Forums: Index > Help desk > Problem with info page layout


The new form that one gets when one clicks "create info page" on Help:Alternative types of page for individual has a comment on the spouse field which does not contain the end-of-comment "-->" By the way, these comments slow down data entry because one is always moving the cursor around them. It is better for the experienced user if all the = signs line up. Could someone make a way for experienced users to make info pages without all the comments? DennisDoty 16:02, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Problem fixed! I figured out how to do it myself. But I hope thought will be given to my proposal of eliminating comments altogether for experienced users. DennisDoty 17:11, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

Good work, Dennis, and I apologise again for somehow saving that comment without its closing tag. (I suspect that Firefox was playing up and jumping to delete things long after I had highlighted them.) You have the solution for yourself, which sounded quite clever but easy and definitely fixing the problem. Any user who feels experienced enough can do as you have done. You could explain it here. — Robin Patterson (Talk) 08:19, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
However, use of the "End" key could make the problem insignificant, no? — Robin Patterson (Talk) 08:19, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks for telling me about the "End" key. You are right, it eliminates the problem of comments getting in the way, even for a two-finger typist like me. DennisDoty 11:35, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
