  1. Hey Klinger, Carolyn (NIH/NCI) [C]. The Wave tool doesn't show any errors for the Confluence QuickNav gadget on this page. Could this be a solution to the problem we have with all the other wiki search boxes? 

    1. That's good that it passes but when I run Wave on, the main search box near the header passes as well, yet the Deque tool did not pass the search box. When we have a new tool that will be one of the first things I check. In the absence of a new tool, if we can get macros to pass Wave and maybe even aXe, or one of them, we can feel good about using it on a page.
