Postby Crinia » 13 Feb 2014, 07:27

Would someone please explain to me how to edit a post once it has been submitted (It's one I wrote)
Thanks

There’s an edit button at the top right of your post for a while after you’ve submitted it. This button seems to disappear at some point – I don’t know how long – and after that it looks as though you can’t edit or delete even your own posts. There’s a bit in the FAQs about it faq.php#f2r1

Thanks Gwion. I can see the edit button on the reply message you have just posted but there is no edit button on the post I'd like to edit. They must disappear after a short time.

You can edit your posts for 24 hours; you can delete them entirely as long as no one has responded or posted beneath them.
