Greetings:

Good work on OW

You can't use the main editing or text features on Fanfiction.com among some by using OW. Only Firefox and IE flies.

Can you give us some more details on what isn't working specifically? The form editing features (which I think someone was mentioning recently?) Appear to work okay for me.

Did you create a document to post in the Documents Edit/Preview section? Instead of getting a normal editing screen you get one with HTML codes shot thru it without any line breaks. The screen bar says:

Edit/Preview:

This editor requires Internet Explorer 5.0+, Netscape 7.1+, Mozilla 1.4+, or an equivalent Gecko based browser. A regular textarea will be displayed instead.


Thanks and Good luck,
James Greenidge
 
Have you tried spoofing as Firefox?

Did this, and now on the editing screen is a "PLEASE WAIT" sign that never ends. Did it as Firefox 1.5 to 2.o and even Win Firefox.

This looks intended to me. The rich text editor isn't supported in WebKit based browsers apparently (OmniWeb, Safari) so it just uses a plain text editor that displays raw html for you to edit. Not the best solution in the world if you ask me but it appears to be what they chose to do.

There's no way to mimic the RTF editor used in such sites?

It depends on the editor. Some work with WebKit, the particular one they're using doesn't appear to. It's trying to load when you spoof as Firefox but fails to do so.
