Fixing Old Data Forms

Around 2 months ago, Wikidot changed the way it processed and parsed data forms. A bug report was posted by RobElliottRobElliott, and there has been no official blog post made about it yet. But in short, old [[form]] that weren't 100% YAML compliant will not save now due to a change in the library that Wikidot uses to parse form blocks. The next couple of paragraphs explains the change, however, you can skip to the "fix" by clicking here.

There is a new TRANSLATE Wiki created by the developer team - now it is OUR turn to translate the existing english strings of field lables, buttons, help text a.s.o into OUR language.
Please read the blog entry On the top of Babel tower on Wikidot Blog abolut these new plan.
Whoever believes s/he can help in their home - language feel free to join the translate wiki and start your translation!
On this Wiki are language depending "comments" places for every language where translators can exchange in "their own language".
Here on the community forum ( http://community.wikidot.com/forum/c-126314/translate-wikidot ) is the place to ask question in english to the developer team and inform other translators about found issue - independent from the language itself.
Translators are welcome!
(you will find the link on our top bar menu item "Improve Wikidot" too!)

As announced by myself on my blog, there is now an easy way to show or hide content from specific users.

I've named it the Specific Users Only Include, or SUO for short. It's easy to use, and I encourage you to test it out!
