Dear Webmaster,

I forgot some of the code for the above paste when coding my response in the thread, LIGHTING: ALADDIN OIL LAMPS. Now, when you hit the contribute button, you get the Preparation Archive. (laughing). Could you fix this? I'd be grateful for your assistance in this matter.

Sincerely, Stan Faryna

That is just to funny! I don't know how to fix it! Not that I understand HTML that well. We will see if Ed or Phil can fix it. Did you Email Phil?

What exactly are you trying to fix or get it to do?

The fix required needs webmaster access to change the html. I found a bug in the program that allows a contributor's html to interact with the original page html. In this case (thread on ALADDIN OIL LAMPS), unclosed tagging and incomplete coding made the contributor button act as the launching button for the preparation archive. And there is no way the user can fix this with a new submission as the submission process is cancelled. Of course, I didn't go looking for it. Just happened. The Faryna BUG! I'm joking. We see this on this forum with italics coding when the italics tag isn't closed. I haven't emailed Phil. But will do so immediately.

Sincerely, Stan Faryna
