What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Edit Darcs wiki front page
2. Notice lack of preview button
3. Click save

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Expected: changes are saved
Instead: The page loads with no changes taken into consideration. 
Interestingly, neither my name or a request for me to log in are shown.


What version of the product are you using? On what operating system?
gitit version 0.6.1 -plugins

I advise upgrading to the latest version of gitit.
In the mean time, I will think about what could be causing this.

OK, now running 0.6.4 -plugins (noting this down for tracking in case this happens again)

Have you noticed the problem again? I'm wondering whether I should close this bug.

I haven't noticed it recently. I think closing it is fine.

I would like to re-open this bug, if possible.

First: I have been able to reproduce this, both on Camino (MacOS X) at home and on
Firefox (Linux) at work. Moreover, I have gotten somebody else also on Linux to
reproduce it too.

Second: I think the reported lack of a Preview button is a red herring, and is more
likely related to my crazy SelfControlled setup than anything else

We're still at gitit 0.6.4 -plugins
Also note that our front page is called DarcsWiki, if it helps.
You should be able to get our wiki by darcs get --lazy http://wiki.darcs.net

Thanks!

I don't know if this makes a difference, but our front page is set to DarcsWiki.page

Oh, sorry I realised that I already mentioned that in comment #6. Another thing I
can offer is that this seems to specifically affect the front page.

Quick follow up: as a workaround we moved our frontpage from DarcsWiki.page to FrontPage.page and reconfigured gitit accordingly.

The problem went away. So I still think it may have something to do with non-standard front pages, maybe some sort of corner case
