    With the new Forum Software I have suddenly lost all capability to edit my WiKi Model S Options by Year.
    Perhaps I am just not tech savvy enough but I just cannot figure out how to invoke edit.

    Second Issue:

    I used to have a link to the Wiki in my Signature. I had to remove it as it was sending me to a blank screen.
    I cannot figure out how to inbed a link into my Signature to the above WiKi...

    I hope you might be able to help out on this small matter.

    The new software is going to take some getting used to... I hope there are some real benefits to the administrators.

    thanks

    How do you cancel or edit a regular post, cannot find this. On the old set up it had cancel or edit along with the posting info.

    In case it helps, I can confirm that I can see the Edit button and appear to be able to modify the post (thought I didn't submit any changes).

    I would like to edit the Supercharger Progress wiki table, but the Edit button just gives me HTML code, which would be difficult and risky to modify in that form. Is there a way to edit tables using a table interface like the old site had?

    Totally agree.... I am totally baffled as to what to do for editing my Options Wiki.... the HTML tags are there and the editor does not do Wysiwyg with row and column functions at all.... sigh....

    @brianman was having the same problem in the Style Sheets thread:
    Forum stylesheets

    As the original poster, he doesn't see the "edit" link but the rest of us do and can edit.

    Yup... I was in that same boat... the admin (Danny great job BTW Danny) had to change the ownership of the original WiKi post from myself to WiKi and then I was able to see the edit. However, I cannot figure out how to edit my WiKi's tabular information as the editor shows all the HTML markup and the editor is having fits with the size of the post it seems...

    So for now no new changes to the Opitons By Year Wiki until a better solution is found...

    BTW FlasherZ I really like your new Avatar.... zzzzzttttt
