Hi, I have a corporate SharePoint site and I am able to create a wiki, but the Edit button is missing from the Wiki Pages. If someone could share what the URL looks like to EDIT a Wiki Page, I might be able to format my own and get around this constraint.

So if my link is...
http://mysite.com/personal/blah/WikiSite/Home.aspx

is there some way to modify the URL like
http://mysite.com/personal/blah/WikiSite/Home.aspx?EDIT_ME_PLEASE
that will enable the Editing of the Wiki?

Thanks,

G

I suppose this may be a permissions issue, but I was able to create the Wiki, so I presumed I would be able to edit the wiki pages. I am also able to delete the Wiki.

If you goto the wiki library itself (where you can see all the wiki pages in the document library), can you hit the document drop-down menu and hit Edit?

Nope. I've given up. I believe it's a privileges issue. I am able to create the Wiki Site but not edit it. Fortunately, someone else in the corporation has been able to create me a Site and give me full permissions on it, so I'm all set. It seems that I could not overcome the permissions problem in my personal site.
