EditBug:10089 Python error adding essay with two authors OPEN There was an existing anthology that has two editors and was listed in ISFDB with no contents. I got a copy today and entered the contents into ISFDB. On hitting [Submit Data] I got the attached Python error. As I had quite a bit of contents data I switched to another window and first edited/saved the pub-metadata, no problem, and then added the introduction, and replicated the python error. I then backed up, removed the second author from the introduction, was able to submit/approve and did a second edit cycle to add the second author. After that I went back to the first window, deleted the introduction, and was able to save/approve the remainder of the contents. I did not do any further testing to see if it’s related to that the parent publication has two authors or anything similar. Marc Kupper 00:07, 18 Jan 2007 (CST)
