Can a post be edited?


Recommended Posts

Yes Rodge, they can be.  After posting and sending, there is a menu bar (three hash marks at the top right). Click on that and "edit" is one of the choices.  Now I'll do it to be sure my instruction is right.

Actually it's three dots.  The options are "Report," "Share," and "Edit."

 

I just edited my previous post to add a missing parentheses, and edited this one to tell you about it.

Thank you so much, Ken. Trouble is, now I have no excuses :D

Whoa, I spoke too soon. Seems to be a time limit involved. I get the three-dot edit option on these current posts but not on earlier posts. Any idea what the time limit is?

Nope, no idea.  Can't recall such an issue.  Anyone have any idea?

Hello,

just a little bit shorter than you need it to be. :)

Very few, if any, forums allow posts to be edited after a short period to correct spelling mistakes or typos.

This one gives the author an hour before the editor is locked.

The hour is measured from the time of the last activity, not the posting of the first word.

Hello Don,

I don't know of any forums that allow a post to be deleted once it has been started and it can't be done here either.

That is one of the reasons why there are forum moderators.

It is of course still possible to delete all of the content

Nick Cooper deserves praise as a fine moderator. Not only does he keep things on an even keel, he has been patiently helpful when I've mucked up a post and asked his help in setting things straight.
