I would like to reopen Making it clearer how to edit a wiki post, but didn’t know how, so added this new post.
So, I’ve just asked a friend to open this post I wrote, sending her a direct link: What are the things that need to be addressed to effectively feed Love and Peace thoughts and actions into America’s presidency ? - Spreading Love - Dialogue to test how easy she would find to understand the text and edit it.
I just wanted that anyone - even non-used to forum users - coming to my forum could edit this.
She started by double-clicking my text to try to edit it. She couldn’t.
It was not clear (for her, through my eyes) she needed to register. She spent a while trying to write on the post, and I just said she needed to. She only realized how to register when she clicked Post a reply and the login window appeared (which she did reluctantly and after I requesting so, as I had written in the text for people to change text in specific places).
Ok, so, she logged in - perfect, read that an email was sent, activated the account - very nice and flowing.
And then she went back to the post and tried again to double-click it…
Meanwhile I was checking if the admin parameters I had set for a user to edit a wiki post would send some intuitive warning… Eventually they did, though we found the pencil edit icon before that, and after clicking the three dots icon.
I wonder if somehow is possible to have this “edit on and where double-clicked” feature for wiki posts.
Any suggestions to get, with current features, some users participation on that topic I mentioned are also welcomed.
