The transition from Please wait... retrieving page from server to the actual topic text is part of the undo-history, while it should not.

-- TWiki:Main/MarkVanHeeswijk - 29 Dec 2007

I don't think so. The transition is under the control of Javascript, and is not cached. What you are probably seeing is that the onload handler is caled when the page in the history is re-visited, resulting in a request sent to the server to convert the TML into HTML for editing. That's the way it is supposed to work. If you are seeing something else, please be specific. For example, do you see the wrong content when navigating "Back" to the page?

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 29 Dec 2007

I can confirm this bug report.

Mark description is easy to reproduce.

Click Edit on any topic and wait for the TMCE to load and be fully loaded.

Edit some text.

Hit the undo button in the button bar several times.

Note how the editing you did is undone. And then finally - as Mark describes - you end up with "Please wait... retrieving page from server".

Save and your topic is lost.

Can be reproduced both in FF and IE by just following Marks bug description. I do not understand that you cannot see this Crawford.

When the page is loaded the undo history should not include the "Please wait..." message.

Undo should be greyed out when page is loaded and not active until you have typed something.

And when you undo multiple times the last undo should be the one that brings you back where you started - and not the "Please wait..." message.

Sorry, I misread the report. I thought he meant the browser undo histoyr (aka the back button), not the editor undo history.

-- TWiki:Main.CrawfordCurrie - 29 Dec 2007

Different related issue with latest TinyMCE-3.5.8 integration: Undo changes in editor shows now the raw wiki text sans newlines. This is pretty bad too.

I am closing this item. My previous comment is covered in Item6776: WYSIWYG initial UNDO reveals TML
