Default "Create a Bioinformatics application" on search page does not work

Please go to: http://seqanswers.com/wiki/Special:Search/Hello
Clicking "To create a Bioinformatics application called 'Hello', click link." does not work. I think the linked URL should be http://seqanswers.com/wiki/Special:A...lication/Hello

Also, I suggest to change the link text since it's not meaningful to name a link "link". It could be "Create the bioinformatics application page Hello", where all the text is the link. (No need to state that one has to click the link.)

Thanks for reporting this bug mmartin, it's actually a problem in the changing format of the MediaWiki parser function used to create those links! At some point SF was upgraded, and the syntax that was working broke

For your reference, here is the correction I made:

http://seqanswers.com/w/index.php?ti...562&oldid=1106
http://seqanswers.com/w/index.php?ti...action=history


The parser function is documented here:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extens...arser_function


and here:

http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/Extension:Semantic_Forms



It could be nice to change this to a 'dropdown' form, so that you could choose weather you wanted to add a new application, format or sequencing centre. There are probably other system messages we could edit:

Thanks again!

Hehehe... well, we are not there yet... perhaps one day though!

I'll try to re-word it so it's clearer.

Default "Create a Bioinformatics application" on search page does not work

I created a birthday page, and I went to the main page to add a link to it underneath New Things. When I do the preview of that, it shows up right. However, when I save it, it isnt there. What am I doing wrong?
