Renoir, can you look at the CAPTCHA issue in The Bug Genie?

Also, the Google login option does not work, it fails after the user enter
its password with a 400 error -
"OpenID auth request contains an unregistered domain:
https://project.webplatform.org:443

Learn more <http://developers.google.com/accounts/docs/OpenID>"
Even if I remove those "443" from the URL given to Google, it redirects
here -
https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6206245?p=openid&rd=1

I guess The Bug Genie uses OpenID 2.0 and should switch to OpenID Connect.


Clark, see comments inline.

​There was a syntax error - the pipe character (|) was used within one of
the <pre> examples.
I converted it to an HTML entity reference (&#124;) and now the text is not
longer truncated.

In order to fix (or work around) this kind of issues in the future, go to
the edit page and replace "formedit" with "edit" in its URL.
So -
https://docs.webplatform.org/w/index.php?title=tutorials/javascript_best_practices&action=
formedit
Should be -
https://docs.webplatform.org/w/index.php?title=tutorials/javascript_best_practices&action=
edit

This gives you the source editor (instead of the standard form editor),
which does not suffer from syntax error truncation issues, but shows you
the verbose source. It is generally only useful for fixing syntax errors
and making very low level structural changes.
