The helpdesk is down. In the meantime, you can leave private notes on EWS's diary, and he'll do his best to help you.
Please help us offer our users useful entry prompts for Theme of the Week by suggesting themes HERE!
Tip: The most common cause of an entry failing to post is because there are special (hidden?) characters in the entry, often caused from pasting the entry into the editor from somewhere else. Try either typing it directly in the OD editor, or type it in Notepad and paste it from there.
Notice: If you're using Google Chrome and your WYSIWYG editor isn't showing, go into Diary Maintenance -> Editor Settings and disable "Turn editor on for entries" for the WYSIWYG editor, save it (that's important), and then re-enable it and save the setting again, and the editor should show up as normal.
Notice: If you're using Internet Explorer 10 and are having trouble with the editor when you try to write an entry, you have to turn on Compatibility View in IE10 to use the editor. Click the icon on the toolbar that looks like a torn piece of paper.
This week's question:
