aelkneryou had a problem editing students and teachers05:25
aelkneruntil i figure out a way to fix the clash between standard schooltool links and the custom ones05:26
aelkneryou have two 'Edit' links when you are in a student view05:26
aelknerwhen you hove over the second one, you will notice that the link ends with /edit_student.html05:26
dadengone works the other has a bug05:26

dadengit works05:27
aelknerif i can get rid of the other one, i will this weekend05:27
dadengok, good05:27
aelknerbut for the demo, if you can just make sure to use the one tat works05:27
aelknerthe same problem prorably exist for the teacher05:27
