Can't hide edit help - no button

In either WYSIWYG or text editing mode the formatting help information is visible and there is no button to hide it. I can't find a preference setting for this. Bug? Intentional?

Have you updated your extensions? There was an unfortunate release of the trunk version of JQueryPlugin. It has some changes that are incompatible with 1.1.5.

JQueryPlugin version 4.33 has been re-released back to Extensions web. If you installed using the tarball, and installed extensions using the bin/configure tool, then you have a couple of choices.
  • Reinstall JQueryPlugin using bin/configure. It should downgrade you to version 4.33
  • or find the earliest backup of the plugin in working/configure/backup and untar that into the root of the install.

If you've installed using the debian packages, I'm not sure how to resolve the issue.

Thanks. I had 4.43 installed. I simply reinstalled JQ using configure. Perfect. Automatically "downgraded" to 4.33 and all is well. I am running Debian but I have several instances of Foswiki manually installed as virtual hosts running from different user accounts. Thus, I am running several independent wiki sites from the same server/IP. I have never installed twiki/fos using a debian package manager. All of the Foswiki installation documentation, including the apache configuration tool work fine for me despite the the apache tool says to not use it for debian. I simply put the apache config tool output in the "sites available" folder for Apache2 and link to "sites enabled". Now, if I can just figure out how to make the top right edit button be text editiing while preserving wysiwyg at the bottom left bar I will be even happier.

I had the same problem, that the "edit help" button was not visible, after upgrading from Foswiki 1.1.3 to 1.1.6. I could fix it by changing the configuration to use the newest JQuery version 1.8.2 (Configure / Extensions / JQueryPlugin / JQueryVersion).
