What happens[edit]

Maybe I missed a memo, but what happened to the "move" button? Is this a bug? - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 13:59, 6 June 2006 (EDT)

That's a bug. I see it at the top of my page; I take it you don't? --Evan 14:06, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
Nope. That I've thought about I haven't seen it for the past couple days, but really didn't notice it until I needed it. - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:09, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
I just installed IE 7 Beta 2 and when I signed back in I was able to see the moving button. Once I signed out I was unable to see it, so I signed back in. Earlier, when I reported the bug I was obviously signed in otherwiser the tides - ~~~~ would have displayed an IP following with the timestamp. Apparently, at some point when I stop seeing "Sapphire" and instead see "My page" I'm semi-logged out. I lose the ability do various editing features, but I'm still able to sign my comments. Does that make sense? - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:41, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
P.S. When I'm in this semi-logged out state I also lose the feature to "watch" a page. - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:42, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
That's not "semi logged out"; that's logged out! B-) Anonymous users can't watch pages nor move pages. --Evan 14:46, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
However, I was still able to sign my posts as evidenced by the first two comments. Also my edits on Special:Recentchanges still show "Sapphire," which normally would indicate that I'm still logged in. I was attempting to move Middletown,pa and if you look at Recent changes it shows that I edit the page by adding a WP link, isIn, and template. In theory if I'm logged out and can't watch or move a page the system shouldn't be logging my user name as making edits, right? - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:52, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
OK, so, my guess is that there's some Javascript badness going on; JS that's working on IE6 and on Firefox isn't working in IE7. I think there's a little stop-sign or something in IE7 for JS errors. I'll see if I can fix it. --Evan 14:57, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
Oops. Quick thing - I installed IE 7 after noting the bug. I was still using IE 6 when I mentioned this. - Andrew Haggard (Sapphire) 14:59, 6 June 2006 (EDT)
