Description Edmund 2007-11-30 10:19:32 UTC
Dear sir/madam,

There is a user in the Malay Wikipedia, whose username is Putera Luqman Tunku Andre, he couldn't do any edit, except adding new message into talk pages and editing sections. He had e-mailed his password to me so that I can experience the problem.

I found out the problem is, whenever I clicked the "sunting" (edit) tab on top, I ended up downloading a file called "index.php". This problem only occured in his account, while my own account doesn't have such problem. He opened another account called "Harry Cactus" (please help to keep this secret!), and there is no problem with the account.

Can anyone please determine the problem with his account? Thank you!

Edmund, an admin in the Malay Wikipedia

Most likely cause is that the user has enabled use of external editor in preferences under editing tab (Gunakan penyunting luar secara lalai).
