  • I have just updated 2 patterns as a Vendor (Butterick 3960 and Style 5193) but the edits have not come up as they usually do.  Is there a problem with me or the Wiki?  How do I rectify this?

    • Hi,

      There is a recent change to the default edit mode wikia made automatic - it's called VisualEditor.  It is supposed to be easier, but I suspect it could oonfuse users familiar with the old way.

      You can change your preferences back to the way you used to see the edits by following these steps:

      • 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.

      P.S.:  In the future,if you want someone to see your questions quickly (I stumbled across this question on your own page by accident), you need to leave the message on that person's message wall.

  • I wish to add myself as a Vendor of Pattern Style 4018 but as yet there are no names on the list.  When I try to add TheVintageSewingB I can't get passed the top line.  What should I do please?

    • Have you tried just hitting Return? 

      If you still have trouble, click on the Source tab at the top of the edit box, hit return after the == and proceed from there.

  • Hi again,

    When adding a vendor link, please use the right format:

    Asterisk *, then opening square bracket [, then the URL, then a space, then your store name, then a closing square bracket ].

    Example:

    That way, it will look like the other vendor links.

    Please ask if you have questions.

  • Please read your messages and comply with Vendor link rules.  The links you added that do no comply have been removed.

    • Sorry, I'm not sure what I've done wrong.  I have brought up my page on Etsy and copied the http address at the top and used this to add to the Vendor list.  What should I have done?

      When this is sorted can my block be lifted so I can add my Vendor details to some more patterns I have for sale?

    • Vendor links must lead directly to the pattern listing, not your top store link.

      Please read:

      http://vintagepatterns.wikia.com/wiki/Vintage_Sewing_Patterns:About

      Do let us know if you have additional questions.

      The block has been lifted, just needed to get your attention, after repeated bad entries.

  • Again, links that do not comply to the few rules we have, will be removed.

    Please take a moment to read your messages and the About page, as indicated in the previous messages.

  • Hello,

    Welcome to the wiki.  Please note that there are some rules for vendor links - they must be an actual link, must lead to a pattern listing (not a store name of front or summary page), etc. 

    Please take a moment to familiarize yourself with our About page - see link in the original welcome message below - before proceeding any further on this wiki.

    The invalid entries you made have been removed.

    Best regards
