When I sign in and get ready to edit (Potlatch 2), I don't get any tag sets in the left panel. Sometimes its totally blank and sometimes I will get "Unknown" as the only available pull down. This only started today. I used to get tags but sometimes not a complete set. I installed a new version of Adobe Reader (w/ Flash) but have now de-installed and > Restored and still no tags. How do I get tags back?

Regards, GPSGary

please edit your question and tell us more details about: Operating system? used Browser? Version of Flash Plugin?

And a screenshot would be helpful ... you only need a place (free picture hoster?) to upload and a link to it.

I've had this a couple of times myself recently, using Firefox 4, previous flash plugin (I noted that it automatically updated itself last night) and windows 7 64bit.

Mine are back at the moment though... When I got the problem, closing the browser and reopening it again seemed to work.

I'm using up-to-date Win XT, Adobe Flash 10, and I've tried this on Firefox, Chrome and IE all current revisions. Same thing. No Tag Set gets loaded when the edit window opens and only when I touch something do I get "Unknown". If I go to the Advanced properties view the keys and values are correct for existing items but I'm not clever enough to manually enter all those on new stuff.

I have just opened the P2 editor to see what you mean. If you click on the little downward triangle to the right of "unknown" it will reveal the tags you are looking for.Note you may have to drag the tag box to reveal the whole tag box

This is probably a server problem, in that the server for one reason or another isn't giving Potlatch the tag preset file. Best to try again later.

Really strange ... but I'm going with the server problem. I left a browser window open for a few hours and came back. I had a partial list of tags ... and they acted strange. Messed with it for 15 minutes and it seemed to get better. Someone needs to investigate what the server is doing.
