I've recently set a wiki from scratch here and
tried copying & pasting the content of this thread. The
expected result is that I should have seen the
plaintext document there, ready for me to format at
some later date. Instead, I was taken straight back to
the edit page -- with the additional text missing. It
was as if I hit the Reload button on the browser.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Go to the wiki site at http://atomicdoc.hopto.org
and click on the SandBox link.
--> Expected Result: Current 'SandBox' page is rendered
--> Actual Result: As expected:
2. Click the Edit This Page link
--> Expected Result: Taken to a text area where I can
edit the page.
--> Actual Result: Again, as expected:
3. Try adding a small amount (3 lines) of text
4. Now, click Preview.
--> Expected Result: A preview is shown of the page as
it stands with the edits.
--> Actual Result: As expected -- scrolling down the
5. Continue editing... this time adding a much larger
paragraph (I used the output from 'fortune -l law').
6. Now... click Preview again.
--> Expected result: Something like what's shown in step 4
--> Actual result: ALL added text disappears, I'm
effectively taken back to what's shown in step 2. Same
happens when I click 'Save'
PHPWiki has been installed using MySQL as a backend
DB. The server is running Apache 2.0.50 with PHP 4.3.8
and MySQL 4.0.20 on Gentoo Linux 1.4 (Kernel 2.4.24).
They were compilled using Gentoo's ebuilds. Any ideas
what could be causing this?
