now I completely understand!
if you edit the template, copy the content from the edit page into your sand box, it will be yours to edit, delete. etc. It is a quirk of templates that if you hit edit where the template is used in a LQ discussion, it sometimes results in editing the original template. I'm not a techie either; rather a happy ecologist. I borrow code from folks like Wayne, Dennis, or Gladys and adapt it to my needs.
All the best! and great to see more biologists in WE.
Hi Declan, Thanks for explaining. I also reached a similar conclusion on trying to find what had happened. This is what WikiEducator is all about, it teaches us more than our subjects. Let us explore what we can do as ecologists together. Best wishes. Gita --Gita Mathur 02:22, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
