Split long entries doesn't work

I've had this plugin installed for a long time but it has never worked and still doesn't. The inserted code is ignored. I have an up-to-date install of s9y.

Re: massive spam ... how do you handle this ?

I've found that the most effective anti-spam plug-in is spam:/challenge response. I ask a question whose answer is obvious to a human but not a spam bot, such as "Can elephants fly?" Since doing this I've only had one spam get through in about a year; before that I was getting flooded from time to t...

Re: Deleted user still a login option

Thanks for your reply. I'm largely stuck with FF myself, for the reason of familiarity which you mention, although I'm having another look at Seamonkey.

Re: Deleted user still a login option

Yes, I do have autofill but for some reason FF currently doesn't show the relevant options for this or indeed for passwords/usernames. But I installed an addon which shows passwords/usernames and this allowed me to delete the relevant entry. As a matter of interest, which browser do you prefer? Ther...

Re: Deleted user still a login option

I think you are right. I do get a blank page; when I start to enter my username there I get the two possible usernames offered. This is with my usual browser (Firefox). When I tried with Dillo it didn't happen, so that confirms your idea that it comes from Firefox. I will look into this; sorry for t...

Deleted user still a login option

Some time ago I added a user who is now deleted. Said user still appears as an option in the login page. Not a major problem but is there a file I could edit to eliminate this? There is nothing in serendipity_admin.php.

Re: Long posts

Interesting - I hadn't thought of that. I tried to use the entrysplit plugin for this but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Re: Edited material disappears when Save is clicked

I upgraded S9y at the weekend and so far editing seems to be OK. I haven't enabled autosave, however.

I take your point about the default behaviour not being specific to S9y; I've no idea what specificies it.

Re: Edited material disappears when Save is clicked

It looks as if the "default behaviour" is what is doing this. But how long is too long? It would be useful if it were configurable. The reason I queried Autosave is that when I made a Test post just now and saved it, the text I'd written there appeared in the next New entry. After turning off Autosa...

Re: Edited material disappears when Save is clicked

I'm not using the autosave plugin - just the builtin autosave. I don't use the WYSIWYG editor. No error messages that I've seen. If I keep saving the text frequently it's OK. If I stop to think too long and then click Save, the entry I've been working on disappears (I don't see "Your entry has been ...

Re: Edited material disappears when Save is clicked

I already have autosave activated but it doesn't seem to be working. Does it only work jn draft? Anyway, I don't understand why Save seems to be doing the opposite of what it says, i.e. deleting all the text I've written.

Edited material disappears when Save is clicked

If I pause too long while editing a post and then click Save, everything just disappears and all my work is lost. I seem to remember that this was something you could configure but I don't seem able to find it. Very annoying when it happens. Any way to avoid it?

Re: Buttons not showing in new backend - SOLVED

I finally found the problem. Under Preferences I was not allowing pages to use their own fonts. Allowing this makes the icons appear. Perhaps worth documenting?

Re: Buttons not showing in new backend

I think it must be a bug in FF because I've now had the same thing happen while accessing another quite unrlated site. Anyway, I've just installed Seamonkey, which does show the buttons. I'm thinking of switching to that as my default browser (not just because of the button problem).

Re: Buttons not showing in new backend

I tried telling FF to use unicode instead of auto but no effect.

Yes, this was the entry page.

Incidentally I tried a third browser (otter-browser) and that was fine.

Anyway, I can live with the problem but it would nice to understand why it's happening.
