I have seen the earlier similar post but I believe my issue is different.
I have used Noteself quite happily for about two months, and I have different notebooks that I create/access simply by changing the Database name in the $:/ControlPanel. I have named my notebooks “MyNotebook”, “MyNotebook2”, “math”, and “chemistry”. I have not messed with anything below that (no CouchDB for me).
Today, when I opened Noteself by clicking the bookmarked html file that I always use (file:///C:/Users/EricX21/Desktop/notebooks.html), an version of “MyNotebook” (the very first notebook that I created) opened, but with no tiddlers. There are some italicized “open” titles of tiddlers I wrote (but none of them exist, hence italicized).
I cannot switch the database to any other of my notebooks, such as “MyNotebook2” (my main notebook and the one I had open last before this problem occurred). When I try to, I enter “MyNotebook2” into the name input, and press save config, and then when the page reloads it simply continues to displays a spooky and empty “MyNotebook” copy with the database name parameter set to “MyNotebook”.
This is confusing because I haven’t cleared my cache or anything, my notebooks were working fine and now they won’t switch. LocalStorage in Chrome is showing that the other notebooks exist, I just can’t access them for some reason. Here’s the Dev Tools display of LocalStorage:
Please help me save my notebooks! How can I access them again? Fingers crossed there’s a quick fix.
