    I have not been able to send email messages to the members of my wiki. What I mean is: they do not receive the messages I send them through the platform. What can be wrong?

    I was unsuccessful in changing the size of my photos. I was unable to find the “popup” that your new tutorial refers to. It appeared that I could not even highlight the photo -at least there was no cursor pulsing.
    Is that tool restricted to the upgraded wikipages?
    Is there a different way for me to reduce the photo size?
    Thank you.

    Para cambiar la apariencia de su wiki, vaya a la wiki, a “Manage Wiki” (en español “Administrar wiki”) y luego “Look and Feel” (o “Aspectos visuales”).

    A esta página, haga clic en el enlace “Themes and Colors.” Aquí puede cambiar la tema y colores de su wiki.
