing long documents in a browser.
On openacs.org you should be able to upload a new revision of a document. Apparently I did not add the feature to upload content for an index. page so that won't work in this case. Normally I think that item should have a page and not a subtopic.
The description attribute for the page isn't displayed at the right place, though. I expected it to be displayed after the Curriculum Sequencing Model link on the parent (index) page, but now it appears in bold letters at the top of the content page (in a new revision, which I don't want to commit as the live revision).
This is not intended behavior, is it?
I removed the description from the content template, and commited your changes. The description is part of a revision, so it won't go live until you commit the changes.
It should be fine now.
