When posting a comment at asksage.sagemath.org, I got an error message which was tough to read since it was white text on a yellow background. I've mentioned this before at asksage, and I think Evgeny may have addressed it already, but it happened again today and that reminded me I had wanted to mention it here too.
The link is here (my comment "I'm afraid the best I could try is . . ." to my own answer). I'm afraid I don't remember the particular error message, but I did have the impression it was a server problem; the trac.sagemath.org site was having serious problems for a few hours this morning, so it may not necessarily be a bug with askbot. I mostly just wanted to comment on the readibility of the error message :)
Niles, the mail server is down on ask.sagemath.org and that causes severe problems - these are fixed in the latest code already. Unfortunately I have not foreseen this before.
Could you contact William or Mike? I have sent them an email, but maybe they'll react faster if more people nudge them?
As a temporary measure they can enter this into file
settings.py (instead of any other
EMAIL_BACKEND record) and restart the webserver, then fix the SMTP server issue.
EMAIL_BACKEND = 'django.core.mail.backends.locmem.EmailBackend'
Btw, with the new code you will be able to edit math on your site with MathJax.
