I saw that you seemed to have trouble adding a new page. With wikia's default switch to VisualEditor, I have seen that happen to a lot of people.
If you wish to switch back to seeing the edits the old way, here is how:
Place your mouse or cursor over your user name in the upper right hand corner of the any pages(in the dark green area on the very top). You shiould see a drop-down menu including "My preferences". * Select "MyPreferences" * On that page, select the "Editing" tab * In the section "Editing Experience", select "Wikia's classic rich-text editor" * Make sure to click the tiny "Save" button at the bottom, and you should be all set.
Thanks very much for letting me know how to change it, hopefully I can understand it again. I hated to leave the page I was adding incomplete but I'm not feeling well and was getting frustrated. I changed the editor and will go back in and complete that pattern.
Thanks again for taking the time to explain it to me.
