Troubles and Error messages




Common behaviour and list of (error) messages that might occur


Tag extensions, like FlexForm, cannot hold any html in its arguments.

<_input type="text" value="hello<br>how are you" />

The above example will simply not be rendered. This is how MediaWiki tags work. You can use the following syntax, it at least will not break. It is another way of writing tag code.

{{#tag:_input||type=text|value=hello<br>how are you}}

The HTML will be filtered out.

Here's a list of common error messages that might occur, with a brief description of what the problem might be.
