Hi Stephanie. I respondent to your posting a couple days ago, but I replied to the email message, so it never made to the forum. Here is a copy of my original posting. Some of it has been already mentioned here, so it seems you have a wrong system.template for math2. I thought this issue had been resolved a couple of weeks ago. I'm at a conference now, later this afternoon I'll check the files that are in the current distribution.
Here is my original posting:
Hi, I think I can see what is the problem. Did you, by any chance,
install/update WeBWorK about three weeks ago? There was glitch that crept
into some of the versions around that time that probably was fixed by now.
So, if you (or your administrator) update WW now, it probably will be
Here is a little more information, if you want to check if this is what
causing the problem before you go through the updating process. This is
probably more technical information than you care to know, but it may help
making sure that the problem is what I am thinking.
Here is how you may be able to see if this is indeed the problem. Go to
Course Configuration and check the "Theme" entry. You probably have "math2"
there. Change it to "math" and click Save Changes. Then, try to open one of
the problems with applets. It is possible that it will work in the new them.
If it does, you probably have one of the versions with the bug. Of course,
you want to be able to use math2 or math3, since they look much better.
To do further a further check, if you have access to the WeBWorK
installation in your site, you can do the following.
The problem stems from the line:
in the source code for the problem web page. This is where the applets
should be initialized. This line is introduced from a file called
system.template. You can go to the directory
/opt/webwork/webwork2/conf/templates, which contain a subdirectory for each
theme. Each one of these subdirectories has a file called system.template.
If you go to the directory math2 and open the system.template file there,
and search for a line starting with <body, you will probably find:
Now go to the directory for the theme math, and open the system.template
there. If you were able to open the applets correctly with the theme math,
the corresponding line in system.template will be:
<body bgcolor="white" onload="if (typeof(initializeWWquestion) ==
