Description Emmanuel Betranhandy 2006-11-07 12:37:06 UTC
The encountered bug is the following : 
I can not use the "modification" shortcut on the french Wikinews where I have an
account with the username Grimlock : all the creations and global modifications
of an article are as a consequence forbidden for me. 
Moreover, some modifications in "my preferences" are also blocked. This occurs
since yersteday, whereas no modifications of my wikinews specifications where
done just before. 
The error message is the following : "you have chosen to open index.php which is
a PHP file from http://fr.wikinews.org. What shoud (the navigator) do ?" when I
click on the shortcut.

Nevertheless, all inside modifications (modificate shortcuts close to a
paragraph title, for example) are allowed.
This problem is present on both Windows and Linux OS, either I use as navigator
Internet Explorer 6.0, Mozilla 1.7.6 or FireFox 2.0 and, when I'm not logged,
the bug does not occur. I precise that on all the other wikis I have a count on,
this bug does not occur.

I suppose it can be an error in my monobook.js, but other people on the wiki
have the same one, and they do not encounter any problem

The part concerning the preferences seems to work again : I did not proceed to
any modifications.

This isn't too clear as to what the problem is. Please provide a clear
explanation of what you did to produce the problem, including step-by-step
instructions.

I'm going to hazard a wild first guess, based on the "download index.php" issue,
that this might be the good old external editor preference kicking in, in which
case, see if deselecting "use an external editor" in your account preferences
fixes the apparent problem. If not, please provide further details.

Thank you Rob, the problem is now solved.
