#78 Cannot save pages


I'm getting error while trying to save pages. Mediawiki is 1.16.0 and DotNetWikiBot from CVS! Any suggestion what could be the problem

-------------OUTPUT -------------
PageList filled with bot account's watchlist.

    Can't reproduce this.

    Was that a temporary problem or does the problem persist?

    Still same :S

    Now i was testing around. Seem's to me that works in window but i use mono on linux. Do you use some windows specific?

    No, DotNetWikiBot is so-called "100% .NET application", it doesn't use P/Invoke or any other platform-specific methods.

    I've got a temporary solution for now, in case you need it urgently, but not fully tested yet. Correct the DotNetWikiBot.cs code near line 950 so it would look like:

    webReq.Headers.Add(HttpRequestHeader.AcceptEncoding, "gzip,deflate");
    if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(postData)) {
    webReq.AllowAutoRedirect = false;
    webReq.Method = "POST";

    There seems to be some critical undocumented difference between .NET's and Mono's web connection handling. Or it is a bug. I'll try to investigate it.

    Please, keep me informed if you find something.
