Updated issue 23 (November 1986) on the wiki:

http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/CWTA_Issue_23_-_November_1986_-_Type-Ins

This one took a little longer as I found Gunpowder Plot on CPC Power, Circle was in a text listing format on CPCRulez, and I had to type out 3D Graphic by myself (gasp!)  Naturally I put in about a dozen typo bugs  ??? but I think I've got them all.
One more issue to go then that's 50% done  ;D

Updated issue 24 (December 1986) on the wiki:

http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/CWTA_Issue_24_-_December_1986_-_Type-Ins

There was only one game (on CPC Power) so I've spent time yesterday and today typing the other programs in. I think they are all error-free but I'd be grateful for a second opinion. I didn't type in the machine code listing (about p87?) nor the improvements to Backgammon in the postbag section.

So as Bon Jovi sang, "we're half way there" (typing on a prayer?)  ;D

My next focus is to skip 1987 altogether and start 1988 since I have a base of type ins from Nich Campbell - I expect I might have to fill in some gaps so this won't be an issue a day like it has been, plus I have some holiday away from computers  :( so there'll be a week of silence soon. Still I hope to get this all done and dusted by the end of August if possible.

Updated issue 42 (June 1988) on the wiki:

http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/CWTA_Issue_42_-_June_1988_-_Type-Ins

@Gryzor  no problem! I feel like a fraud because I am mostly just arranging and organising what other people have already typed out before me! But now it's presented in a systematic way... can't wait to work out why those categories aren't appearing though...

Regarding that last one; I haven't been able to find what's wrong with the darned thing. However, I intend to do a major update to the server actually, so hopefully it will automatically be fixed then :D

I mentioned this earlier, the problem is with the gallery not being closed properly!


Below I've glowed the problem, which should read as </gallery></center> once that's fixed the Categories will be displayed.

Whoa, must have missed your message. Is that really the issue?!?


Huh, fixed it on http://www.cpcwiki.eu/index.php/CWTA_Issue_21_-_September_1986_-_Type-Ins and it worked...

Yep, though it's been repeated over and over again for each page, making it a large pile of pages which need fixing! :(


EDIT:Sorry it was within the Wiki Dead-End Pages post I mentioned the problem.

If it makes you feel better, my browser doesn't report the errors, Internet Explorer had something like Done, but with errors - or something along those lines.


So for all we know the Internet has stacks of Syntax Error sites.

Thank you @AMSDOS , I had missed out the beginning < from the tag in the template I was using hence the repeat of the issue... so I'll set to and fix it on all the CWTA pages today.

I want to say FROLICS but I'm thinking something that rhymes with it! Does this prove I'm human (fallible) or machine (repeating the same problem multiple times)? No need to reply to that...!

Despite the delicious irony of the wiki categories in the type-ins pages that I've been contributing to CONTAINING A TYPO (for the nostalgia!) I've had to admit my mistakes and go back and fix them  :picard:

Thus, all the CWTA type-ins pages now have the same categories and the < fix applied. I've also gone through the Amstrad Action pages and corrected them too so they all show the categories - again all my mistakes.

Sorry @Gryzor for having led you on a wild goose chase with the wiki.

Eh, I learned a few things along the way, like not focusing on the obvious, and some stuff about mediawiki scripting, so it was not all wasted :)
