This happened to me on Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and IE they were all the latest versions

shouldnt creating new pages be blocked because if you press create page on it it actually creates a page intead of telling you its bloced, this is an example:

Edit (leiger): Link removed (see next post for the reason).

Unfortunately this is a limitation with Wikidot that I'm unable to get around. Eventually the plan is to allow users to customise that page (so I'd do that by making it redirect elsewhere and not show the link), but that hasn't been implemented yet.

Edit: What I can do is to hide the 'Cancel' button. Pressing Back on the browser should take you back to the thread, so this is probably the best short-term fix for the problem. It goes against web design standards as you're meant to discourage users from using the back button (it should never be used to navigate a website) … so hopefully the proper fix will come from Wikidot soon.

@Titen (Chris): I've deleted that lonesome post you linked to so that there aren't any random pages lying around on the website. I'll remove the link from your post as well to prevent someone clicking on it and making another post like it.

I've just made some changes to the 'create new post' page:

  • Bugfix: When quoting someone, the preview only worked for the first post in a thread, but not replies.
  • Bugfix: The cancel button is now hidden to prevent someone incorrectly creating a post
  • UI: The 'short description of changes' box is now hidden. I'll un-hide it in the future… when it's used.
  • UI: The 'The page does not (yet) exist!' message is hidden.
  • UI: The search box is now hidden…
  • UI: "Create a new page" changed to "Create a new page (forum post)"

Let me know if you have any more suggestions for this or another part of the website :)

Cheers,
Shane
