Just a question, I am using the old editor and cannot get to my admin dashboard through the way you said...how do I get to it with the old editor? ᵗʰᵉʰºᵗʷʰᵉᵉˡˢᵍᵘʸ₉₉(ᵗᵃˡᵏ!) (ͨºⁿᵗʳ'ᵇˢ) 13:56, September 21, 2015 (UTC)
You mean the old skin - monobook. I'm afraid the admin dashboard (and other features) aren't available on that. You can go to Special:AdminDashboard but it doesn't give you the same options as if you use Wikia skin.
