Can the post's to Wiki be moved to somthing more useful? Somebody changed the layout and now I can not seem to find anything. The search function does not work. It has a ton of good information, but you can not find anything. The previous look had a "A-Z" page, that is now gone.

Or I'm missing the whole Wiki thing completely

Just search on "ISO". No page found but I could create one. Still there has to be a way to search the pages for written content.

It's pretty bizarre, but I did find the 'A-Z' page (also my favourite) by accident.

Look (on the main page) under the huge red POWER: there's the sentence

it's got links! click on 'articles' and voila... 'A-Z' !

PS [rant] I think non-underlined links are EVIL - what happened to HTML conventions ? [/rant]

The search is not broken. Search for "CHDK". A search query needs to be at least four characters long, to avoid too generic results. Unfortunately, some of the abbreviations used are two or three characters long, so they can't be searched for. You can use Google if you really need to search for shorter words.

Yes, I did find it later. Still, why not list the "A-Z" instead of the ramdom. What purpose does the ramdom page serve?

Sorry but I'm not much of an editor type.

Yes. I noticed they changed the default skin for wikia sites. But do you know that you can choose the skin for your account?
I always have used standard wikipedia monobook skin and ever did not see that change.

UPD: BTW. I have the permission to chenge the skin used by default. Or I can try to customize the current one...

For me this new scheme looks better than the Monaco one, same color as in the forum, a good choice !

The Skin settings seems to be saved as cookie, so with them enabled the settings get active even if not logged in - mostly i'm not logged in while browsing in the wikia...
