Trying to edit the schematic in this answer, I get redirected to circuitlab, see some dialogs flash too quickly to read, then land at a 404 resource.

  • \$\begingroup\$ @PeterJ that gets me to the editor, but it can't be saved. Clicking the save button does a progress indicator like it's being saved, but then it stops and I'm left still at the editor. \$\endgroup\$

Update: Based on the time stamps, @PhilFrost answered/created the schematic while the question was on Ham, before it migrated over. I created one on that question, and it works fine.

I tried copying the schematic code, like I normally do to ""edit"" and work on someone else's schematic, since editing is really just creates a new schematic. And it won't work.
It keeps giving (It actually says electronics.stackexchange.com, more on that in a minute):
enter image description here

Since the ham se beta has access to the circuit lab as well, it might be a backend issue where the circuit button sends a different return url or the image address is associated with ham and not EE?


I copied and pasted the code to a new question in ham and then edited it there. It worked fine.


But on the same note, a EE schematic copied to ham and clicking on edit, will not work either. It's a cross-site/domain policy error. For XSS reasons no doubt. Or noone foresaw the Circuitlab tool being used outside of EE?
