Please ask questions ONLY in this topic.

A little girl made a website to post poetry related to peace and understanding. American fascists have hacked this website replacing it with Hitler-esque propaganda. Can you repair the website?

wow - many hours, 20 pages though this forum and lots of reading on DT (this was helpful) later, and I've finally got it!

#possible spoiler#

Reading through the forum it felt like lots of people were stuck around where I was too - my hint: if you're at the submit poem point - there are 2 input boxes! Think about what you want to change, and what you want to change it to!

-admins - sorry if that's too much of a spoiler, feel free to remove!

Massive thanks to everyone that posted in this forum. No way I'd have got through this one without it!

Yea, unfortunately that particular comment takes away quite a bit.

Well, this is exactly where exploration is key. With a tad bit of mere common sense (i.e. educated guessing) thrown in, examination of the two poem features would lead you right where the data is stored.

Hope you enjoyed and also managed to take away some valuable knowledge. Cheers!

So I found the solution, but I'm still not convinced.
The page were you insert the new content and the target location of the content are on the same hierarchical level, so why do you need to traverse up in the hierarchy. There's also no indication that previously existing submissions exist on a lower level (sub-directory) either (except if 'guess' is the keyword here).
I just don't get it.

It indeed needs a tad bit of common sense guessing, but if you check out the reading functionality and maybe fiddle around it a little, it should all make sense.

I finally got this one to work. It was actually more or less the first (maybe second) thing I tried, just with a slight addendum that I eventually worked out from all the little 'hints' (I know you all mean well & no one wants to spoil things, but sometimes ... :?: ).
Anyway, despite all the starred out clues and reading about 10 or so various sites and articles on it, I could not get what I think is the 2nd to last step to work for me. We all love that feeling when after many a frustrating hour the "plan comes together", but, I'm here to learn & I have not learnt how to do that particular thing. I'm probably not far off (like a key stroke or so - its usually something small and stupid) and I'm hoping someone will be kind enough to take a little time to work with me via PM to identify exactly where and how I've gone wrong.
For now all I can offer are my thanks in advance and the hope I may one day reach the point where I have the skill and knowledge to reciprocate to the community.
(Also, not sure if this really belongs somewhere else - if so, sorry for that)

Puh...that was ...interesting.

I think i wasted 3 hours figuring out what i did wrong only to discover that my browser had done me wrong and i succeeded hours ago.
But after all it was a nice challenge
