Seems you've got a VIEW_TEMPLATE in place, maybe in your user profile.

Ok nice to know, thanks a lot. But where can I find these settings, it is not in Main/SitePreferences. I would be glad if you can help me.

And also in the System/WebHome I see the Text but not in System/ReferenceManual. Are there different Templates?

-- WuebboFreese - 25 Mar 2014

The VIEW_TEMPLATE is a normal preference setting. A very common error is that users add a VIEW_TEMPLATE to their user profile page ... which then is applied to any topic of the site when logged in as this user. Same error can happein when setting a VIEW_TEMPLATE in WebPreferences or SitePreferences.

To check if this is actually causing the error, try appending ?template=view to the URL. This will override any preference setting stored in your user profile, WebPreferences, SitePreferences, session object, or AutoTemplatePlugin rules as configured in your LocalSite.cfg

Ok, I guess we are on the right way.

With the appending of ?template=view to the URL I got the text with the following Error:

IIF{ "$DISPLAYCOMMENTS='on' and $COMMENTFORMAT!='insidetab' and not context save and not context preview and not context edit" then="$percntTMPL:P{\"comments::system::metacomment\"}$percnt" }

Also did I made a Screenshot of the AutoTemplatePlugin and AutoViewTemplatePlugin of the configure page.

OK I get it. I found that other users didn't had this problem. so I got in my useradmin.txt file and delete the row: META:PREFERENCE{name="VIEW_TEMPLATE" title="VIEW_TEMPLATE" type="Set" value="GroupView"}

I had no Idea what tis means but no it works.

Thanks a lot MichaelDaum
