Hi Tim,

I spent about 20 minutes editing the Wiki page with information and
sections for the Writer Guide. I previewed it and made sure I pressed SAVE.

It did not save my work. It was not even in the edit history.

Since this was the first edit after it was created, does anyone have any
ideas on why it did not save the edits after I pressed the button to
save the work?

Now I have to recreate the work I did. This time I will create the text
offline and then do the formatting after I upload the text.

Whenever I work on the wiki, and, if the document is in any way larger than a page, I normally do a manual save with Ctrl-A --> Ctrl-C in the text area of the editor and then paste into an external editor such as KWrite. That way, I know that I have a recent backup copy just in case the wiki goes south on me.

Before doing any final save on the wiki, I have also gotten into the habit of doing a Ctrl-A --> Ctrl-C in the text area of the editor and then pasting into an editor. This avoids the problem of the wiki dropping my page for whatever reason and losing the entire text.

I also find working with shorter passages and using the "Heading levels" will break up the wiki article into shorter segments. I find the wiki does not like to play nice when working with large documents.



The only thing I did differently with this working version was to not use the "indenting" of the text using the ":" symbol. Yes, I use the "Heading Levels" for the groupings titles. That way each group of information will be itsown section. I have decided that I will be doing most of my editing in Writer for spelling and grammar issues. I wish there was a spell checking options, like I saw ONCE in a Wiki editing page. They may be too hard to implement so no other Wiki page offers it as an an option.
