Yes, it is, thank you, englishholic. Hopefully, one of the administrative staff will soon fix it.

not include someone. In this example, Karen wanted to make sure that everyone who should be invited was included on the wedding list and would get an invitation.

Spot on, there really is something missing after "out" & before "she".
So would do here perfectly.
But there is a strange tendency to omit the words which're supposed to connect two clauses.
The way I see it is that the verb here must be used in Continuous. Something like this:
Having no desire to leave anyone out she went over the wedding list one more time.
But "to want" is not usually used in Continuous & consequently we have what we have.

Hi,

But you could say: Not wanting to leave ..... one more time.
