Wiki Error

Wiki Error

There is a known issue in Wiki that we have already escalated to the vendors, that when you submit a Wiki, BB throws an error. A fix for this would be to copy the contents of the Wiki to a notepad (remove all formatting) and copy it back. This is because of the variation of formatting in Blackboard with the formatting of other word processing softwares.

Another way of fixing this would be to open the HTML view of the Wiki in the Blackboard text box and remove all the <span> and </span> tags. But it is very complex and confusing, so I suggest you to try the first method. Also, your students might face the same issue when they edit it. So, you could suggest this in instructor notes. It would be better if the formatting is done within Blackboard than being copied over from other software so that we can prevent errors.
