Posting to the Webcastathon Schedule

Illya,

  When you log in to http://worldbridges.net/
and go to: http://worldbridges.net/node/3565
 do you see an edit tab like this?

Posting to Webcastathon

Jeff, you are certainly asking the right question, because I do not see the tabs above. I fiddles a bit and got an outlook site, but I had problems navigating and couldn't post there either.

Any ideas?

Never mind. I realized I had to log in to Worldbridges separately. Got it :-)

Thanks!!! 

 

adding a webcastathon show

So how do I add a show? I don't use outlook and I tried to reserve a time, but I couldn't add a title for the show.

Thanks for any help  :-)

 

Illya
