I have been working on this since 7 this morning and I am about to give up on silver stripe even though I really like the system.
Anyway on to my problem/s and I am going to start from the top.
Step 1 Installation:
I got it to install by setting the mysite, assets, tutorial and .htaccess to 777 after installation I changed everything back to 755 except assets...and that seemed to work fine image uploading worked, I could create pages insert images and edit content great I was happy.
Step 2. 1 hour later still adding content
the content editor in the backend completely stopped working I press enter and it expands the box out huge and doesnt let me type or if I add an image it stretches it way out...its driving me crazy and it happened twice on the first install and again the second time I reinstalled it.
