The Project Grants space on Meta is experiencing a significantly impactful issue with the tabs structure, which is how grantees create reports and complete other important grant process tasks. Grantees are currently not able to generate pages normally because the buttons aren't working. Instead of creating a page at the designated place, the buttons are directing editors to edit the Main Page on Meta-wiki. The Main Page can only be edited by administrators on Meta, and so a message pops up accordingly, and this is creating confusion for grantees. At present, Chris Schilling is manually creating the pages and putting them where they are supposed to go. None of us on the Community Resources Team is able to fix this problem, and we're hoping that someone with more technical expertise than we have might be able to help us fix the buttons.
Chris Schilling (who has been trying unsuccessfully to fix the buttons) says his best guess is that there is an issue with the template pages for the buttons that generate the pages:
He has looked through these and compared them to other buttons we used in Rapid Grants (that are working as expected) to see if there is any obvious difference, but he wasn't able to identify any issues.
Chris thinks another possibility is that there is something wrong with the complicated wiki markup on the Project Grant Tabs template.
We are hoping that someone with more technical training than we have could help us try to fix this problem.
Background that may or may not be helpful: The Project Grants space on Meta uses a complex system of tabs, templates, etc that were originally designed by Jonathan Morgan, Heather Walls, and Siko Bouterse for the Individual Engagement Grants program many years ago. Though nobody on the Community Resources team now fully understands the system, Chris Schilling has gotten the farthest in trying to make sense of the system and has the best understanding of the documentation that exists, as well as the current bug.
