Know.WebHome Instructions unclear

On the Know.WebHome page under Starting points there is a bullet point telling the user how to submit a problem-solution pair. It says "type a new topic into the edit field at the top of this page". Firstly it is not crystal clear what the "edit field" is - presumably it is referring to the field after the "Go" text? But secondly, and more seriously, the way to create a new topic is dependent on the skin being used. Since we are not using the default skin, users were totally confused at this instruction.

The same comment appears in Know.ReadmeFirst.

This is one example of a more general problem of web content that is skin-dependent.

I agree, and rather than leave this to fester for another 2 years have submitted a patch that fixes it - see StopDistributingKnowWeb
