THanks for your answer. It is good info and I thought it would be "the one".

ENtering an author name still has the same problematic response however. I don't recall ever entEring an author name on my local copy TBH.

I've also noticed - and this may change the cause of the problem - that the other buttons next to Save (Preview etc) also do nothing. Or, to put it another way, they simply reload the page.

This indicates something wrong with my (web)server etc settings.

Kind regards,

Daniel Rhodes

This can be a symptom of not providing an author name when it is required. 

On your personal install you may have provided this in the past; the name is preserved in a cookie and repopulated when necessary. On your virgin install it isn't. No error message is given.... (or at least, it wasn't last time I tried, a few versions ago).

See http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/EditVariables:
When set 
to '1', posting of pages requires the author to provide an author name. 
 Otherwise, authors can post without a name.
       # require authors to provide a name
       $EnablePostAuthorRequired = 1;

Hello there pmWiki users!


BUT, when I make an edit to a page and click "Save", the new text that I have added dissappears and no change is saved. The change is not even preserved in the textarea. Clicking "Save" seems to remove any text that I add to the page.
