I thought I had a nonresponsive webMO job options button that was fixed, but it turns out it is web address dependent.

When I use localhost/~Tim/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi, I can get through drawing the molecule and selecting the job options, but I can't submit the job. The button is lit up but inactive, as are the forward and backward arrows, and the "help" cgi file is reported as "not found on this server" when the link is clicked.

Using http://macbook-pro.local/~Tim/cgi-bin/webmo/login.cgi fixes all the problems. It's a workaround, but is there a fix for the "localhost" problem?

I will need more data. Please check your web browser error log.

Please also verify your WebMO version, as this is likely an issue that has been resolved in recent WebMO versions.
